Rachel Harwood, Legal Assistant, Disputes Team at Hedges Law

Rachel Harwood

Legal Assistant

I have worked in the legal sector for 15 years now, having started off as an Office Assistant and working my way up to become a Legal Secretary.

I am experienced in working with teams in a range of different areas of law, and spent many years working in the Criminal and Immigration Team at another law firm in Oxford.

I love my role working in the Dispute Resolution Team here at Hedges, helping to give our clients the best experience and providing assistance to my colleagues which I thoroughly enjoy – I am a great team player!

I have a young son who has just started secondary school which has thrown up lots of new challenges, but I am enjoying seeing him grow into a fantastic person who I really enjoy being around.


"When I needed help the team at Hedges was a lifesaver. Rachel Harwood, along with the team, provided their urgent assistance and support, both during and out of working hours, to enable me to secure a last minute court agreement that safeguarded me and my family. "
