Wilsmlow-based Hilary Meredith Solicitors Ltd has expanded its service offering with the launch of a Family Law department.

Already regarded as the UK’s leading Military law firm and Personal injury specialists, the firm has appointed highly regarded solicitor Paul Reay to head up its new team.

Paul, who joins the firm from Lewis Rodgers Solicitors in Macclesfield, is experienced in dealing with all aspects of relationship breakdown, including divorce and finances, cohabitation, children matters and domestic abuse matters. He adopts a straightforward and pragmatic approach which helps him build an excellent rapport with his clients.

Commenting on the firm’s expansion into family law, CEO Hilary Meredith said:

“We felt the time was right to extend the range of legal services on offer to our clients.

“Having dealt with the often unspoken personal issues that arise from a catastrophic injury and having witnessed first-hand how we can help individuals and families through difficult periods in their lives I felt passionately that we could use our skills and expertise to extend our advice and support to a wider community.

“Securing Paul as Head of Family Legal Services enables us to accelerate our plans to extend the full range of legal services to all our clients – new and old.”
