Ramsdens are delighted to announce that Vikki Horspool, Associate in the Family department is a finalist at the upcoming Family Law Awards.

Vikki has been shortlisted in the Associate of the Year category.

The Family Law Awards were launched by Jordan Publishing to recognise the important work of family lawyers, and celebrate their many successes and outstanding achievements.

The Family Law Awards are means for Family Law and its readers to acknowledge the hard work and commitment throughout the year amongst the nominees and the profession as a whole.

Vikki Horspool comments: “I'm incredibly honoured to be nominated and something that I never expected. Some say that Legal aid work is a vocation not a career choice and it's certainly not what they teach you at law school! You are dealing with the most vulnerable of society and you often end up becoming the social worker, counsellor, supporter and lawyer. Despite the pressures (particularly due to the decimation of legal aid) I find my job my job extremely rewarding and get a great deal of satisfaction from it so to be recognised for it and nominated for this award is an added bonus.”

The awards take place at the Grand Connaught Rooms in London on Thursday 8 October.
