A Good Legal Secretary Is Worth Her Weight in Rubies

I may have mentioned in a previous post that I love to read obituaries. The good ones provide glimpses into lives well-lived and celebrate people who left their mark during their lifetimes.

Mrs. Lena Cinnamond, late of Northern Ireland, died last week, but she was a legal secretary for many years and left a deep impression on the attorneys she worked for – working until she was forced to retire in her 70s due to ill-health.

Solicitor Brian Walker gave her the highest praise a lawyer can give a staff member:

Lena was great fun, had a great sense of humour, totally professional and very precise. She taught me a lot at the start of my own career and was as knowledgeable as any solicitor. She was invaluable to my career and my practice, and it was indeed a sad day when she retired. She was a wonderful colleague and friend and will be sadly missed. She was unique.

That’s the kind of attorney-staff relationship anyone would be lucky to experience.
