Christmas Opening Hours

Christmas is quickly approaching, and at Elliot Mather we are starting to get in the Christmas spirit. We wanted to take the time to inform our clients of our opening hours over the Christmas period.

Our last working day of the year will be Wednesday 23rd December and we will be re-opening our offices to clients strictly by appointment only on Monday 4th January 2021. 

We appreciate that some clients may need assistance over the Christmas period. Our Legal Aid funded departments: -

  • Criminal Defence department
  • Care department
  • Family department (emergency Legal Aid cases only)

 will remain available for emergency situations whilst our offices are closed to represent individuals who require a solicitor. Please see below how you can make contact.

How to make contact with our Legal Aid teams over Christmas

Our Criminal Defence department operate a call out system, meaning that representation from our expert criminal law team can be requested at any time of the day or night.  The Police will contact a call centre who will then telephone us immediately.

If you require assistance from one of our criminal defence solicitors over the Christmas period, it is vital that you call us on:

  • Chesterfield: 07717802850

The same numbers can be used to contact our Care and Family departments in the event of an emergency.

We at Elliot Mather would like to wish you a very Merry Christmas and a happy new year. Please keep safe over the Christmas period.


Julie Page

LLP Member and Head of Department

Julie joined Elliot Mather as a Trainee Solicitor in 1992 having studied for a Law Degree at the University of East Anglia and completed her Legal Practice Course at Chester. Throughout her legal career she has worked almost exclusively within the Criminal Department at our offices in Mansfield, Matlock and now Chesterfield.

Julie has been a member of the Duty Solicitor Scheme for over 20 years and has represented hundreds of clients either detained at a police station or appearing in the Magistrates and Crown Courts across the East Midlands. She has advised and represented clients charged with everything from minor road traffic matters to extremely serious allegations including rape, drug supply and murder. Julie particularly enjoys representing young people who, for reasons often beyond their control, find themselves in the Criminal Justice System. It is here that her intervention can often have the greatest impact.

In 2017 Julie assumed the role of Managing Partner having been Deputy Managing Partner since 2013. Working closely with our Chief Operations Officer Alan Grant and our Deputy Managing Partner Natalia Delgado, she is responsible for setting the strategic aims of Elliot Mather LLP and helping to steer the Firm in the direction of those aims. This is an exciting and challenging role especially as Elliot Mather continues to grow and expand into new markets.

As part of her Management responsibilities Julie is the Firm’s Compliance Officer for Legal Practice meaning she has responsibility for the firm's risk management systems and controls. She is also our Training Principle and as such, has responsibility for overseeing the development of our Trainee Solicitors. Elliot Mather has always recognised, not only the importance, but also the strong business case for recruiting, training and retaining the lawyers of the future.
