The successful adult social care lawyer will be joining a team which has grown significantly in the last couple of years due to the success and growth of the work which is coming into the team. You will have significant support and training with the Principal Lawyer and the team work collaboratively and support each other on cases when needed which creates an excellent environment to work in.
