Save for a short stint, Wendy has only ever worked in family law. In the main for all-service firms in Durham, Teesside, and North Yorkshire, and at one stage for a niche specialist family law practice. Whilst based in the North East, she does have clients who are based nationally and internationally.
Her dedication to her career also saw Wendy becoming an accredited specialist family lawyer with Resolution – an organisation that advocates a non-adversarial approach and a more collaborative way of dealing with cases.
“Resolution offers a more cooperative approach to resolving manners,” Wendy explains.
“Additionally, we often bring in third-party professionals who can aid the early resolution of issues between parties, particularly where valuations are required be it property, land or businesses
“Working cooperatively and collaboratively with solicitors for the other side and third party professionals helps in achieving goals, and it’s part of my job to ensure that the expert is a specialist in their field, one who I can trust to provide as accurate a report as possible. At the end of the day it is an extension to the high standard of service I expect to provide to my clients so I try to work with professionals I know and trust.”
