Wendy Webb

Legal Executive

Wendy Webb joined John Fowlers Solicitors in 1991 as a newly qualified legal executive, which currently makes me one of the longest serving members of staff.

“I initially worked as a legal secretary upon leaving college, and quickly realised that I enjoyed the profession and began training and studying to become a legal executive, achieving distinctions in criminal law and procedure diplomas. Once qualified, I joined John Fowlers as part of their criminal department and quickly worked up to become a fee earner in my own right and qualify as an accredited police station representative.

I currently work to provide advice and assistance for clients within police stations and run my own case load of magistrate and crown court cases. I also work closely with our in-house advocates and barristers to prepare cases for trial.

No two days with the firm are ever the same, and I love that a duty at the local police station could involve a variety of scenarios such as: shoplifting, fraud, assault or murder, among many more. Each case involves developing an understanding of a clients’ situation, an assessment of the evidence and the giving of advice. I thoroughly enjoy the interaction with people from all walks of life and seeing a case unfold to conclusion.

Due to recent cuts in legal aid rates and threats to future legal aid contracts, I have more recently taken the opportunity to move into another area of law – wills and probate. As such, I am currently undertaking training in the administration of estates, wills and powers of attorney with the aim to run both areas of work alongside one another.

Having been with the firm for 23 years, the team is like a family to me. People may come and go over the years, but the core structure remains of a firm that cares and wants the best for their clients.

When I’m away from the office I enjoy keeping fit and am a very active member of my local gym.”
