Karen Prior

Legal Secretary

Job role at EMG

I am a legal secretary for the Family team at the Penrith office, providing support to fee earners on a variety of family matters regarding divorce, finance and child arrangements.


Before joining EMG, I worked at a small commercial law firm for 8 years providing secretarial support to their employment and commercial property departments. In 2023 I joined EMG as a family secretary and am enjoying working in a new area of law.

What do I like about working at EMG?

EMG is an amazing firm made up of amazing people. Everyone is approachable, helpful, kind and supportive which cultivates a positive working environment. I believe this contributes to us providing a high quality, dedicated service to all our clients.

Outside of EMG?

I am a busy mum of two boys and together we enjoy exploring the Lake District with our 3 year old cocker spaniel, Lady, giving her lots of great adventures in the beautiful countryside where we are blessed to live.
