A SOLICITORS firm has rung the changes with a series of promotions and a high-profile appointment.

QualitySolicitors Parkinson Wright, who have offices in Worcester, Evesham and Droitwich, has promoted three solicitors to partner and appointed the founder of their specialist Domestic Abuse Unit as its new head.

Suzanne Oldnall has been appointed head of the domestic abuse team and she has more than 25 years' experience in family law.

Her team specialises in cases of domestic abuse and provides a support which goes beyond simply assisting once a case has been brought.

In April the unit dealt with 15 injunctions.

It is supported by West Mercia Women’s Aid, Worcestershire Forum against Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence and the Stonham Group who regularly attend the Drop In Centre with victims of Domestic Abuse.

Other appointments include Richard Green to employment partner, Karen Billington appointed as wills and probate partner, and Emma Roberts who has been promoted to family law partner.

Cyril Arridge, managing partner at QualitySolicitors Parkinson Wright, said: “These promotions are well-deserved and represent continual growth within the firm. Our domestic abuse unit especially has earned a very strong reputation.”
