Shirin Kumar, Legal Assistant, Family Team at Hedges Law

Shirin Kumar

Legal Assistant

After graduating in Law I made the decision to start a family. I had the pleasure of raising my children whilst working in numerous challenging roles in the public sector, including the Royal Courts of Justice and the NHS.

Supporting my family is my priority, so I appreciate being able to help clients during what could be a very difficult time in their life. I love being part of a team that does such important and complex work and I feel honoured to be part of the family law team at Hedges.

In 2020, I was appointed foundation governor at St Thomas More Primary School, where I could use my experience and skills to help the school in their journey of continuous improvement.

I enjoy travelling with my family and taking my children to experience new things.
