Area of expertise:
Kim Weiser, Paralegal/Secretary specialising in Family Law. Assistant to Zharna Sutaria and Michael Bottrill. I have worked within Family Law for over 30 years. Initially, I was taken on as a float secretary but very swiftly was moved to work permanently for the Family Law Department of a firm in South Ruislip. Following the dissolution of a partnership I moved to work for a Sole Practitioner; as the firm consisted of one fee earner, a bookkeeper and another secretary it was necessary for me to undertake a more fee earning position by attending Court and Counsel in Conference, preparing draft documents for the fee earner, preparing bundles for Court, as well as general secretary duties. I was also heavily involved in collating and preparing the Office Manual which was utilised in obtaining a Legal Aid Franchise. I was with this firm for 11 years and following redundancy, I moved to another Family Law practice where I went from being a Secretary to a Paralegal with my own case load (including typing of my own work), although continuing to assist the Family Law Partner. I also undertook all the Legal Aid billing and private client billing for the Family Law Department. On occasions it was also necessary for me to assist the general typing if there was a backlog. I was with this firm 8 years. When I joined Bottrill & Co I was again taken on as a Secretary but over time my position has progressed to undertaking more Paralegal work and Secretarial position. I worked for Bottrill & Co for 11 years prior to acquisition with Vyman Solicitors on 13 April 2017.
