Sara Smith of Devon County Council talks about her experience of winning an award with DASLS

Once I had got over the shock and pleasure of being nominated for the award of best in house lawyer category by private practice it seemed very quickly that I was at the awards evening at the Exeter Chiefs Rugby Ground.

 

Fortunately for me on the night of the awards I was very well supported with good friends and work colleagues who all very much wanted me to win the award and were all delighted when my name was announced.

 

When you work in child protection it is a job that only people that do the same type of work understand. It may not be the best paid job for a lawyer but it is very satisfying to get a good outcome for children and hope that you have made a real difference to their lives so to be appreciated for the job is brilliant.

 

Working for council and receiving such an accolade meant that the press office was quick in publicising it and I even got a mention in council’s chambers at one of their meetings.

 

Local Firms of solicitors were very forthcoming with their congratulations.

However after a few weeks it was soon back to normal until I then discovered I had been nominated for the national award too. 

 

The award has not made a difference in my job from day to day but has been a good morale boost.
