The Vanguard Tale

WE ARE Vanguard

The most common complaints about Solicitors are in relation to unexpected costs, poor service with calls not being answered or returned and being slow in dealing with the job in hand. Here at Vanguard Law we want to change that.

Having worked at high street and national solicitors firms the founder of Vanguard Law Hannah Paddock felt there was a better way of providing legal advice to benefit both our clients and our team of legal professionals.

By using modern working practices and focusing on one area of law in comparison with traditional law firms we are able to offer specialist family and child law advice in the way our clients want and with a variety of payment options including legal aid for those eligible without compromising on the quality of advice or client care.

Hannah Paddock Director and Solicitor at Vanguard Law has been practising as a family and child law solicitor since 2006. In October 2018 Hannah was joined by Louise Neville an experienced family and child law solicitor. The company expanded further in 2020 with the addition of  Child Law specialist Solicitor Katharine Marshall. 2021 brought another new addition to the team with Solicitor Liz Evans returning to practice following a career break. Our Trainee Solicitor Kiera Barnes joined us in 2020 as a paralegal following completion of her law degree and Legal Practice Course. She is due to qualify in April 2023.

We are assisted by Michelle Hartley Paralegal and our legal assistants Sue, Sophie and Rachel.
