Major Family Law Manager Joanne Major continues her reflections on 2019

As our 10th anniversary year draws to a close, I have been taking a look back at some of the year’s highlights. One was undoubtedly maintaining our ranking in influential legal directory the Legal 500.

This international publication is designed to help prospective clients locate the best legal firms in their area or required specialism before instructing them.

Our ranking paints a compelling picture for potential clients. We offer a “dedicated and thorough service to clients with family law problems”. I am cited as “imperturbable” while our two directors Anna and Lucinda are said to be  “tenacious and a “skilled advocate” respectively.

We were able to assemble a gratifyingly lengthy list of client testimonials to strengthen our listing. These include:

“Visiting the office is a joy – the professionalism of all staff who provide a very sympathetic and courteous service does make some of the difficult subject matter you are there to discuss far less traumatic.”

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

“All those who have dealt with the firm have been hugely impressed by the combination of expertise, forthrightness and emotional intelligence the team shows.”

Thanks to our very talented team of 22, we now enjoy a dominant share of the north east family law market, annual turnover in excess of £1 million and double digit growth. But there’s no doubt in my mind that solid third party endorsements like that of the Legal 500 are a significant new business driver in their own right.
