Carlyn Gough

Paralegal Secretary

Carlyn joined Samuels as a receptionist in 2005, after working in various jobs in North Devon. Her exceptional client care skills were quickly recognised and she was encouraged to retrain as a legal secretary, working in the litigation department. 

Since retraining as a legal secretary, Carlyn has worked for a number of different fee earners over the years and is now the personal assistant to partner, Judith Thompson, carrying out a range of secretarial and paralegal work.

She is one of the most well-established and senior secretaries in the firm, with a wealth of invaluable litigation experience. Clients and colleagues value her professionalism and good humour in equal measure. 

In her spare time, Carlyn enjoys walks on the moor, reading and being a mum to her young son.
