Welcome to our latest recruits

14.06.2019

Welcome to our latest recruits: Jessica Horsman, Laura Phillips, Nina Rawlings and Natalie Kralski.

Jessica, solicitor, joins the children law team from Bromleys Solicitors, and she specialises in children law, including child protection matters, and is particularly experienced in representing the interests of parents and grandparents in proceedings.  She is an accredited Children Panel member and an accredited police station representative and regularly carries out her own advocacy in court. She told us: “My new role at McAlister Family Law is both exciting and challenging, and I am thrilled to be working with lawyers who are some of the most experienced and respected in their fields of expertise.”

Laura Phillips, assistant solicitor, joins the firm from Stephensons Solicitors; she will be covering matters such as care proceedings, adoption, and residence and contact disputes. Nina Rawlings, paralegal, joins the children law team headed by Donna Roberts, a team which specialises in adoption, carrying out work on behalf of the children’s guardian, parents and local authority.  Natalie Kralski, also paralegal, joins the specialist guardian team headed by panel solicitor and partner Nick Hodson; the team represents and fights for the rights of some of the country’s most vulnerable children.

Amanda McAlister, our managing partner, said: “As a family law firm, we are passionately committed to the welfare of children and delivering the highest levels of service to those who need us, and we are careful to recruit only those whose beliefs echo this commitment. We are therefore delighted to welcome these four new recruits to the business.

“McAlister Family Law is not yet two years old, but we have experienced an overwhelming demand from those looking for a strength and depth of experience unrivalled outside of London, as a result of which, our business continues to grow exponentially.”
