In our latest ‘60 seconds with…’ interview, we chat to Court of Protection specialist and finalist in the recent National Paralegal Awards, Michael Cressey.
How long have you worked at Brachers?
Coming up to 10 years, I joined Brachers on 13 December 2010.
What made you get into law?
I have always been interested in law, from when I was younger watching tv programmes and films. I am local to the area so when I heard of a position at Brachers, a local law firm, I jumped at the chance. I always remember getting the call from HR in 2010 offering me the job. The first thing I did was call my nan, as she had been worrying about me!
What advice would you give to your younger self?
Dream big. How will you have a dream come true, if you don’t have a dream to start with. Be confident and be yourself.
What’s been the top highlight of your career so far?
There have been quite a few. Being a finalist in the National Paralegal Awards would have to be one that’s for sure. That aside, I think the rewarding feeling of growing and developing our teams is also a top highlight.
Sum up working at Brachers in three words
Rather hard in three words as there are so many positives, but I think I’d have to say; enjoyable, rewarding and fun.
