This week we are continuing our ‘Meet the Team’ series where we get to know some of our team members at Carr & Co Solicitors. Today we’re sitting down for a quick chat with the newest paralegal to join our team Caitlin Scott who works at our Morpeth office.
Which areas of law do you deal with?
I deal with Personal Injury, Civil Claims and Debt Recovery. In previous employment I also dealt with Noise Induced Hearing Loss and Industrial Disease.
What made you want to pursue a career in law?
To help people and to have an opportunity to listen to their stories. I like helping them through any issues or problems that they are having and if possible resolve them.
What is your favourite film and why?
Mary Poppins. I’ve watched it since I was little and its just happy and fun. I recently watched the new Saving Mr Banks film and it made me like Mary Poppins even more. You’ve got to love a good musical!
What is your proudest professional moment?
I’ve only been graduated a year so I don’t know if I have one yet. Getting to work in the profession that I studied for has been a pretty big high so far.
What is your favourite novel and why?
One I read recently is called The Girl On The Train, which is being made into a film. Its about a girl who loses her job but wants to keep up appearances so she continues to get the train into London every morning. Its written from a split perspective and almost like a diary. Its really cleverly written and one of those books that you just can’t put down.
If you could try any other job for a week what would you do?
I would quite like to work in a prison. I worked for a year in a drug and alcohol rehabilitation service in the police cells. People who go to prison are often dealing with a lot of issues that get swept under the rug. I think I would quite like to do that and try to help those people.
