Stephanie McAulay joined Tilly Bailey & Irvine Solicitors at the end of 2021 to become part of the firm’s Private Family Department.
Clients looking for the best possible advice and representation on family law and private legal matters will not be disappointed when enlisted with Stephanie’s support, as she forms part of TBI’s trusted team dealing with matters that include divorce, finances arising from such and child arrangements. In relation to child arrangements, Stephanie has particular expertise in advising and guiding clients as to resolving how children spend their time between their parents or other disputes that arise in respect of children from time to time. If matters cannot be resolved Stephanie can assist clients through the court process.
Stephanie is a member of Resolution which is a national organisation made up of specialist family lawyers who aim to approach matters in a non-adversarial manner which when dealing with child arrangements means she puts the children’s welfare at the forefront at all times.
Stephanie enjoys travelling, experiencing other countries’ cultures, food and dance moves. She lived in Ghana for three months on a Law and Human Rights Internship which she found to be a great experience as she had to deal with highly emotive and complicated issues, for which there were no easy solutions. She revels in searching for viable resolutions. She learnt how to tailor legal materials and jargon to meet the needs of people from different cultures and backgrounds. She liaised with, worked alongside and referred individuals to other organisations.
Stephanie is, therefore, well versed in sign posting clients for additional advice from third party professionals as and when it may be required to progress a case.
She was proud to be handed a Hardwicke Award and a Mary MacMurray Scholarship from Lincoln’s Inn which enabled her to undertake her bar exams. She enjoys advocacy and where appropriate, will happily represent clients in court.
