A FAMILY law solicitor with a decade of experience has set up her own business to provide a more personal service to clients.

Natalee Worthington founded Worthingtons Family Law in West Swindon earlier this month.

She specialises solely in family law and set up the company with a guiding philosophy to offer a more flexible and personal service than the average high street law firm does.

Natalee said: “As a mum to two young boys, I know that it can be difficult to juggle family life.

"My aim with Worthingtons Family Law is to be more available. It will always be me who my clients speak to - and if daytime appointments are difficult to make, I am happy to see people later on.”

Natalee grew up in Royal Wootton Bassett and began her career in law as a trainee solicitor at a local firm in 2009 before qualifying in 2011.

She quickly decided to specialise in family law and since then has been based with firms in the Swindon, Royal Wootton Bassett and Cirencester area.

She has managed a legal practice singlehandedly while the owner was on maternity leave and credits this time with giving her valuable experience that has helped in her new self-employed start-up.

Before setting up her business, she worked as an advocate for those with additional needs alongside Swindon Advocacy Movement, which better fitted with her young family.

Natalee added: “It was my experience covering maternity leave that made me realise that I really swanted to run my own business.

“By specialising in family law, I have a depth of knowledge and a real understanding of what my clients are going through, at what is often a very difficult time for them.”

Her office is based at Rombourne in Kingston House at Lydiard Fields.

Natalee’s growing caseload includes clients who are divorcing, including the resolution of their financial settlements, dealing with child arrangements, resolving disputes surrounding property for separating unmarried couples, creating pre-nuptial and cohabitation agreements, dealing with changes of surname for children, and domestic violence.
