Julia Woodward

Legal Assistant - Family Law

What do you do?

I am a legal assistant working in the family department under the supervision of Saika Alam.

Describe your average day

I don’t think I have ever had an average day! Generally speaking, however, my main roles include liaising directly with clients and barristers’ chambers, preparing court bundles, dealing with enquiries and drafting papers.

What do you like about your job?

I enjoy making a personal connection with our clients and helping them to resolve their issues in order to achieve a positive outcome. I also like making (sometimes extremely!) spicy chutney which I get to test out on my colleagues.
