DBF Law Adds to Family Team | Davis Blank Furniss Solicitors

Davis Blank Furniss is further strengthening its core Family department following the appointment of Kirsty Morbey as its newest assistant solicitor.

Kirsty will be primarily based in the firm’s Glossop office and has joined from Slater & Gordon where she has worked for the last three years. Prior to that, Kirsty worked at Gorvins and also at Rowlands.

She completed her LPC at the College of Law Chester in 1998 and graduated from Manchester University with a LLB. Law Degree in 1997. She also qualified as a Collaborative Lawyer in 2006 so will be working alongside Anita Shepherd – head of the Family Department – on general matters as well as Collaborative specific cases. Collaborative Law is aimed at clients who are experiencing a family breakdown but want to avoid going to Court. It differs from mediation as it provides separating couples with a greater degree of legal support as their lawyer is present at every meeting.

Kirsty said: “I’ve worked at large firms for many years but I knew for the next stage of my career I wanted to be somewhere that offered a more personal service and where I could make a real difference. I’ve also admired Davis Blank Furniss’ heritage and reputation for a while now so it’s great to now be part of the team.”

Kate Oldfield – managing partner – added; “We knew Kristy was a great fit as she shares our values of offering first client service and treating everyone who walks through the door as an individual. Her experience is second to none so she’s the perfect addition to the Family department which has continued to grow over the past year.”

Excellent experience start to finish – always very responsive to any queries and the turnaround on the property I was buying was very quick, even in the busy time leading up to stamp duty deadline. Jenny was always very helpful and went above and beyond to close on a short timescale.

Ben Armitage

“Very approachable, practical solutions to problems, but most of all very responsive which I personally think is very important because if you need help, you need it quickly, or at least to know someone is looking at it for you”.

Joanne Rowe, Finance Director, Greater Manchester Chamber

“Always able to contact, very approachable, friendly and professional”

Nives Feely, JAM Recruitment

“I believe I have been able to establish a professional working relationship with everyone I have come into contact. Importantly, I sense the relationships which have been established give me the confidence that I can make contact with Davis Blank Furniss at any time and on any matter. I would also like to express my thanks to the very impressive “gatekeepers” who work in reception, not only for making me very welcome, but also for their professionalism”

Bill Pryke, CEO, Chartered Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors

“Thank you for your efficient and friendly help throughout this process. We have had it easy but your approach has been part of that”.

Robert Amsbury (Conveyancing Client)

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank you personally for the ongoing support and assistance the firm has offered to our parents over the years. I hope also that we may be able to call on you if necessary in the future.”

Valerie Fisher (Probate Client)

“Jo always provides great service, understands our needs and delivers on her promises. Our needs are relatively simple but the complexity arises out of the volume of work and short time frames, Jo always delivers.”

Peter Fernandez, Corporate Director at Royal Bank of Scotland

“A big thank you to all who dealt with my wife’s claim… We would not hesitate to recommend Davis Blank Furniss to anyone that may be in a situation like we have been…”

Anon (Personal Injury client)

“Before putting my case in Kirsty (Morbey)’s capable hands I’ve met a couple of other solicitors. None of them listen to me as intently as Kirsty and showed me as much empathy and understanding as she did. Simultaneously she was able to look at my case from legal perspective, explain all the options and follow each of our meetings with written summary of the discussed matters (in timely manner). Her advice was invaluable and led me to successfully ending the case matter (hopeful for good). I’m forever grateful for he work and would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for reliable, knowledgeable and committed solicitor”.
