What our Family Law candidates and clients say

 

“Paula helped me find my latest role and couldn’t have been more helpful, encouraging and practical. She made what can be a very stressful time really straight-forward and simple. I would highly recommend!”

Lucy Williams, Solicitor at Vardags

 

"Paula was fantastic – she clearly had top candidates in mind when we first met but she took the time to listen to our needs, ethos and plans before suggesting anyone to meet. The first candidate we met was the one who eventually joined us so her instinct was right.
 
Paula communicated throughout the process and followed up in a personable way; ensuring both us and the candidate had settled in well. 
 
I would certainly recommend Paula for any future recruitment needs." 

Chris Longbottom, Partner at Clarke Wilmott

 

“Paula is great to work with, being both professional and friendly. She took time to get to know the firm and its culture to make sure she offered candidates to us who she believed would fit in. I would highly recommend.”

Louise Halford, Director at Evolve Family Law

 

“Realm were introduced to Maguire Family Law by recommendation and we have not been disappointed... We have only ever received appropriate CVs, excellent communication and client care. Thank you, team Realm.”

Eimear Maguire, Partner at Maguire Family Law

 

“Paula was extremely professional, knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with. She very quickly understood the needs of the business and provided excellent candidates very quickly. I would not hesitate to recommend her and will certainly work with her again in the future.”
