As part of ongoing expansion plans, The Family Law Company has opened its first office in Cornwall in the heart of Truro.

This is the fourth office for the firm, which has two longstanding offices in Exeter and one in Plymouth.

The move into Cornwall began in 2021 with the appointment of director Lucy Theobald who initially flexi-worked from home and the Plymouth office. As demand for services grew, paralegal Sophie Kneebone and trainee legal Executive Shannon Fawdry were appointed to the team.

“It was a natural progression to open an office where we can welcome clients and build a real team connection,” said Theobald.

The Truro team all have roots in Cornwall. Kneebone, who joined from Coodes, is currently studying with CILEx and aims to qualify as a lawyer in 2024. Fawdry originally worked with Theobald before moving to Charles French & Co where she focussed on conveyancing. She is now back with her former Cornish mentor to concentrate on family law.

The law firm also the support of experienced family Solicitor Deborah Cahill who’s based in St Austell and works with clients on both sides of the River Tamar.
