Corbett Le Quesne has announced that the firm’s paralegal, Iselin Jones, is a finalist in the Family Law category of the National Paralegal Awards.
The Awards, which are in their inaugural year, aim to recognise paralegals throughout the legal sector.
Iselin joined the firm in February 2018, having converted from her career as a local journalist, by completing a LLB at the Institute of Law in Jersey.
She is currently half way through the first year of the Jersey Law Course, which will set her on course to full qualification first as a Jersey Solicitor and then as a Jersey Advocate.
Advocate Barbara Corbett said: “We are really proud of Iselin’s achievement so soon after starting her legal career. She is perfectly suited to the family law environment, bringing the right balance of empathy, understanding, and intellectual rigour that we need in this area of law. We are thrilled that her skill has been recognised so soon, and look forward to her career developing further with us.”
Winners will be announced at a dinner at the May Fair Hotel in London on 29thMarch.

The news of Iselin’s shortlisting comes just weeks after the firm was awarded runner-up in the IFC Awards Boutique Law Firm of the Year category.
Advocate Le Quesne commented: “Being runner up in this category after only a year in business is fantastic news for Corbett Le Quesne. We are delighted that our work is being recognised and that we are making a mark on the profession so soon.”
