After a well-deserved nomination in the category of ‘Rising Star Under 30’, March 2023 saw our very own solicitor and director, Laura Mounsey, make it through to the final of The Stray Ferret Business Awards. We were over the moon for her, and very grateful to The Stray Ferret for recognising such a talent. 

The Stray Ferret Business Awards are a celebration of the achievements of businesses within the Harrogate district, businesses across all sectors and industries. Whilst the snow did its best and threatened to jeopardise the evening, The Stray Ferret team met the challenge head on, and ensured that the evening went without a hitch. We had such a wonderful evening. 

Here at Harrogate Family Law, we wanted to tell you a little more about Laura, and why clients continue to put their trust in us as a firm. 

From partner to director

‘Laura Mounsey is hard working and unflappable. She has an ability beyond her years.’ – Legal 500, 2022 edition

After her own parents divorced when she was in her teens, Laura has been very open about how her first-hand experience of divorce has played its part in her career choice. 

Excelling at law school, she’s continued in that vein, and her career has gone from strength to strength since joining us here at Harrogate Family Law in 2020. This has culminated in her becoming one of the firm’s directors and her input as we continue to grow will be invaluable. 

Qualities clients value

‘If you’re looking for a true professional who’ll give you the very best advice, who’ll work tirelessly and efficiently to give you the best service and show compassion and genuine empathy for your situation then I cannot recommend Laura highly enough’ – Google Reviews, March 2023

Problem solving, a desire for fairness, and a positive outlook – these are just a few of the things that both clients and our team see in Laura and her practice of family law. Her commitment to helping clients move forward, and getting the right outcome for them, is never in doubt. And this is just one of the reasons why Laura is a wonderful fit for Harrogate Family Law.
