Realm launches its first podcast: Refreshing Chats with Family Lawyers

Posted on 19/8/2020 by Katherine Memery

We are excited to announce that we have launched a brand-new podcast series featuring conversations with some of the North West’s most successful family solicitors.  

In Refreshing Chats with Family Lawyersour director Duane Cormell and family law recruitment specialist Paula Pawlowska will candidly interview some of the biggest names within family law to learn more about their paths into the legal profession, their jobs day-to-day and career successes and how they spend their time away from the office. 


The first episode is released on Wednesday 19th August and will feature Michael Chapman, National Head of Family at JMW. Subsequent episodes will be released each week, with guests including David Lister, Head of Family Law at Simpson Millar, Joanne Radcliffe, Partner at Brabners and James Maguire, Managing Director at Maguire Family Law. 

Senior consultant Paula, explains how the Refreshing Chats with Family Lawyers came about: 

"Podcasts are becoming increasingly popular; we all listen to them on the way to and from work. With family law arguably the most intriguing legal practice area, we wanted to show family lawyers in a more personal light. We hope that anyone who has an interest in family law or is looking to qualify as a family solicitor and would like to understand how to get there will enjoy listening to the podcast.” 

You can listen to the first episode of Refreshing Chats with Family Lawyers here or by downloading it from Apple Podcasts, Spotify or wherever you usually get your podcasts.
