Getting to know you – Jade Paine

We have caught up with the next person lined up in our new series of posts on our blog - 'getting to know you'. Each month we'll be catching up with one of our lawyers, and asking them 10 questions, about themselves, the law and their favourite things.

Next up is Assistant Solicitor, Jade Paine.

1. What is your favourite part of the job?

Well I really like people so I genuinely the fact my job allows me to help people by taking pressure away from them in what can be an emotive time.

2. What made you choose law?

There was one case where, upon arrival at the estate, we had to deal with a tortoise at the back of the garden about to go into hibernation.

5. Why did you specialise in Wills & Probate?

I have always really loved this area of law and have realised how interesting it is. Also, because of the nature of the work, there is lots of contact with clients which allows me to be really supportive throughout.

6. What’s your favourite food?

Such a hard one but I would say Greek food or raw carrot cake batter.

7. Favourite season?

Summer, because I am a huge sun worshipper!

8. What is your most favourite word?

Onomatopoeic, because I like words that sound like what they are.

An RSPCA inspector as I am a massive animal lover.

What is black and white and red all over? A sunburnt penguin.
