Sarah Kelly

Legal Secretary, Darwin

It’s the third time around at Ward Keller for Sarah Kelly, who has worked as a Legal Secretary at the firm for a total of six years around maternity leave and her husband’s Defence postings.

It’s always a natural choice for Sarah to come back to Ward Keller. She’s worked in the firm’s commercial, litigation and now family law divisions.

‘It’s something new—I’ve never done family law before, and it’s been really interesting’, said Sarah, who rejoined the firm in November 2018.

‘I think you’re a bit more personal with your clients in family law, which I’m enjoying.’

Sarah supports the firm’s family lawyers, Tessa and Elizabeth, with general enquiries, preparing and lodging documents, and ‘all the usual secretarial stuff’. ‘Tessa and Elizabeth are great to work for’, she said.

Outside work, Sarah is kept fairly busy with their two young children. ‘They take up most of my spare time!’
