Family Law Solicitor, Wakefield

Due to an increase in instructions, a family law solicitor or legal executive is required for this modern, regional law firm. The firm has practices across Yorkshire and holds a number of accreditations, including the Law Society's Lexcel Quality Mark.

You will join a small, close-knit family law team that gain instructions predominantly through footfall and reputation in the region of West Yorkshire.

As a family law solicitor or legal executive you will manage your own caseload of varied private matters, including:

- Divorce and separation
- Financial issues arising out of family breakdowns
- Children Act
- Civil partnership matters
- Pre-nuptial agreements
- Separation agreements
- Cohabitee agreements
- Domestic violence
- Family protection injunctions

There will be departmental paralegal and secretarial assistance however as this is a fairly autonomous role you will be experienced enough to deal with most tasks with limited supervision.

The successful family law solicitor or legal executive will have:

- a minimum of two years experience, ideally working with both private paying and publicly funded clients
- Experience dealing with financial related matters and an interest in this area of law
- An ability to work autonomously
