Expansion continues apace at McAlister Family Law with the appointment of experienced family law solicitor Charlotte Percy as associate.
Formerly an associate at Slater & Gordon, Charlotte has more than seven years expertise acting for clients on a variety of family law matters including divorce and the associated financial settlements, disputes involving cohabitants and arrangements for children.
Her approach and commitment to achieving results have caught the eye of the legal community and she has been recognised for her work on many occasions, being shortlisted for Rising Star of the Year, Mentor of the Year and previously Trainee Solicitor of the Year. Only last month, she made the Northern Power Women shortlist and will go forward for a prestigious Future Women ‘Agent of Change’ award which will be announced in March.
Passionate about charity and the Manchester community, Charlotte also gives up her time to support worthy local and international causes. She is a trustee of Helping Uganda Schools (HUG) which aims to reduce poverty in Uganda through education and is an ambassador for Forever Manchester working with the team to raise funds to make a positive change in the neighbourhoods across Greater Manchester.
After graduating from Lancaster with a law degree and gaining a distinction from the College of Law in Manchester, she has remained active in the legal community and now chairs the Manchester Young Solicitors Group and sits on the council of the Manchester Law Society.
Charlotte’s appointment perfectly complements the fast growing team that is currently being hand selected by managing partner and founder of McAlister Family Law, Amanda McAlister.
Amanda commented: ‘Charlotte is a dynamic, energetic and proactive family lawyer who works tirelessly to provide an exceptional service for her clients. I’m delighted that she’s chosen to join us and am confident that she will enhance our impressive team.’
Charlotte said: ‘Amanda’s vision to create a boutique family law practice that could offer a personal service right across the UK was definitely something that I wanted to be a part of. McAlister Family Law is already setting new standards in the industry and fast becoming the ‘go to’ practice for family law nationally.’
