Major Family Law, Divorce and Family Law specialists based in Ponteland, Newcastle comment in The Legal 500 Annual review of the region’s top law firm supplement on Friday 24 September 2015, in a time where the landscape of family law has changed beyond all recognition in England & Wales, it is reassuring to know that there remain those experts in the field who are not only able to react and adapt to such radical changes, but who remain committed to providing uncompromising first class service and in securing new and improved methods of doing so which are responsive to clients’ needs and lifestyles.
Described in the latest edition of the Legal 500 as a “modern law firm that is innovating with the times for the benefit of its clients”, Major Family Law has always been synonymous with innovation and quality within the field of family and matrimonial law.
A young, dynamic team of lawyers which comprise the Major Family Law team belie the extent of their combined professional experience. They are widely acknowledged by clients and peers alike as being technically highly skilled and knowledgeable whilst remaining approachable, supportive and accessible to their clients.
Practice founder and head, Joanne Major is recognised in the Legal 500 not only for her legal expertise, particularly on financial issues, but because she “constantly strives to better the service offered to clients”. This is reflected in the major rebrand which the business underwent at the beginning of the year, which included a fresh, new website specifically designed to facilitate ease of access to relevant information and resources for clients.
In a profession traditionally labelled as archaic, Major Family Law prides itself on not only recognising, but effectively utilising the digital era to deliver its services to an ever widening audience. Use of media such as Skype and FaceTime means lawyers are able to communicate directly with clients nationally and internationally. This is combined with the firm’s growing network of associations with law firms abroad to enable clients living and working in other countries to access legal advice relevant and specific to their individual circumstances.
This approach has led to a notable increase in internationally based clients, including from Italy, Venezuela, Spain, Eastern Europe.
The Deputy Vice President of the Law Society has said of Major Family Law, “I found it refreshing to hear about your creative and entrepreneurial approach to legal practice. In the current economic climate it is reassuring to meet someone with a clear vision of what your firm’s brand should look like, with a strong understanding of your clients and a view of where the firm is heading in the future”.
