Experienced Emma joins Pearson team

Date published: 24 July 2019

Pearson have strengthened their Family team this summer with the appointment of solicitor Emma Kendall.

A solicitor with 10 years’ experience, Emma will be specialising in divorce and all aspects of matrimonial law with a resolution friendly approach to clients, as well as considering closely the financial implications of divorce for her clients moving forwards.

Commenting on her new role, Emma said: “I have always been interested in family law.

"Every day is different and it makes a difference to people’s lives – helping them when they are at the lowest ebb.

“I really am focussed on achieving the best result for my client but ensuring that it is dealt with in a respectful way and having worked in Oldham I always admired the way Pearson worked and wanting a new challenge it seemed the perfect opportunity to grow an expanding department.”

She joins a team of eight in the family department at Pearson Solicitors and Financial Advisers, alongside specialist childcare and child proceedings solicitors and other divorce lawyers. 

The Oldham-based firm, with offices also in Tameside and Hollinwood, also has in house financial advisers who work alongside the family team advising clients on pensions, as well as conveyancers and a Will team to help guide clients holistically through the divorce process.

In the majority of cases there will be financial matters which will need to be resolved following divorce.

For example, the matrimonial assets such as the marital home and other property, pensions and business interests may need to be re-distributed between the parties and consideration given to claims for maintenance.

Welcoming her to the firm, Practice Manager Joanne Ormston said: “Emma is a well-qualified and very professional solicitor and great addition to our team. 

"She brings with her not only experience, but a very kind, gentle and welcoming presence, something essential when working in the field of family law and is able to put clients at their ease.”
