Hi there - I just thought I'd let you know things are going really well and I'm learning loads! I'm also now enrolled on the STEP diploma and I'm due to start on it next month. Thanks so much for your help in this!

I have worked with two members of the LR Legal team. Both Brenda and Leilani have been supportive and proactive in finding me the right fit for my next role. They took the time to listen and advise me on how best to achieve them within the firm that offered me a position. Leilani impressed me with her hard work and honesty, she could put me at ease and best prepare me for the interview. I wouldn't think twice about recommending the firm or Leilani to friends and colleagues.


Alison was incredibly helpful. Having not interviewed for a number of years I was grateful for her experience and sound advice. She certainly boosted my confidence and I was offered the position I wanted from the very first application I made. Thank you again.
