Law firm Davis Blank Furniss has further solidified its presence in Glossop with the redeployment of key staff from its Manchester based Personal Injury team. The news comes after the recent death of Jon Litherland who had been with the firm for over 30 years.

The newly formed team consists of Jackie Miller – a paralegal who has been at Davis Blank Furniss in Glossop for 25 years; Kate Oldfield – the firm’s managing partner – and Ashi Arora who is a legal executive with 15 years experience in the sector.

The team will continue to offer a full personal injury service which covers various claims from trips in the street to injuries at work and road traffic accidents. The firm can also carry out negligence work against doctors and dentists on behalf of clients.

Kate Oldfield, managing partner at Davis Blank Furniss, commented; ‘Our Glossop office has always been central to our offering and Jon’s passing was a personal tragedy for us all. He was a committed member of the team for many, many years so we hope this realignment of talents will build on his work and position the office well for the future.

Kate added; ‘My colleagues in Glossop are a talented bunch and I’m looking forward to working more closely with them and to help our clients in an open, honest and results driven way.’

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”.
