Three new appointments to complement existing team

Everys Solicitors is delighted to announce the expansion of its Family team with the appointments of two new solicitors and a legal assistant who all joined the firm on Monday, 8th June, 2020. The new appointments come at a time of substantial increase in demand for Family Law services.

Moira Reynolds has joined Everys as a Partner and Head of the Family department. Moira has over 19 years’ experience within Family Law and her career also encompasses three years as a law lecturer at Weston College. Moira is a very experienced lawyer who provides constructive support and expert advice on all aspects of relationship breakdown. In addition, Moira also has particular expertise in dealing with complex and/or high net worth financial matters.

Lisa Miller has joined the firm as a solicitor. Lisa undertook her training contract at a firm in Bristol and qualified in May 2018. Lisa specialises in divorce, financial settlements and children matters, as well as non-molestation matters.

Both Moira and Lisa also provide advice on cohabitation agreements and pre and post nuptial agreements. Moira and Lisa are both members of Resolution, the national organisation for Family lawyers.

Accompanying them into the Family department is Holley Fitzpatrick who has joined as their Legal Assistant. Holley has an in-depth knowledge of the workings of a Family department and will be the primary contact for both existing clients and new enquiries. Holley is a dedicated and meticulous legal assistant with excellent administrative skills.

Commenting on the appointments, Moira said: “We are truly thrilled to be a part of Everys and being able to complement the existing team. Everys is a forward-thinking and progressive firm that has responded quickly to the changing social landscape, and we are looking forward to helping and advising clients through the challenges presented by the current pandemic.”

“This is the first time we have brought in a team that has previously worked together, and we are excited to welcome them to Everys,” said James Griffin, Managing Partner.

“With the current pandemic, we have seen a surge in enquiries for our Family legal services and we have used this time to focus on our clients’ needs. These appointments will strengthen the team in numbers and will allow us to increase our capacity to provide the service our clients require, particularly in these times. Moira and Lisa are first-class lawyers who are friendly and approachable, and Holley is a very experienced and highly regarded legal assistant. We are delighted they have joined our team.”

Moira and Lisa are available to meet clients at any of our six offices. Please call 0800 8840 640 if you would like advice regarding Family Law services.
