Frances Lindsay, Senior Partner
Frances Lindsay is a qualified solicitor and member of the Law Society Family Panel and Resolution (formerly Solicitors Family Law Association). She is a Resolution Mediator and Collaborative Lawyer and member of the Collaborative Family Law Group and a Member of the Institute of Arbitrators. She is also the only fully qualified Family Law Arbitrator in the Thames Valley. You can find more information about these organisations in our Useful Links section.
Prior to qualifying as a solicitor, Frances took some time to get married, have a few children and work as a software trainer in the days when computers were coal-fired. She then worked as a head hunter in the financial sector before getting a divorce. Still en-route to her legal qualification, she re-married and had a few more children. Not only does Frances have many years’ experience as a family lawyer, she also possesses first hand experience of the stress of divorce and of being a single, working parent in a tough world. And in case you think all this has put her off marriage for ever, Frances is pleased to say that she took the plunge again in June 2007. Frances did drive a sensible blue Mini Cooper S but now has something a little more sporty.
Piers Clifton, Partner
Piers has more than 45 years experience in property law, wills, probate and other private family matters. Piers drives a rather elegant grey VW golf although we are trying to convert him.
Sadie Glover, Partner
Sadie (formerly Sumpter) is a partner of the firm and is a member of the Family Law Panel and Resolution. She specialises in all aspects of family law, with a particular emphasis on matters relating to children. Sadie adopts a practical and down to earth approach in respect of all of her cases and is committed to the practice of the Resolution Code of Conduct. A mother of two, Sadie drives a Silver Peugeot 306.
Carol Cox, Support
Carol is Frances’ PA and as Keeper of the Diary is the go-to person for details of her whereabouts, now and in the future. A well established member of our team, nothing much surprises her any more. Carol drives a Renault Clio – but then someone has to.
Karen Goggin, Support
Karen is Piers’ PA. She has years of experience as a legal secretary and is our fully qualified first-aider, so paper cuts are swiftly treated with care and compassion (and a sweetie, if you whine enough). Karen does drive to work but you can never be sure in what.
Adrienne Boyd, Support
Adrienne is Sadie Glover’s PA, and both keeps her under control and her desk immaculate. She buzzes around in a little white car which is just as often to be seen here as it is in Beaconsfield.
Sheila Hind, Receptionist
Sheila is our Receptionist. If you come to see us at any time during the day Sheila will be here to greet you with her warm friendly manner. She came to us on a temporary contract but we just couldn’t let her go. And to top it all, she drives a mini!
Hardeep is a Solicitor with over 10 years of experience in Property Law. She is very organised and approachable. A mother of two, Hardeep does not drive a mini!
