Careers at AGR Law

Our approach

Award-winning AGR Law consists of a dedicated team led by Directors Gina Samuel-Richards and Ruth Goward.

We are proud of our long track record of providing the best legal advice with the highest standards of client care. Our team understands that people seeking legal advice are likely facing adversity, so we listen to them and support their emotional needs whilst persevering to achieve the best possible outcome for their case.

Our three core principles are trust, honesty and integrity, and every member of our close-knit team uses these to guide the support they provide.

Current vacancy

A great opportunity has arisen for an ambitious junior solicitor or FCILEX with experience in family law who will embody our values of excellence in client care.

We often deal with complex children matters both in private and public law and financial remedy cases involving substantial assets. As a high percentage of couples are no longer getting married, we have an increasing caseload for ToLATA cases, therefore there is scope to work both in the family and civil courts.

Ambitious for yourself and the client, you will need to have advocacy skills and the ability to work on your initiative, as you will be expected to run your own family law case files in both private and legal aid work.

You will be based out of our Leicester office, which provides a warm and supportive working environment, but hybrid working is available for the right candidate. Paralegals are available to assist you in the office.

Specifications are as follows:

  1. 1-3 years PQE (Solicitor or FCILEX)
  2. Family law experience in matrimonial, domestic abuse and children
  3. Experience in advocacy
  4. Works on own initiative
  5. Experience in legal aid work, or be a quick learner
  6. Work in a fast-paced environment
  7. Be au fait with LEAP or other case management systems

Benefits include:

  • Training and professional development
  • Supportive growth culture
  • Professional networking opportunities
  • Competitive salary
  • Hybrid working for the right candidate

We are keen to hear from applicants who want to gain hands-on experience to establish themselves in a role where their longer-term career development is supported.
