Ellisons Solicitors are pleased to announce the expansion of the Family Department, with the arrival of Jane Snook, Legal Executive and Lisa Dawson, family law solicitor, who has returned from maternity leave.

Lisa Dawson returned to the Colchester office from maternity leave on Monday 1st October. Lisa is a resolution specialist accredited member in Children Law and Advanced Financial Provision I.
