Name Clare Tinker
Job Title Paralegal – Stage 1 Team
How long have you been with Price Slater Gawne? 8 years
What does your role entail? I enjoy what I do and to be honest I’ve never been interested in doing anything else. I get the opportunity to speak to some really lovely people and it feels good when I’m in a position to help them. The Stage 1 team are the first point of contact for the firm’s clinical negligence department, and how we communicate with clients is very important. Of course, we have to make a good first impression. I’ve had some lovely comments from clients in the past – even when we’ve not taken their cases on, so this makes my job  really worthwhile
What do you like about working at PSG? I love being able to work from home and I get a lot more done with not having to travel. Price Slater Gawne is a lovely team and everyone who has been hand-picked to work for the firm seem to all have a similar work ethic
What three words would your friends use to describe you? Kind, caring and compassionate
What would we most likely find you doing at the weekend? Training, dog walks, spending quality time with my family and enjoying good food with a nice glass of vino!
What’s one of your favourite memories from the past 10 years? Getting married in July 2013 and taking our three children on honeymoon to Florida. It’s one of the best holidays I have ever had and it was so nice to go away as a family. My family is the most important thing in my life and being able to spend time together has always been important to both myself and my husband. Our eldest children are both 22 now and are doing their own thing, but it’s really nice to have those precious memories
What’s one thing most people don’t know about you?   I used to be in the Air Cadets when I was younger and achieved a Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Award
