A growing South Essex-based law firm has appointed three new lawyers.

Palmers Solicitors, which has offices in Basildon, Thurrock and South Woodham Ferrers, has recently appointed solicitors Gordon Johnson, Marissa McKenzie and Siobain Moore, all of whom have joined the Basildon office.

Gordon Johnson joined the family team in August 2016. He possesses a wealth of experience in areas of law including divorce, financial remedy, complex children matters, cohabitation disputes and high-net-worth matters.

Marissa McKenzie also joined the firm in August 2016, working in the wills, trusts and probate department. She qualified in 2010 and practised family law for five and a half years before specialising in wills and probate.

Siobain Moore joined the firm in October 2016 as a further addition to the wills, trusts and probate team. She is a solicitor with experience, gained in another large regional practice, in drafting wills and lasting powers of attorney and dealing with probate and estate administration matters.

Lee McClellan, a partner at Palmers, said: ‘We are delighted to have appointed Marissa, Gordon and Siobain. All three share our commitment to providing our clients with an outstanding level of service and I know our clients will value the help which they are able to provide in their respective areas of law.

‘These appointments reflect the continuing growth of the firm and enable us to further enhance the quality legal service we provide for our clients.’
