Yvonne Horan

Yvonne Horan, a family lawyer at Thomas Horton LLP in Bromsgrove, has trained as a family mediator, one of the few practising mediators operating in the North Worcestershire area.

Mediation is a way of resolving disputes which arise as a result of a relationship breakdown, and is becoming increasingly popular as an alternative to lengthier, more costly, adversarial approaches.

Yvonne (pictured) will be able to work with families locally to help them resolve difficult practicalities which arise when a relationship breaks down. She said:

“Mediation seemed to offer a sensible and really practical way of supporting our clients, without the courts having to be the only recourse. A lot of the time it is about sorting out issues such as childcare and pick-up arrangements, or how the grandparents can maintain a relationship with their grandchildren when a marriage breaks down.”

Thomas Horton LLP has seen a marked increase in workload into the family team over recent months. The firm was recently named as a recommended provider of family legal services in the national Legal 500 directory for the third year running; recognition for the complexity of childcare and matrimonial cases it is able to handle.
