It's official - our Hereford office has moved premises from King Street to 41 Widemarsh Street.
We are delighted and hope that our clients will be as well - the new offices are spacious and welcoming, but losing none of the intimacy and privacy which we feel is so important to a client's experience of visiting a law firm.
The service remains the same. It is the same team of experienced solicitors - backed up by superb support staff - with specialist knowledge in almost all aspects of Family Law, Property Law (residential and commercial), Wills & Probate and Employment Law.
So please do pay us a visit - you will be guaranteed the warmest of welcomes.
We have exciting news: the Hereford office of Mortimers could soon be moving location.
Negotiations are well under way for a move to newer and larger offices within the city centre.
We can’t say too much more at the moment but we will keep you informed just as soon as we have more news.
Huge congratulations to Karen Brake and Annie Pelkola who raised just over a fantastic £2,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support by taking on the Bridgnorth Walk in May.
There was added poignancy to the charity walk for the intrepid duo, as they completed it in tribute to our dear friend and colleague Bryony Walker who passed away in the spring after a battle with cancer.
Karen and Annie, who are both based in our Bridgnorth office, completed 20 miles in six hours under almost cloudless skies – and although it was hard work, they loved it.
“It was a fantastic occasion with a great atmosphere,” said Karen after she had recovered.
“We did it with two other friends and all around the route people were giving us sweets and drinks.
“It was glorious weather, and we felt that Bryony was looking down on us - we miss her hugely but it was nice to pay tribute to her in a small way and raised some money for such a wonderful charity.”
Our Hereford office has been bolstered by the arrival of an experienced specialist in legal proceedings involving children.
Terri Mason has joined our team in Hereford after spending several years working for a major West Midlands practice.
Terri, who went to school in Hereford and lives on the county’s border with Worcestershire, gained a law degree at Glamorgan University before going on to work in London and qualifying as a lawyer.
She is now one of the region’s most experienced practitioners in Children Law and has achieved the Law Society Children’s Accreditation scheme.
Christopher Waters, senior partner of Mortimers who co-founded the firm in 1998, said he was delighted that Terri had joined the practice.
He added: “Terri brings with her a wealth of expertise and experience, and her set of skills dovetails perfectly with the legal team in our Hereford office.
"We have a powerhouse Family Law team in Hereford, even more so now that Terri has joined the department, and we are very pleased to have her on board.
“She has settled in extremely quickly and we wish her many happy years here at Mortimers.”
It is with great sadness that we report the passing of a much valued colleague and friend.
Bryony Walker, a highly respected and popular partner with Mortimers solicitors, has died after a brief illness at the age of 55. Bryony joined the firm in 2002 where she specialised in Family Law and Education Law, with particular expertise in matters relating to special educational needs.
She was also a trustee and vice chairman of the UK charity, Afasic, which helps children and young people with speech and language impairments.
Christopher Waters, senior partner of Mortimers who co-founded the firm in 1998, said Bryony would be missed hugely by all those who knew her.
“Bryony was a superb lawyer and a really wonderful person,” said Christopher.
“She was enormously principled and committed to obtaining the best possible results for her clients.
“While Bryony was an extremely tenacious lawyer who revelled in fighting her clients’ corners, she had a ready smile and an excellent and slightly wicked sense of humour.
“The team at Mortimers and the legal scene in Bridgnorth and Shropshire will be the poorer without Bryony – she will be sorely missed.
“Bryony was utterly devoted to her husband Paul and their two children, Sarah and Henry.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with them and all their family and friends.”
