Hi, I’m Helen, I’m married with 2 children (a dancing princess and a swashbuckling pirate) and a crazy Cockerpoo called Leo!
I have been part of the Forrest Williams family since March 2012 and have loved almost all of it! It’s a privilege, sometimes a very hard one, to help guide and support people at what can be some very distressing parts of their life. I have laughed and cried with clients and rejoiced with them when their case was concluded.
To say that joining Forrest Williams was a challenge would be an understatement; I joined with no formal legal training (a few EU law modules a decade earlier at uni were little help) but what I did have was a background in customer service and corporate relations and the ability to learn – and fast! I realised that I could learn the law and that I enjoyed it to the point that I (some may say crazily) decided to go back to Uni (part-time) to qualify as a solicitor.
When I get the chance to relax it’s a quite night in with my husband; a nice film, glass of wine and a take-away (Chinese if I get my choice) and maybe some Haagen-Daaz if I’m really being indulgent!
