We’re hiring!

As our plans for growth continue, Major Family Law is looking to recruit for two new positions on our leading law firm’s specialist team:

*An experienced consultant family lawyer, who enjoys the autonomy of remote working. He or she can be based anywhere in England and will be employed on a generous fee share basis. The working hours would be flexible, making the position ideal for an experienced Practitioner/Partner who wishes to reduce their working hours and be free of any management responsibility. No existing case load or client leads are required and as noted, your geographical location will not be an issue.

*A junior or mid-tier family solicitor, who has a minimum of 12 months post qualification family law experience. This will be a full-time position and will be based in our well-appointed Ponteland offices, with flexible part home working also available.

Major Family Law is a thriving and busy family law practice. We are based in Ponteland near Newcastle but work with lawyers and clients across the country.

We are “top ranked” in the current edition of both the Legal 500 and Chambers and Partners guides, where we are described as:

“… a boutique family law firm, providing the highest quality family law services in the North East. All those who have dealt with the firm have been hugely impressed by the combination of expertise, forthrightness and emotional intelligence the team shows.”

“They are all exceptionally good at what they do – and understand the importance of the whole client experience.”

Since Managing Director Joanne Major established Major Family Law in 2009, the team has grown steadily from a standing start and now consists of 11 family lawyers and a designated Court paralegal.

Our consultant lawyers have worked remotely, supporting the office-based team, for some years now, and two have worked remotely from their homes in the south-east since they joined the firm. As the legal world begins a journey back to normality after the disruptions of 2020, we look forward to welcoming new colleagues.
