HUDDERSFIELD law firm Ridley & Hall has appointed Vicky Medd to head its mediation department and work with the family team.
Ms Medd is a solicitor with 21 years' experience of family law and specialises in divorce and financial provision. She is an accredited member of Resolution and a collaboratively-trained solicitor.
Adam Fletcher, managing partner, said “We are really pleased that Vicky has joined us. She is an experienced solicitor and family mediator, and is well known across West Yorkshire. I have every confidence that she will provide clients with a good service.”
Said Ms Medd: “I am looking forward to working with the team and welcome the opportunity to head up a new department in mediation. Family mediation is a much cheaper way of resolving disputes between divorcing or separating couples.”
She said: “Mediation tends to have better outcomes than court ordered arrangements, as it is the clients themselves who make the decisions that are best for them. In addition, I hope to guide clients through a difficult emotional time at a pace that is best for them and their situation.”
