Head of Our Family Department, Julie Skill, Appointed as President of Derby Law Society

We are delighted to announce that one of our LLP members, Julie Skill – who is also the head of our Family Law department – has been appointed as President of the Derby Law Society.

Julie has practised family law since 1989 and has been with the firm since she was a paralegal. She possesses a high level of expertise relating to a broad range of family matters. She advises on matters such as, pre-nuptial agreements, and if the worst happens and a relationship does fail, she handles all aspects of that relationship breakdown including issues relating to children, finances and domestic abuse in an efficient and practical manner.

Commenting on her appointment as President, Julie said: “I am extremely proud to even have been considered for the role and I am thankful for the nomination to be chosen. To have my name added to the list of such esteemed predecessors is an absolute privilege and honour. Although I am taking over the role of President at a very unique and somewhat bizarre time, I am dedicated to ensuring that I do justice to the position.”

The Derby Law Society was established in early 1886 consisting of 35 members who were committed to starting a Law Library. Since then, the Derby Law Society has experienced exponential growth and represents lawyers across the whole of Derbyshire and East Staffordshire. The society aims to support the legal profession locally by offering training, social events, and representing its members’ interest. Additionally, the Society aims to assist the public in sourcing solicitors with a particular specialism.

The team at Elliot Mather are extremely proud of Julie’s latest appointment and are sure that she will be a great success in the role.

Managing Partner, Julie Page has said: “Elliot Mather recognises the important role of the Derby Law Society and I am thrilled that Julie will be at the helm for the next 12 months. I know that Julie will approach this opportunity with the same passion and commitment that she shows to all aspects of her professional career.”
