“A well-respected firm of  Wakefield solicitors are opening a  second office next week. King Street Solicitors will open their new office on Monday October 12 on Ropergate, Pontefract.

The firm was founded in 2009 by partners Sue Wittrick and Francesca Greenfield and from the outset specialised in family, child care and wills and probate law.  

It has developed and strengthened its team over the past six years and now has four partners.  Nicola Coppinger joined the firm in 2011 and strengthened the firm’s expertise in divorce and matrimonial finance and Abby Duffy followed  in 2014 with a background in child care and education law. 

The partners have more than 66 years of legal practice experience between them;  Sue Wittrick and Francesca Greenfield are members of the Law Society’s Children Panel and both Sue Wittrick and Nicola Coppinger hold Law Society Advanced Family Panel membership.

Abby Duffy, who will be heading the Pontefract office said: “At King Street Solicitors we pride ourselves on being responsive to our clients’ needs. Our centrally- located Pontefract office will enable us to offer Pontefract-based clients a convenient point of access to our services and  complement our well-established Wakefield office.”

The newly refurbished Ropergate offices offer a friendly and welcoming environment to new and existing  clients of the firm.  Abby will be joined by solicitor Laura Scott who works across the firm’s practice areas with a particular interest in family law, wills, probate and lasting powers of attorney.  

Solicitor-advocate Francesca Greenfield, who is one of only around five per cent  of solicitors to hold her Higher Rights of Audience said:  “Having grown up in the Pontefract area, I am delighted to be opening an office in Pontefract.  It’s great to see so many thriving small businesses in Pontefract and I’m very excited to be joining them.”
