Edgar Venal Family Justice Narration
Where do you fit in to the family justice system?
I am the country's foremost divorce solicitor, senior partner at leading firm Venal & Grabbit.
What do you do in a typical week?
Bill about £20,000.
Why do you do the job?
What do you like about the system and what do you not like?
I like full-blooded litigation, no holds barred. Mediation and other types of ADR are for wimps.
How do you see the family justice system?
It's a cash cow.
What is an important influence on your work?
How do you combine your family with your work?
Both my wife and my mistress understand that my fee-earning comes first.
Will you be doing this job in ten years time?
No, I will be retired to my villa on Mustique.
What are your ideas for change?
Well, I will be increasing my charging rate each year.
