Tees-based Macks Solicitors has strengthened its successful family law team with the addition of vastly experienced chartered legal executive Karen Young.
Karen, 52, has spent her entire 33-year career to date with what is now Newtons in Darlington.
Karen met Macks founder and managing director Nick Mack when he worked alongside her as a young solicitor in Darlington 25 years ago.
Elizabeth Gallagher, head of Macks’ Family Law department, said: “Karen has huge experience across a broad range of areas and she gives our already formidable team more strength and depth.”
Karen, who is secretary of the North Yorkshire Centre Caravan Club, is married to Network Rail worker David. The couple have a 21-year-old daughter, Chloe, and a Cavalier King Charles puppy.
She joins Elizabeth and Family Law solicitor and Amanda Adeola at the firm’s offices at Peel Court, St Cuthberts Way, Darlington.
The team acts for clients throughout the country and even overseas, as long as they come within the jurisdiction of the law of England and Wales.
Macks also has offices in Middlesbrough and Redcar. As well as Family Law, the firm has Personal Injury, Wills and Probate, Employment and Conveyancing departments.
