Family Law firm continues expansion plans with New Year starters
Ian Walker Family Law and Mediation Solicitors have started the New Year with three new recruits joining their busy Exeter office and have further plans for expansion in 2022. Despite the pandemic the family law solicitors have experienced incredible growth and relocated their head office from Honiton to Pynes Hill in Exeter in 2020.
Lev Boreiko has joined their divorce team as Chartered Legal Executive and Associate. Lev brings with him a wealth of experience having worked in family law for over 10 years. Lev specialises in children and cohabitation disputes, divorce and injunction proceedings. He advises on complex family law issues involving family businesses, uniform pensions, and complex applications to the higher courts.
Eve Hulance and Sophie Jenkins have both joined the team as paralegals. Eve graduated with a First-Class Honours Degree in Law from Bournemouth University and has spent the past 2 years working as a commercial property paralegal. Prior to joining Ian Walker Family Law Solicitors, Sophie graduated from Loughborough University and then worked for another Exeter law firm within their Equity Release department.
Family Law solicitor and Director Ian Walker said of the new joiners “We have continued to see an influx of new enquiries over the past year, and we wanted to be able to help our clients the best we can. We continued to recruit throughout 2021 and 2022 is already showing signs of another busy year. We are delighted that Lev, Eve and Sophie have joined and know their knowledge and experience will be a huge asset to the company, helping us to continue delivering an outstanding level of personal service that our clients deserve”.
Ian Walker Family Law Solicitors have offices across the South West including Exeter, Honiton, Yeovil, Wellington and beyond. They are advocates for flexible and smart working and aim to provide the best family law service across the region through their various locations and their online capabilities.
