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.
We are delighted to announce details of a brand new free legal advice clinic for the local community that we will be running in conjunction with The Bureau. The first drop-in clinic will be on Tuesday 27th June from 9.30am to 12.30pm at The Bureau’s base on Henry Street in the town centre.
It will be led by Kirsty Morbey who is a partner at Davis Blank Furniss. Attendees will be able to ask about a number of core legal issues including family law, wills and estate planning, dispute resolution, clinical negligence, employment and property. Each appointment will last for approximately 20 minutes. Subsequent clinics will run on 25th July, 29th August, 26th September, 31st October and 28th November.
The Bureau was established in 1979 and works with the belief that all members of the community will have both support needs of their own and the capacity to support others at various times in their lives – in some cases simultaneously. Its goal is to create solutions through effective volunteer action and collaboration.
It now offers a variety of services including practical and social support, volunteering, economic wellbeing, infrastructure support and partnerships which includes working with local groups, the public sector and regional/national bodies to build strong and innovative volunteer communities.
Kirsty Morbey commented: “We are delighted to be partnering with The Bureau on this project as it does amazing work across our community. Our own aims with the new free legal clinic are to help its clients and to also inspire more local companies to volunteer their time.”
Natalie Rhodes – chief officer at The Bureau – added: “We anticipate the new drop-in clinics to be of huge benefit to our clients, many of whom are struggling with legal issues, and often a point in the right direction is all it takes to ease those worries. I am confident it will be a fantastic addition to our services and we are very grateful to the Davis Blank Furniss team.”
