They say that good things come in threes and that is certainly true of Evolve Family Law as the team has recently welcomed family lawyer Sarah-Jane Whittaker, to add to their other two recent family solicitor hires, Ellie Stokes and Eluned Roberts.
Sarah has recently qualified as a solicitor and will specialize in family law, at the Evolve Whitefield office. After years of education and training in Cheshire and Manchester, including part-time studies whilst employed as a trainee solicitor, Evolve Family Law seemed the natural choice for someone as young and as ambitious as Sarah.
Evolve founder, Robin Charrot says, “At Evolve Family Law we value hard work and dedication to our clients. As soon as I met Sarah, I knew that she would fit right into the growing team at Evolve. That’s because she has worked hard to get to where she has and you can see the fire and ambition to do her best for her clients, whatever the challenges along the way”.
“What many people don’t realize is that law firms rely on young legal talent like Sarah, Ellie, and Eluned to drive their business forward, particularly for the long-term future. It also means that Debra Lowy and I can use our very extensive family law experience and expertise in combination with support from Sarah, and from our legal assistant Tracey Carney, in order to provide a team-based approached, which supports clients in the best way, while keeping our overall charges down as much as possible”.
“It is ingrained in our philosophy to not only provide the best family law advice for our clients but to encourage our young talent as they are Evolve’s future. Evolve was the first Northwest law firm to convert to full employee ownership in 2022 and that makes it particularly important to us that our new family law solicitors fully understand the importance of quality of service, and continue to keep our standards of service sky-high, for the benefit of our clients, both now and far into the future”.
Sarah-Jane Whittaker says, “I am the first person in my family to go to university and that gives me real pride in qualifying as a solicitor. I knew family law was the right specialty and Evolve was the right law firm for me as I became a lawyer to help people. That’s why I love my job as a family lawyer as it gives me a real sense of achievement when I contribute towards a successful child arrangement order application or divorce financial settlement”.
