Legal Assistant

‘Working together for the same goal’

It took some years to come to the realisation, but after earning her higher professional education (HBO) degree in law she knew for sure: ‘I want to become a lawyer. Or: to go and do the real work.’ She moved on to Erasmus University Rotterdam where she earned her Master’s degree. And now her path continues through Guido de Wit Advocaten, where she works as a Legal Assistant. From there, she hopes to grow to the position of Trainee Lawyer.

Romy Heynis was given a tip on the tennis court about Guido de Wit Advocaten. ‘I knew the office by name, because the office is located in a prominent location along the Alkmaar ring road that I pass every day. I sent a letter and was invited for a meeting. That meeting, during which I was really challenged, inspired me enormously. Moreover, I immediately felt at home in this environment and that feeling has only been confirmed so far. While studying at university, I worked in the claims department at an insurance company for a number of years, but given the company structure, the lines of communication there are long and (legally interesting) matters are often outsourced. This is where it really happens – you’re much closer to the case and you’re allowed to support it from start to finish.’

Romy receives many different assignments and supports the lawyers in their day-to-day work. ‘We work hard here, but it offers a great deal of satisfaction. The lines of communication are short and what really appeals to me is the direct contact with Guido de Wit. That’s not as common as you might think. It says a lot about the power of this office: working towards one goal together and not knocking off the work on your own at your desk. Furthermore, the office has a homely warmth. Not a sterile room with glass, but a nice place to be. That’s why I hope to be able to work here for a long time – to learn a lot and to continue to grow.’
