A Happier End to the Week!
There is an old saying that sunshine always follows the rain. The destruction of my blog yesterday was upsetting but fortunately it was only short term. However, today I have some great news.
We have today signed up to a property in Central London, literally 2 minutes from the family court (aka the Principal Registry on High Holborn); and when a makeover has taken place, Stowe Family Law will be opening its third office. In London!!!
I have always dreamed of working in London. Starting off as I did from the most humble of beginnings, working in an office that was in fact a converted cobbler’s shop in a run down suburb of Leeds, little did I ever think one day it would become a reality! I could have exchanged contracts earlier in the week, but waited until today because today is my late Granny’s birthday. I’ve written before about how much I valued her friendship, her wisdom and unconditional love – and I wanted to honour her memory in this way.
I was very moved by the compliment that I received this year from Chambers and Partners, in their guide to lawyers that “Marilyn Stowe has built the successful practice and wins excellent results for clients”.
I actually owe it unreservedly to my team.
It would not be possible to turn a dream into reality and open an office in London without their help; – we are a team of 19 solicitors plus our trainees, an in house forensic accountancy department and a proficient admin team who all together make up Stowe Family Law. The resources that we have, the experience, the knowledge, and the abilities – yes, I would say that, but believe me, if I wasn’t 100% certain we cut the mustard, I wouldn’t be heading into the lion’s den!
So I’m hoping we will bring some of our “Northern Charm” to the practice of family law in Central London, giving of our all and going the extra mile, in exactly the same way we do now for our clients from our offices in the north and north-west of England.
Have a great weekend and many thanks for all your support.
