South based family lawyer picks up prestigious UK award

02 Apr 2019

Salisbury-based paralegal and Family Law specialist at Trethowans, Dawn Gore, has been honoured with a national legal award.

Dawn was named Best Family Law Paralegal at the National Paralegal Awards last week.

An extremely experienced paralegal and certified Family Law assistant, Dawn specialises in arrangements for children following parental separation or divorce. Also advising grandparents following the breakdown of a parental relationship, she is highly respected for her efforts to adopt a ‘no court’ approach wherever possible – with a view to achieving agreements and preserving coparenting relationships.

“I’m absolutely delighted to have been shortlisted, let alone to win this prestigious award,” Dawn said. “Helping families achieve the best possible outcome for their circumstances is rewarding enough so this industry recognition is the icing on the cake.”

Dawn is a Fellow of the Institute of Paralegals, the highest grade of membership for practising paralegals, and is recommended in the independent legal directory, Legal 500. She has worked for Trethowans for 32 years.

Head of the family team at Trethowans, Andrew Mercer, said: “We’re so proud of Dawn winning this award. It’s thoroughly well deserved. Dawn provides superb assistance and her attitude to this very delicate area of law is second to none.”
