BB Law boosts its family team in Preston

Birchall Blackburn Law has expanded one of its specialist departments with the appointment of Amanda Long.

Amanda, who is 31 and from Blackpool, joins the firm’s private client department from Barker Booth and Eastwood and will be based at Birchall Blackburn Law’s Preston office on Avenham Street.

She will assist clients on a range of family law matters, from those who require guidance through separation and divorce to financial disputes and cases involving children.

Amanda has over 12 years of experience in the field of family law and is an Associate Member of the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives (CILEX). She completed her paralegal qualification in 2007 and started her Chartered training in 2012. Her specialisms include family law and property.

Amanda said: “I am proud to be part of a growing team delivering expert advice to those who are going through an often upsetting time following the breakdown of a relationship.

“Birchall Blackburn Law really stood out as a firm dedicated to client care and also nurtures its people, which is something I really value.”

Partner at Birchall Blackburn Law, Gillian Graveson, added: “This area of law is moving apace. It was important for us to appoint someone with a strong skill set but Amanda’s approachability will also help her build a good rapport with clients.

“I am sure she will fast become a valued member of the team.” Birchall Blackburn Law is one of just a handful of law firms to hold nine Law Society accreditations across its service areas, also holding the quality mark in Family Law, Conveyancing, Insolvency, Children Law and Commercial Litigation.
