Opportunity Missed and Taken Green Road Sign Over Dramatic Blue Sky and Clouds.

Humphreys & Co. are always interested to hear from lawyers & support staff with good skills or good training enquiring as to the current availability of positions within the firm.

What do we think makes a good lawyer?

  • Dependability – when you are given or take responsibility for getting things done, people can count on your getting them done right
  • Mastery of the law – knowing the law in detail and in depth
  • Quick thinking – the ability to make decisions quickly and get them right.
  • Getting to the bottom of things – not skating on the surface
  • Seeing the wood for the trees – identifying structure, purpose and importance amongst a mass of detail.
  • Hard work – not just sitting under the tree waiting for the fruit to drop.
  • Luck – being in the right place at the right time and grabbing the opportunity.
