Amanda McAlister presented with Services to Law award

02.07.2019

Our managing partner, Amanda McAlister, was last night presented with the Services to Law award at the English Women's Awards - North. 

The awards recognise the contribution made by women to various industries and professions, and are a showcase for the exceptional work carried out by those women throughout the North. 

Before establishing McAlister Family Law, Amanda was National Head of Family Law at Slater and Gordon Lawyers, one of the United Kingdom’s largest law firms.  She holds the status "Eminent Practitioner" with Chambers and Partners, and is one of only a handful of individuals in the North West singled out as a Leading Individual by the Legal 500.

She has acted for leading figures in the world of sport, entertainment, government and media, as well as high profile business people and many others.  She is also ITV This Morning's resident family law expert, regularly appearing on the programme to answer viewers divorce and child law queries.

 "I have dedicated my professional life to serving the law, so it is a singular honour to receive this award," said Amanda. "Here at McAlister Family Law, we pride ourselves on being the John Lewis of family law, offering our clients an unrivalled depth and breadth of service; this award is for all of the team and their extraordinary talent and dedication."

  3. Medical need or providing care
  4. Travelling to or from work (if you can't work from home)

We look at what this means for children, particularly if they reside with your ex- partner.
