Melissa Portlock joins our expanding Family team


We're delighted to welcome Melissa Portlock to the Family team, who joins to help manage the growing demand for our family law services. 


Melissa worked as a Legal Assistant and Paralegal at a Specialist Family Law firm in Bradford for three years before qualifying as a Chartered Legal Executive in June 2021.


Melissa joins with a wealth of experience in relation to Legal Aid, Injunctions and Private Law Children cases. Legal aid is a vital resource which allows those without sufficient funds to access justice, and Melissa’s experience in this area will further strengthen our ability to manage such cases.


She joins at an incredibly exciting time for the business, having recently opened our 5th site in the West Yorkshire town of Hemsworth, and recruited Tamara Dove-O'Hara into the Family team earlier this year.
