11/02/2019 News Team

Yorkshire-based Switalskis Solicitors has appointed two former Zermansky Solicitors senior partners to lead its family department in Leeds.

Judith Glynn and Chris Preston join the Leeds office, bringing over 25 years’ experience of working in all aspects of family law. They both have significant experience in matters relating to relationship breakdown including divorce, cohabiting couples and same sex relationships. This involves advising in all aspects of financial matters including high net worth or dealing with debt issues.

Ms Glynn began her career with Zermansky Solicitors in 1981 as a trainee solicitor and became the company’s first female partner, at the age of 27. She subsequently progressed to senior partner and solicitor and head of family and wills and probate.

She advises on private client matters including financial disputes and divorce, which has included highly specialised areas such as international law surrounding child abduction, both out of and into the country. She is an expert in the procedures and protocols that are available to resolve these issues.

Meanwhile, Mr Preston specialises in high value financial and ancillary relief cases and “has a no-nonsense and empathetic approach, priding himself on providing expert legal advice in a relatable manner,” the firm stated.

The pair are both Resolution members and Ms Glynn is also an adviser on the International Child Abduction and Contact Unit panel.

John Durkan, managing director stated the pair are an “excellent fit”.

“The Leeds family law market demands a high calibre of recruit, which is exactly what we have got in Judith and Chris. These appointments further strengthen our family law offering in the region, adding to our team of 17 family lawyers across Yorkshire,” he continued.
