Legal Staff Solutions is based in Victoria, British Columbia and is owned and operated by Sharon Wilcox who has been a member of the legal community in various capacities for over 20 years. This service originated to fulfill a demand in providing temporary and permanent placement of qualified and competent legal personnel.
Sharon Wilcox started her legal career in 1983 while with the Legal Registries Office in the Department of Justice at Yellowknife, N.W.T. She worked there as a Second Deputy Registrar. She moved on to the private sector as a legal assistant in real estate and conveyancing where she was appointed as a Notary Public in and for the Northwest Territories.
She relocated to Victoria, BC in 1991 where she continued her work as a legal assistant/conveyancer. She was a legal instructor at both Camosun College and Sprott Shaw Community College in Victoria. She was appointed as Camosun’s Practicum Supervisor for the legal program at the college and was responsible for arranging the placement of 29 students into the workforce in law firms in 2000.
It was her keen interest in assisting these students that brought her to the business of providing valuable job placement assistance to legal staff and lawyers. Legal Staff Solutions has been a primary focus for Sharon since 2002 and she is dedicated to continuing her efforts in this area.
