Janette Sawyer

Legal Assistant

Janette joined the firm as a school leaver in 1994 and worked as a legal secretary within the Private Client Team at the Holsworthy Office for 6 years. She was subsequently promoted to the role of manager at the Nationwide,a busy Building Society Agency situated within Peter Peter & Wright. For over 10 years Janette assisted customers with their financial affairs.  After the Agency ceased in December 2011 Janette initially assisted in our Accounts Department before taking up a fee earning position within the Private Client Team at our Bideford Office.  She is now a Legal Assistant specialising in the Administration of Estates.

A loyal member of staff Janette is well known in the community and well regarded for her helpful advice and assistance.

Janette says: “It seems like I have come full circle having started work at Peter Peter & Wright in the Private Client Team and then now working in that area again, but I really feel this job is right for me.  I am a sensitive, caring and approachable person which the role requires when dealing with family and friends after someone close to them has passed away.   I like to think I take some of the pressures away at this very stressful time”.
