Toni Dillon

Job title?

Legal Secretary

What does your role at Silk Family Law involve?

I am part of the support team at Silk Family Law.  I am designated to provide secretarial support for Kim Fellowes who I have worked with for many years now. My role is varied; providing secretarial support to Kim and other solicitors, welcoming clients into our reception for meetings, answering telephone calls and dealing with general queries from clients and other solicitors.

What did you do before you joined the team?

I have always worked in an office environment doing different roles but just before I joined Silk Family Law, I was working as a PA in a Further Education College so doing legal work was totally new to me when I joined Silk. 

What is your favourite part of the job?

It’s satisfying when one of our cases has gone really well with a good result for our client, and just to have been involved in that, albeit in a small way is rewarding. I have lovely colleagues and we all get on well together.

What do you most like about working at Silk Family Law?

My lovely colleagues and the varied work that I do. No two days are the same which means it’s never boring! Family law is a really interesting field of work and I am learning all the time.

What else would you like to be doing if you weren’t doing this role?

After a lot of years in an office environment, I think I would like to do a job that takes me outdoors in the fresh air.

What is your perfect day away from the office?

Just being with my family, a day trip out, lovely food and drinks and lots of laughs.

What would you do if you won the lottery?

If I won the lottery, I would make sure that my family and people that I love would be set for life and then I would travel the world in style.

Who would you most like to have a drink with and why?

I would like to meet up with some of my family who now live in Canada.  I haven’t seen my brother-in-law and sister-in-law, nieces and nephew for a few years now, especially since the pandemic, so to have a good catch-up with them in person would be fantastic.
