Specialist law firm Thomas Mansfield Solicitors has strengthened its Family law practice amid increasing demand for its services. The firm has welcomed lawyers Amelia Montgomery from a London based firm Woodfords Solicitors LLP, and Martina D’Avino from Tier 1 Legal 500 regional firm Tees Law.
Amelia and Martina advise on all aspects of family law and work with a wide range of clients, including high-net-worth individuals with international aspects to their cases. Both solicitors are members of Resolution, a community of family justice professionals who strive to resolve issues in a constructive way. Martina also sits on the Young Resolution National Committee and Amelia is active as a member of The Law Society’s Junior Lawyers Division and American Women Lawyers in London.
The growth of the firm’s 19-strong Family law team comes as the practice responds to a surge in enquiries for their specialist advice. The double appointment follows several recent hires over the course of the last 18 months and the development of the firm’s international family law services in France and Spain.
Susi Gillespie, Head of Family at Thomas Mansfield Solicitors, has commented:
“We are very pleased to welcome Amelia and Martina to the team at this exciting time. We have seen unprecedented growth in enquiries throughout the pandemic as people re-evaluate their lives and look to the future. Amelia and Martina’s experience will complement our existing offering and ensure we continue to meet this increase in demand along with maintaining our commitment to excellent client care and supporting our clients to achieve their desired outcomes.”
