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.”
