Celebrating its 10th year in business this month, Major Family Law is a force to be reckoned with in the family law arena. The progressive family law firm based in Ponteland is now the fastest growing niche practice in the North East and continues to take new instructions from both the UK and abroad.

Founded by Joanne Major in January 2009, the practice has expanded from a kitchen table operation to a respected firm with a strong reputation both regionally and nationally, thanks to the hand-picked team of family law specialists, consultants, and legal assistants who dedicate themselves to putting client well-being at the forefront of their work ethos.

In what has been a turbulent Brexit period and for the legal profession generally, Major Family Law has determinedly bucked the trend and continued to grow in strength, size and reputation. With the end of the financial year on 30 September, the practice was delighted to announce its most successful performance to date with a 25% increase in turnover on the previous year, reflecting the attitude of individuals that Major Family Law is the go-to practice for family law advice.

The work undertaken on a routine basis covers all aspects of private family law including divorce, separation, pre and post nuptial agreement, complex and high net-worth financial disputes, private children law, specifically with jurisdictional and international elements.

There is major talent in the young, highly effective team who are all dedicated family lawyers, experts in their field and committed to ensuring that all their clients are treated with respect, compassion and the utmost professionalism. The management team was bolstered with the appointment of senior solicitor, Lucinda Connell as a Director in January 2018. Lucinda’s experience and gravitas adds weight to the firm’s professional armoury.

Exciting plans are afoot this 10th year in business with the recruitment of more specialist family lawyers, a further expansion of our bespoke premises and a revision of our established brand to reflect the firm’s growing professional stature which combined reinforce its reputation for being a market leader.

The ethos of Major Family Law is quite simple; they provide themselves on providing a top flight bespoke service without the prohibitive hourly rate of city centre practices.

If you, a family member or indeed a friend therefore need help with a family matter this year, surely you would want to know you had placed your future in the hands of “the best” wouldn’t you?
