Sara Morgan Celebrates Two Decades of Legal Excellence at Ramsden Lawyers

long-term success stories in the legal sector are rare in a fast-paced and ever-evolving industry. So it is with great honour that we celebrate Executive Paralegal Sara Morgan’s remarkable 20th anniversary at Ramsden Lawyers. From her initial role as the firm’s receptionist, she has risen through the ranks to become not only one of our most valued team members but a real story of success as well. Her journey is a testament to hard work, dedication, and the supportive environment at Ramsden Lawyers. In this article, we reflect on her career at Ramsden Lawyers and explore what she enjoys most about coming to work each day.

The Beginning of an Incredible Journey

In 2004, Sara Morgan’s journey at Ramsden Lawyers began with an unexpected opportunity. A remarkable woman named Helen Lewis, captivated by Sara’s red hair, encouraged her to meet John Ramsden for a receptionist position at the firm. At the time, Sara was a single mother with limited financial resources and no legal background. Despite these challenges, John recognised her potential and offered her the role on the spot. Aware of the need for professional attire, John generously provided Sara with $300 cash to ensure she could purchase appropriate corporate clothing. This act of kindness marked the beginning of a long and rewarding career for Sara.

What Sara Morgan Enjoys most about Ramsden Lawyers

When asked about her long-standing commitment to Ramsden Lawyers, Sara did not hesitate to attribute her loyalty to the close-knit relationships she has cultivated. “It’s like family,” she explained. “John has watched my children grow up, and I have watched his. We’ve seen each other get married and have grown together since we started working here at 25 and 26 years old.”

Sara has also formed some of her closest friendships at the firm, particularly with Partner Belinda Northam, who has been instrumental in her career and personal life. “Belinda and I were friends (through Ramsden Lawyers) long before we started working together in the Commercial Team. We were worried that work might impact our friendship, but we actually work exceptionally well together – I think because we have the same work ethic and expectations.” This bond only gets stronger, as Sara and Belinda now have children around the same ages who have become great friends as well. Having friendships at work is crucial for Sara, as it provides essential support during challenging times. She emphasised that laughter in the workplace is a vital part of her daily work life.

Passion for Her Work

Sara takes immense pride in her work, particularly in achieving successful client outcomes. “I love a successful result. When you work hard to achieve the best outcome for the client and successfully achieve that outcome for them, it gives me a great sense of pride,” she explains. This dedication to excellence has been a driving force in her career and continues to motivate her daily. Her commitment to client satisfaction and her ability to navigate complex legal challenges have made her an invaluable asset to the firm.
