Nottingham family law firm recruits

Beth Sheridan

Senior Family Lawyer, Nottingham


I have over 25 years of experience across a wide range of family law matters arising from a relationship breakdown with significant experience in divorce and the accompanying financial settlements. I have also frequently represented parents, grandparents, and other family members in cases regarding child arrangements.

Specialisms

Beth is highly experienced in all areas of family law with specific focus on financial and property disputes arising from divorce and child arrangements. Her experience in financial cases spans straightforward disputes about the family home to more complex cases involving large pensions, businesses, and multiple properties. She has acted for parents, grandparents, and other family members in cases regarding child arrangements and also been involved in matters concerning a child’s religion, medical treatment, change of name and cases where a guardian has been appointed for the child. She also has experience in cohabitation disputes, domestic abuse cases and drafting family law agreements.

Beth is a member of the Law Society’s Family Law Accreditation Scheme.

Training & employment experience

Beth joined a local law firm as an office junior after her A-Levels intending to take a year out but quickly became interested in a career in the law.  She spent five years studying at night school whilst working full-time to obtain her Legal Executive qualifications and was admitted as a Chartered Legal Executive in 2000.  During her studies she was awarded the Joseph Jackson Memorial Prize in 1996 by CILEX for the most outstanding family law examination paper.  She has worked in Family Law since 1995; the last 24 years at an established North Nottinghamshire law firm before joining Stowe in 2020.
