Early September was of historical and cathartic significance to me as founder of Major Family Law, as I expanded into my neighbouring premises at number 10 West Road in Ponteland, Newcastle upon Tyne.

Number 10 was my very first office when I started out on my journey of self employment and established the firm ten years ago.

The room in the above picture was my client reception area a decade ago, but it has now been transformed into the contemporary and stylish conference room at the heart of our suite of offices.

This two months since the move have been a busy time, with many of us desk- and office-swapping as we get used to our new surroundings.

Churchill once said: “…to improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often.” So our plan is to spend the next decade striving for perfection!
