Law firm Davis Blank Furniss has appointed Brigid O’Malley as a solicitor in its Family team. Brigid will be based at the firm’s headquarters in Manchester but will also handle cases out of its Glossop office.
Her new role will see her acting on behalf of clients seeking advice and assistance in relation to family matters including divorce, civil partnership dissolution, nullity, domestic abuse, financial proceedings and children proceedings. She will be working closely with Caroline Bilous – partner and head of the Family team.
Brigid studied Law at Leeds Metropolitan University (now Leeds Beckett). She graduated in 2009, and completed her LPC at the College of Law in Chester in 2010 where she gained a distinction. Brigid qualified in October 2014 and has previously worked at Bell Lamb & Joynson and Makin Dixon Solicitors. She has joined Davis Blank Furniss from WTB Solicitors.
Caroline Bilous commented: “I have previously worked with Brigid so I know she is a talented and compassionate lawyer. She brings with her some fantastic experience and a caring approach to her work which I know will benefit our clients.”
Brigid added: “Davis Blank Furniss prides itself on putting its clients first which is important to me. I have worked with Caroline before, and know we make a great team, so I was really excited at the prospect of working together again.”
