Industrial Disease Paralegal
I joined Oliver & Co Solicitors in 2005 as a secretary in the Personal Injury and Industrial Disease teams before being promoted to Paralegal in 2008. It is my job to assist our team of solicitors in tracing insurers and the companies our clients worked for. Time is of the essence in asbestos disease cases and so it is not unusual for me to visit clients in their own homes in order to take statements and obtain further information to assist our team in achieving the best possible outcome in any case.
I also arrange the hearing loss advice clinics which are offered to potential clients suffering with noise induced hearing loss and tinnitus. My organisational skills ensure these run smoothly.
Charity is at the heart of Oliver & Co Solicitors, we help raise money for Macmillan Cancer Research, who in turn help our clients when they need it most, as well as a number of other Cheshire Charities. I regularly organise fundraising events for the firm, including the Hope House Challenge which raised over £3,000. I also organised the company’s crew for a charity Dragon Boat Race on the River Dee.
