Solicitor Rachel Murphy has joined national firm Excello Law based in Ferndown, Dorset.
Murphy specialises in matters including divorce, financial matters, domestic abuse, child arrangements and pre-nuptial and cohabitation agreements,
She previously worked at Kiteleys Solicitors in Wimborne Minster and will be working closely with Excello family law partner Naomi Lelliott across Hampshire and Dorset.
Murphy commented: 'The flexibility of being a consultant lawyer within a dedicated new-model firm will allow me to work around my family. I have previously found that many of my clients wanted to meet outside of the normal 9-5, as they too have children and work. Being flexible not only works for me but makes things more workable for my clients too.'
Excello director Joanne Losty commented: 'We have enjoyed significant growth of the firm over recent years and we’re delighted to welcome Rachel to our family practice. The south coast is a strategic area for Excello in terms of expansion and we’re always pleased to hear from lawyers looking to enjoy greater freedom to build their practice with all the infrastructure and regulatory support from an established consultant model firm like Excello.'
