  • Dealing with legal aid applications
  • Conducting your own advocacy if applicable.

The experience you’ll bring to the team

  • A qualified Solicitor or Legal Executive (1 PQE +)
  • Family experience is essential
  • Panel membership is an advantage
  • Knowledge of Legal Aid systems
  • Advocacy
  • Professionalism and courtesy with clients and colleagues


What you’ll get in return

  • An excellent opportunity to establish a work, life balance
  • Working for an established, Welsh law firm with a family feel and culture
