Rachel Underdown

As a Paralegal at Fullers Family Law, my responsibilities include supporting my team on client matters, liaising with clients, completing administrative work, drafting legal documents and managing my own caseload for fixed fee divorce cases.

I will be undertaking the Solicitors Qualifying Exam (SQE) shortly with the aspiration to become a fully qualified Family Solicitor. Fullers Family Law stood out to me as a forward-thinking firm, with a national presence and a supportive working environment.
I wanted to work for a law firm that specialised solely in family matters, with like-minded individuals who share the same passion for family law as I have.
My approach towards clients is to be supportive, approachable and understanding. I take the time to listen and therefore understand our client's goals.
I believe it is important to communicate effectively with clients and take a proactive approach to resolving matters.
I have also volunteered for two charities during my career, including:
•    The Criminal Justice Initiative
•    The Langsett advice centre

I have also undertaken a year abroad in Valencia where I studied the Spanish legal system.


“Rachel was very helpful through the whole process. She was informative, professional, explained everything clearly & kept me up to date with each step. Rachel was quick to respond with any updates or answers to questions I had, as was Sophie in her absence. Would highly recommend Fullers Law!”

“What should have been a relatively easy divorce took a turn that I hadn't expected and I thought it wasn't going to be a possibility. Rachel at Fullers told me there were options, one of which I chose to take. Throughout the process she was friendly, professional and gave me all the help I needed. I now have a good future to look forward to and I'd highly recommend Fullers who made it all possible.”

“I contacted Fullers in respect of divorce and financial matters. I was really struggling when I contacted them at the outset but the lawyers who dealt with my matters were brilliant. They put me at ease and explained everything clearly to me. I felt like they were on my side and fighting my corner. Now that things have completed, I am on the right track to move on with my life and in a really good place thanks to Fullers. I have already recommended Fullers to family and friends.”

“I used Fullers for around 18 months due to the complicated and protracted nature of my situation. Everyone I spoke to was knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. Any questions I had were answered and they were always available to assist and guide me through. They were realistic and honest with me throughout and worked hard for me so I felt well supported. Although I didn't get the result I hoped for this was purely circumstantial and should I need a solicitor again I would certainly use Fullers. I would also recommend them should any of my family or friends need legal advice or assistance.”

“My divorce case has been dealt with swiftly and promptly with minimal fuss, I was kept up to date with progress of proceedings. The initial quote for a fixed fee divorce was spot on as this was the exact amount I paid, with no additional costs. Would highly recommend.”

“I contacted Fullers to have a Change of Name Deed drawn up. I had a free telephone consultation first to get some general information as to the process which was very helpful. I then instructed Fullers, as I felt confident they were the right lawyers for me. Rachel and Natalie who dealt with my matter were very friendly, easy to contact and kept me updated as to progress from start to finish. The whole process went very smoothly and I would recommend Fullers to anyone needing advice in respect of family matters.”
