Specialist Lawyer Joins Firm’s Morecambe Office

Birchall Blackburn solicitors has promoted specialist wills and probate lawyer Kristina Smith to its Morecambe team, which has offices on Victoria Street.

Kristina, 27, joined the firm in 2000 at 15 as an assistant, and worked at Birchall Blackburn through school, university and law school, before completing her training contract at the firm.

She specialises in wills and probate and is a member of the Solicitors for the Elderly, an independent group which specialises in the niche area of legal services for older and vulnerable people and their families and carers.

Cathy Maccracken, a partner at Birchall Blackburn said: “Our Morecambe office continues to grow and our clients in this area will really benefit from her expertise, as advising the elderly is a very specialist area of the law.”

Kristina said: “We have a great team here and I am looking forward to helping more people in this region.  The elderly and vulnerable often find it difficult to access legal advice and we are committed to providing access to specialists on their doorstep.”
