David Milburn qualified in February 2003, having already obtained an Honours Degree in law. Since that time he has specialised exclusively in family law. He joined Stowe Family Law in November 2010 and was made Managing Partner in January 2013, first at our Cheshire offices, and now Harrogate.
‘A highly astute divorce lawyer who takes charge of cases and ensures they are kept moving with purpose, ultimately delivering very satisfying conclusions’. (Legal 500)
David deals with all work relating to the breakdown of relationships and the division of the relationship finances. His particular focus is upon divorce work, the division of the matrimonial finances and cases involving high value assets – often with complex business structures or trust elements. David also specialises in cases involving farms and agriculture.
The firm’s clients rate David’s robustness and caring ethos. He is also regarded as a very proactive solicitor, who goes to great lengths to achieve the very best results for each and every client.
Away from work David is a family man, who is often found seeing to the demands of his two young children.
Former clients say:
‘The Court verdict could not have been better. David’s attention to detail was brilliant…I was not a ‘big money case’ but it’s all relative, isn’t it? These were my life savings from sheer, hard work undertaken before I had even met my ex.
Appointing Stowe Family Law was the first time that I felt ‘believed’ and justice prevailed in the verdict.’ – Former divorce client
‘I transferred my file to David Milburn at Stowe Family Law following a sluggish performance from the firm I had originally appointed. After initially speaking with David on the telephone and subsequently attending his Harrogate office a few days later, I felt reassured that he had fully understood my case and what I hoped to achieve.
Within just a few days my case began moving with purpose. Communication with me was always extremely quick and accurate. Interactions with the other side were firm but fair.
Essentially David was committed to not letting my case stall at any stage. In David Milburn we find a highly astute premier league divorce lawyer. Very highly recommended.’ – 2016 Client
