The South West’s leading family law specialists have appointed a new solicitor to their outstanding team in Plymouth.
Kirsty Thyer, a member of The Law Society’s Adult and Children Panel, joins Hartnell Chanot & Partners having built up an enormous amount of experience dealing with child care proceedings. After qualifying as a solicitor Kirsty went to work in-house for several local authorities, first in Milton Keynes and later for Cornwall Council.
Having spent 12 years working for these councils’ care and litigation teams, Kirsty took her valuable experience to the private sector where she continued to work on child care and public law matters. Kirsty was attracted to Hartnell Chanot & Partners because of the specialist nature of the firm and the excellent reputation of their large children team.
Kirsty stated: “I find it incredibly rewarding to use my skills and experience to help vulnerable people, in particular children.” She went on to say: “I am there to make sure that the children in these cases are put first and that they have a voice.”
Julie Shrimpton, Director at Hartnell Chanot & Partners, said: “We are delighted to welcome Kirtsy to Hartnell Chanot & Partners. Her specialist knowledge of local authority procedures will make a valuable contribution to our existing team and her approach to client care is in keeping with the high-quality service that people have come to expect of our firm.”
