Julie HughesHead Legal Cashier
Additional Qualifications: Legal Finance and Management Diploma ILFM(Dip)
Hello, I started my journey with Cullimore Dutton in August 2007 as a Legal Cashier, joining the firm from Cheshire West and Chester Council, which was where my interest in legal finance began. At that time the firm was still known as Birch Cullimore, and I soon realised this was the place for me. Throughout my time here, I have always felt supported and encouraged to grow.
In 2016, I studied for and gained the Institute of Legal Finance and Management Diploma (ILFM(Dip)) with distinction, further enhancing my legal and financial knowledge, skills and expertise. Later that year I was thrilled to take on the role of Head Legal Cashier, a promotion which involved me joining the senior management team and which has allowed me to further contribute to the success and reputation of Cullimore Dutton.
I pride myself on having meticulous attention to detail which I believe is crucial to the handling of financial matters. As Head Legal Cashier, I take a great deal of pride in ensuring the financial operations of the firm are maintained with the highest level of accuracy, whilst being compliant with both the SRA and FCA Accounts rules.
When I’m not crunching numbers and keeping the cashflow in check, you can find me outdoors enjoying the simple pleasures of life; walking and cycling being my go-to activities to unwind. Above all, I love spending time with my children and family which brings me the greatest joy and fulfilment.
