Hello, I’m Kate Brooks and I’m a specialist family lawyer at Woolley & Co, Solicitors. Family law is a second career for me and I retrained about ten years ago prior to that I had a fourteen year career in marketing, managing teams and brands across Europe and I think that experience and particularly my negotiating skills has stood me in really good stead as a family lawyer. Clients tell me I’m pragmatic, and I think it’s really important to find out how the law works and establish as soon as possible what your options are and its equally important to know what’s unrealistic from the start.
One of my areas of specialism is very much dealing with businesses in divorce and again my background comes into play there. As well as being a family lawyer I am also a family mediator and I find that that really gives me a different approach in dealing with the arrangements for the children in divorce. On a personal level I’m married, I’ve got two kids and we live on the Northamptonshire, Leicestershire border. That said I’ve got clients all over the country and indeed a lot of ex pat clients as well. I always offer 30 minutes on the phone initially so do get in touch and I’d be happy to talk through your options with you.
