Posts from April 2019

You could say that there is no ‘normal’ day when you work for a Solicitors in Preston. I start my day around 8:30am, getting our file management system powered up, and making sure that I have my morning coffee (although sometimes I try and be healthy and opt for water – it’s just not the same!). 
 
First of all, I’ll go through all my emails and make sure that I deal with anything urgent from the evening before. Anything that requires a lengthy reply, or needs to wait until I have further information, gets flagged to be dealt with later in the day. 
 
A typical day starts with dealing with any post that has landed over the weekend. Usually, our clients pop things through the door, and we have a few replies to our previous week’s letters from banks or insurance companies. I mark everything with the date to show it has been received, and scan it all on. 
 
Once this has been dealt with, we can start responding! As Solicitors in Preston, it is important that we respond to any post as quickly as possible, and make sure that we are always one step ahead. 
Our Hope Jordan.
It’s always nice to get good feedback from a happy client, so with our expert team of Solicitors in Garstang, Solicitors in Longridge and Solicitors in Lancaster receiving more and more nice reviews and thank you gifts, we thought that we would share our successes. 
Firstly, what is vaginal mesh, and why has it been used in surgical procedures? 
 
Vaginal mesh is a form of synthetic netting that is surgically implanted into a woman’s pelvis. The procedure is used to help treat prolapsed organs, urinary incontinence and for the repairing weakened and/or damaged tissue which, for example, may be experienced following childbirth. 
 
There are different types of mesh, or tape, which can be used. Some mesh can be absorbable which, you may be surprised to note, is usually derived from processed and disinfected animal tissue. Alternatively, the mesh can be non-absorbable. This form of mesh is usually used for long term assistance, as the mesh will remain indefinitely in aiding damage that may be beyond repair. 
 
The insertion of the mesh is not a light procedure and can require patients to be hospitalised for a number of days following. As with all surgical procedures, there is an element of risk, however, recent debate has brought to light new findings on such risks, and their potential effects on patients undergoing treatment. 
Whilst some law firms like to put their trainees in one department for a set period of time and then move them to the next department for a set period of time, here at MG Legal we find it works better to combine seats so that you do not forget the processes and information you have learnt. 
 
My days are often long but they are most certainly never the same! Whilst Conveyancing can sometimes be somewhat transactional, and Family Law more emotional, it is often found that some Conveyancing transactions become frustrating: when there is a chain, affecting your client’s property transaction, and you have no control over Mrs Smith’s property sale, that is three houses down the chain to your client’s purchase, as a property solicitor who liked to be in control of literally everything, then, well, you start to understand the situation!  
 
On the other hand, Family matters are dealt with in an almost business-like manner, in cases where couples have remained quite amicable and both know what they want the outcome to be. Currently, I spend my Mondays and Thursdays within the Family Department, and the remainder of the week with the Conveyancing Department; however, these days will often be swapped if there is a Family matter in Court. 
There are so many different reasons why you may be considering working full-time, whilst studying a law degree. You may be looking to change career, or you may just enjoy work. Whatever your reasons, you will want to go into the part-time-law-degree-full-time-work part of your life as prepared as you possibly can be. 
 
So, our Hope Jordan, who is currently embarking on that very journey, has decided to share a few of the pros and cons of choosing to study that way...

Finally it’s here! That big old yellow thing is back in the sky, and suddenly the world seems a happier place; so what better way to celebrate than planning your jollies!!  
 
Gathering the kids and jumping on a plane, ready to lay on the beach with an ice cold drink and bathe in the sun. Sounds perfect doesn’t it? But, for some, it isn’t as easy as it sounds - not when there’s an ex-partner involved, and the question of whether they will even let you leave the country with your child in the first place.

You might be in need of some legal assistance, or you might be thinking of starting a career in law, or you might just be ‘asking for a friend'; but, before you start, you really do need to know the answer to this question: What is the difference between a barrister, a lawyer, and a solicitor?

Currently, the only reason for divorce are that of “irretrievable breakdown”, on the basis of one of the five grounds, which can be found here. The eagle -eyed among you will note that we highlighted back in January that change was coming, with Sir James Munby making his feelings in respect of the “blame game,” couples must play abundantly clear. 
Social Media has become an important part of most people’s daily lives. Research shows the average person spends at least 24 hours a week on social media. 
 
For many Social Media is an online diary; a way to keep your friends and family updated on your day-to-day life. However, at MG Legal, Local Lancaster Solicitors, it is not uncommon for our Family Department to receive a call from a client stating that their ex-partner has posted nasty comments or degrading photographs about them all over their social media accounts.
