A New Year, a New Journey – looking forwards to 2013
Now is the time of year to make plans and New Years resolutions. I’ve just taken the first step on my new journey, by handing in my notice today to leave the Family Team at Coles Miller Solicitors in Poole, and head up a new team of family problem solvers with Kiteleys Solicitors in Bournemouth (start date by 1st April 2013, allowing for my contractual notice period).
For the avoidance of any doubt, I very much like working with all of the staff at Coles Miller and I wish them all the very best for the future. But, why then leave Coles Miller?
Well, what I want to do is develop a better and more progressive approach to family dispute resolution and I believe that joining Kiteleys provides me with the best opportunity for doing this. Whilst the quickly changing legal services industry presents many threats to the more traditional High Street Firms of Solicitors, there is also tremendous opportunity to harness IT, social media and value pricing, whilst maintaining exceptional levels of customer care. I believe that the ability for the consumer to enter a high street office as well as interface with their legal advisor via IT provides the consumer with distinct benefits and a level of service which I think national providers such as Co-Op Legal Services will struggle to achieve.
This is my dream, which I plan to make a reality. I invite you to join me on my journey, and follow my updates via this blog.
Happy New Year, One and All!
