Family Law in Preston

I have over 25 years experience in professional legal work and joined Birchall Blackburn in 2012. I specialise in all areas of family law, with a particular interest in financial issues.

Qualifications and professional achievements: I am a Chartered Fellow of the Institute of Legal Executives, qualified collaborative lawyer, member of Resolution and the Law Society Family Panel.

Personal Accreditations: Collaborative Lawyer, Resolution.

How did you end up working for a law firm? By complete chance, I got a job as a paralegal in a Solicitor’s office during a break in my studies and enjoyed it so much that I decided to pursue a career in law.

Unusual fact: I have a handbag and shoes in every colour to match every item in my wardrobe!

Reviews & testimonials:

All aspects of my divorce were made easier by being told all the information beforehand, they were always there to answer any questions I may have and I felt all my questions were answered quickly and never once thought I was being ignored by Gill. I would highly recommend using this company again

Gill's experience and knowledge really helped me work through my divorce to ensure we reached the best solution for all involved, especially the children.

The law is extremely complex and Gill made sure we had everything in place to protect me and the children in years to come.

I am very happy to put this review on Trust pilot for Birchall Blackburn Solicitors. I have just used them for my divorce and financial settlement and they were very efficient and knowledgeable. I had a bit of a fight on my hands and they dealt with it brilliantly. They kept me constantly updated. I used Gill Graveson and herself and her assistants were a pleasure to deal with. Highly recommended.

Birchall Blackburn have navigated me through a difficult Divorce and Financial Settlement, at all times giving me clear and concise options to bring the Divorce and Financial Settlement to a satisfactory conclusion. Gill Graveson and her team, acting with courtesy and professionalism throughout.

I recently completed a long and acrimonious divorce with the help of Gill Graveson and Ellen Woodward from the Preston office. I can’t speak highly enough of them and their Secretary, Carol. Throughout a very difficult process, they were professional, calm and supportive and helped me steer a sensible path in the face of extreme provocation. We reached a settlement that I was very happy with, and I was able to walk away with my dignity and integrity intact. The conveyancing for the transfer of the former matrimonial home was dealt with by the equally brilliant Samina Master, who showed professionalism, kindness and empathy. I’d like to thank all of you ladies - you kept me sane!
