Anita Laws

Chartered Legal Executive


Anita is a Chartered Legal Executive. She is a member of the family law team and specialises in divorce, separation and their financial consequences. She also deals with children disputes.

Anita’s alternative career choice was nursing but in 2003 she took a secretarial job at Cartridges Law. Supported by the firm she studied part time and became a lawyer. She now takes cases all the way through from initial meeting to final settlement, including where necessary advocating for her clients in court.

Clients find Anita to be open, frank and clear in her advice. Previous jobs (for example, as a manager in a school kitchen) and her life experience generally have given her a grounded approach which is reflected in her pragmatic understanding of what people want and need from their lawyers. Anita’s satisfaction is in helping people who need to get through a difficult time, and on with their lives.
