Woolley & Co appoints new family law expertA local boys’ football team assistant manager has scored off the pitch by joining a pioneering firm to help people in the Ashby area with their family law matters.
Andrew Robotham, aged 40, is the latest recruit for Woolley & Co, a rapidly expanding specialist family law firm which works with high-level lawyers working from home offices to offer a fast, efficient service to clients, and offering fixed fee services directly from www.family-lawfirm.co.uk
And Andrew, who runs the Hilton Harriers under-10s team, is looking forward to the challenges of managing a range of issues, from divorce to child matters.
“Working with Woolley & Co gives me the chance to concentrate more on fewer clients and to be more available to fit the needs of my clients through flexible working,” said Andrew, who grew up in south Derbyshire and has a well-established client base in the Ashby-de-la-Zouch area.
“It is about building the service around the client rather than clients having to fit around the practice, which is perhaps the more traditional approach.
“This is a very exciting move for me and I am very much looking forward to the challenges ahead.”
Derby County fan Andrew, who is married with two children, has worked as a family lawyer for more than 20 years. Previously head of the family department at two local legal firms, he has experience of dealing with all areas of matrimonial law.
He is an accredited and active member of Resolution, an organisation which promotes the settling of issues in a non-confrontational and amicable manner, in particular relating to the children law and domestic violence issues. He has been a Fellow of the Institute of Legal Executives since 1996 and also sits on The Resolution Domestic Violence Panel in London
Andrew Woolley, managing partner of Woolley & Co which he founded in Stratford-upon-Avon in 1996, said: “We are delighted Andrew has joined the team. He will be a great asset.
“The firm is going from strength to strength, continuing to expand and now has top level family law experts across the Midlands and the south.”
Woolley & Co lawyers operate from satellite offices around the UK. The firm’s use of e-commerce and web-based technology means its legal experts offer a fast, efficient service to clients – an approach which has earned it a reputation for innovation, flexibility and dealing in plain English.
