Solicitor / Practice Manager
Steph qualified as a solicitor in 2003, after training with award winning Legal 500 and local Norwich firm, MJP solicitors. After heading their family department, Steph moved to FLC in 2006 and subsequently became a director in the company.
Steph takes a down to earth, no nonsense approach. The family lawyers’ group, Resolution, operates a rigorous accreditation scheme so that the public can recognise those lawyers who are truly family law specialists. Steph is an accredited Resolution specialist in divorce finance and domestic abuse cases, and she also holds The Law Society’s own family law panel accreditation.
Steph is sympathetic, clear and approachable and she works hard to help her clients through life’s challenges, using her legal skills to achieve realistic goals. She always acts with consideration, respect and honesty.
Steph’s clients say of her:
“She was a star for me and kept me on the straight and narrow. She kept the light shining at the end of the tunnel. She was a pleasure to work with from a professional point of view and also personal.”
Steph is married to Tom, a landscape designer, and they have a young son, Joseph, who keeps Steph busy when she’s not at work.
Steph is also our super organised, reliable and efficient practice manager who keeps everything running smoothly. Steph has the responsible and demanding task of managing all the ‘behind the scenes’ day to day running of the office. Steph does this with finesse and provides significant support to the firm’s solicitors , enabling them to focus on casework and client care.
