Vickie is a Paralegal in the highly experienced Court of Protection team. Vickie started out as a legal secretary providing efficiency & much needed secretarial support for the team. From where she then transitioned into a Paralegal. She has now worked for Boyes Turner LLP for almost 10 years and is a vital part of the team. Vickie has continuously learnt on the job and now deals with costs and the overseeing of billing.
Vickie’s role involves sending instructions to the in-house Costs Lawyer, dealing with requests for missing notes, e-filing the final bills of costs and uploading the files to the Document Upload Centre (DUC). Then when the assessed bills come back, Vickie calculates the final amount due for that period, completes a draft Final Costs Certificate and bill summary and then submits via e-filing for a sealed Final Costs Certificate. Vickie really enjoys her role at Boyes Turner and is an asset to the team. With the encouragement of Ruth Meyer, the Court of Protection Partner, she took a numeracy course which she passed with flying colours.
Vickie has a 9 year old nephew who is her world. Vickie enjoys cooking when she has the time to do so. Vickie is also very crafty and makes greeting cards, knits, crochets and does cross stitch.
