Family law specialist Julie joins Blanchards Bailey

Expanding Dorset law firm Blanchards Bailey LLP has appointed a new specialist in family law as business continues to grow.

Family Law Executive Julie Keogh has a wealth of experience in family law matters such as divorce, finance and property.

Julie, who will work out of award-winning Blanchards Bailey’s head office in Blandford, has practised exclusively as a family lawyer in Dorset since 2006.

She said: “I regularly deal with children cases including private and public law proceedings, special guardianship, adoption, child abduction, injunctions and civil partnership.

“I take great satisfaction in helping my clients through a particularly difficult time in their lives.  I am sympathetic but on the other hand remain committed to achieving the best possible result for my clients in the most cost effective way.”

Julie has extensive experience in helping clients to resolve financial matters and disputes in respect of their children following all forms of relationship breakdown.

She added: “I am committed to helping parties find solutions with regard to their finances and children as amicably as possible.

“I have a particular interest in matters involving domestic abuse and have always gone above and beyond my role as a lawyer.”

Birmingham-born Julie, who previously held family law positions at law firms in Weymouth and Poole, said her work ethos was to offer an efficient, reliable and cost effective service to clients.

Julie, who is married with two grown-up children and lives in Weymouth, joins the firm’s family law team headed by Associate Laura Martin, who said: “We are delighted to welcome Julie to Blanchards Bailey.

“She has 15 years’ experience in the sector and her skills, empathy and intimate knowledge of the law dovetail perfectly with our existing team.”

Eighty-strong Blanchards Bailey is a Legal 500 firm – making it one of the top firms in the South West – and is based in Blandford with offices in Poundbury, Shaftesbury and Weymouth.

The firm received unprecedented recognition in the UK's leading law sector directory, the Legal 500. The annual publication, The Legal 500 2019/20, mentions the firm in a record-equalling seven categories with eleven individual lawyers recommended.

Blanchards Bailey also won a hat-trick of titles at the 2019 Dorset Legal Awards: Law Firm of the Year (up to 99 employees), Company Commercial Team of the Year and Private Client Team of the Year.
