Family law firm Makin Dixon has appointed solicitors Jennifer Stroud and Natalie Gibson to head its new Huddersfield office.
The opening of the new branch at Queen Street brings the total number of Makin Dixon offices to seven. Others include ones in Halifax, Bradford and Keighley.
Ms Gibson (right, top), who lives at Salendine Nook, and attended Greenhead High School, joins the firm from Holroyd & Co in Huddersfield while Ms Stroud (also pictured), who lives at Rastrick and is a former student at Whitcliffe Mount, has transferred from the firm’s Todmorden office.
Both studied law at Huddersfield University and are members of Resolution, a body of lawyers committed to resolving disputes amicably.
Makin Dixon is headed by partners Caroline Makin and Jane Campbell and covers general family law with a special emphasis on emergency protection and representation of victims of domestic violence.
