About the employer

Rosalind Watchorn set up the firm in 1993 aiming to give a more personal approach to the legal problems that every person faces at some time in their lives.

The firm has gone from strength to strength, developing into a niche private client practice which deals with wills and probate; issues affecting the elderly; tax planning and trusts; and residential and commercial property work.

We now have a staff of 23 including 8 solicitors and 3 specialist paralegals – giving us expertise to deal with all aspects of our areas of work while still enabling us to retain a friendly, personal approach.

Many of our new clients come to us through word of mouth and personal recommendations which we believe speaks for itself. The firm has prospered by serving Sheffield and the surrounding areas.

We offer visits to clients in their homes who are unable to get into the office; and new clients are offered a 30 minute first meeting without commitment so that you can decide whether wish to proceed.
