Melanie supports both Alison Whistler and Paola Cuffolo in the Family Law Department. Her friendly, but sympathetic nature, and attention to detail, helps to ensure clients always have the legal and practical support they need. She’s on hand to take calls or email enquiries from new clients and is always happy to provide a progress report for existing clients or take a message when Alison or Paola are away from their desk. As someone who’s hugely conscientious about her work she’s an invaluable member of the department.
A career in a range of firms has seen Melanie move from secretarial and administrative roles to Legal Cashier in a large Basingstoke-based law firm, where she spent 15 years. Melanie joined us here at Horsey Lightly in 2016, and has been assisting in the Individual & Family Law Department since 2017. With her financial background it should come as no surprise to learn that she’s happiest when helping a client put together their financial disclosure as part of the financial negotiation process.
Life beyond the office
In her spare time, Melanie likes to take in a film at the cinema, a live performance at the theatre, and the buzz of a live music concert. On a quieter note, she also enjoys the fresh air of a country walk.
