North West law firm Farleys Solicitors has continued the firm’s expansion into 2023 with the appointment of four specialists to the family law team.
The arrival of solicitors Hollie Randles and Victoria Boswell alongside paralegal Bob Worsley and joined by qualifying solicitor Katie Sharples, allows Farleys to meet the continued high demand for family law services in Lancashire and the North West.
Hollie Randles joins the firm having qualified into family law in 2021 after previously working as a paralegal in the field. She specialises in children law, including care proceedings and is proud to work in an area where she has the ability to make a positive difference to the lives of families and their children.
Victoria Boswell qualified as a family law solicitor in 2022 having previously graduated from the University of Central Lancashire with a Master of Laws with Honours. Victoria also specialises in children law, and prides herself on her empathetic and compassionate approach to clients during what is often an extremely difficult time for families.
Bob Worsley will be supporting the team from the firm’s Blackburn office as a paralegal having previously worked in the media industry before taking the decision to seek a new challenge and converted to law via the GDL.
Katie Sharples has qualified from the firm’s training programme after completing two years of training. Prior to beginning her training contact, Katie joined the firm as a paralegal in the family team. Having displayed a keen interest and skill in this area of the law, she has now taken up a permanent role as a solicitor in the team upon her qualification in January 2023.
Antonia Love, partner and head of the family law department at Farleys, commented: “The demand for family law services, including divorce and child arrangements, has continued to increase since the pandemic and the introduction of no-fault divorce laws. We’re delighted to welcome Hollie, Victoria, and Bob to the firm and Katie to the team on a permanent basis. All four bring excellent skills and will be an asset to our team and clients.
We’re pleased to be able to expand our offering to family law clients and look forward to continuing to assist people across Lancashire and the wider country.”
