“Joining SFL is the best decision I ever made. Great colleagues/ambitious firm with a vision/challenging work/quality clients.” (Jason, Senior Solicitor Hale)

“The great thing about Stowe Family Law is the positive energy you get from your colleagues, across every office.  Everyone wants to make Stowe a successful law firm, and it makes it easier for you to work hard when your peers are doing the same.  We are actively encouraged to attend the latest seminars and training, and our work is varied and challenging, covering issues not only in the UK but also abroad.  As we continue to grow as a firm, there are many opportunities to work across the country and to climb the career ladder” (Victoria, Solicitor Esher)

I have been working as a Personal Assistant at the Winchester Office now for just over a year, and I can honestly say this is the happiest job I have been in.

The team at Stowe are so friendly and you can approach them with any questions you may have and know that you will always be helped. We also often get treated, for example, at Easter we were sent Hotel Chocolate Easter Bunnies, which was my highlight of the year!

I would highly recommend working for Stowe. We spend more time at work then we do sometimes with our family and friends, so to have a nice environment to work in with generally nice people makes working a pleasure. (Maddie, PA/Legal secretary Winchester)

I enjoy working at SFL because I feel part of an incredibly supportive team that will enable me to further my career, with genuine opportunities for onward progression and rewards. At the same time, the firm appreciates the importance of having a good work life balance. The firm cares about its staff and we are striving to create a happy working environment. Our niche practice area means there is a wealth of knowledge and support and always someone to turn to and brainstorm with. (Rachel, Managing Partner Leeds)
