We are thrilled to announce that one year has passed since Dannielle Ford, Alice Byrnes and Kirsty Evans took ownership of Cheney Suthers, and what a year it has been!
The last 12 months have been busy to say the least, and business growth has continued steadily since April 2019. The new team started off with a bang, welcoming a throng of new clients through the doors in the second quarter of 2019. The surge of business may have set a high bar to maintain, but the firm has continued to welcome new clients and has seen existing clients use the firm for their ongoing matters such as conveyancing and estate planning.
To meet the demand of growing business, the team has expanded with more solicitors and legal assistants resulting in a total team of 12. The firm is still the districts first all-female partner law firm.
Alice Byrnes commented “Well, we almost made it without a hiccup thanks to the virus that shall not be named! But wow, what a year. The support we have received from the Orange community as well as in Sydney has been overwhelming. We are incredibly thankful. ” Alice’s practice focusses on family law, employment law and estate planning.
“I am so proud of everything we have achieved in our first year and I am thankful for our staff who have supported us, even through a global crisis!” said Dannielle Ford. Dannielle’s practice consists of criminal and traffic law, family law, wills and estates (including claims on estates) and conveyancing.
Kirsty Evans who practices in farm succession planning, corporate, commercial and property law stated “In our first year of business the wider community has been impacted by bushfires, drought and now COVID19! Despite all of this the firm continues to grow in terms of clients and our team. We are extremely grateful and look forward to giving back to our supporters for many years to come.”
