Free Dispute Resolution Week in Glossop | Davis Blank Furniss

National Dispute Resolution Awareness Week is taking place from Monday 25th to Friday 29th November and HOTpod – the Collaborative Law Service for High Peak, Oldham & Tameside – is staging an event to raise the profile of the service and to show how it can help families who are experiencing a family breakdown and want to avoid going to court.

National Dispute Resolution Awareness Week is being co-ordinated by Resolution – the national family law association – and HOTpod’s drop-in event will be taking place from 4pm to 7pm on Wednesday 27th November at Va Bene in Glossop.

The event is open to anyone who is looking for some free advice from a collaborative lawyer, a mediator or support coach. HOTpod’s team of family lawyers, financial professionals and family consultants will be on hand to listen to specific queries and to share their knowledge on a no obligation and confidential basis. Attendees will also enjoy free drinks and nibbles.

HOTpod member organisations include businesses actually based in the area – including; Davis Blank Furniss, Thorneycroft Solicitors PDA Financial Planning, Absolute Specialists, Cheshire Mediation and Bakers Solicitors – as well as professionals who live locally and work for firms such as Mills & Reeve and DTE Group. A full list of members can be viewed at

Kirsty Morbey – spokesperson for HOTpod and family solicitor and collaborative lawyer at Davis Blank Furniss – said: “Collaborative Law is a new concept to many people, so the aim of staging the event is to educate and inform the community on the options that are available to them. We felt National Dispute Resolution Awareness Week was a great vehicle to do this and we’d encourage anyone who maybe going through a family breakdown to pop along for a chat with the HOTpod team.”

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”.
