Since training at Stowe Family Law, I have specialised in family law for over 20 years. In that time, I have worked on a diverse range of cases including high-net worth divorce cases and those involving children disputes. I am noted for my first-class client care and supportive approach.
She is an experienced solicitor who has specialised in family law for 19 years. Well versed in all aspects of family law, she has worked on high net worth cases, ancillary relief and proceedings involving children. She is also a member of Resolution.
Training & employment experience
She gained a First Class Honours degree from Sheffield University before earning a Master’s degree in Law from Queens’ College, Cambridge. Kate trained under Stowe Family Law’s founder Marilyn Stowe and has worked in Leeds and Harrogate since she qualified in October 1995.
Outside of work
Kate does work for various charities. She also enjoys swimming and singing when she’s not looking after her two children.
Exceptionally professional dealing with a very challenging and emotional chapter of my life, my divorce. Stowe Family Law stepped in when my original solicitor was not providing the level of service I was looking for and swiftly got me back on track and to a prompt conclusion.
Client: Mr H
I can’t thank them all enough. Very professional and extremely helpful and polite. Family matters can be some of the most difficult to deal with due to the emotions involved. Liz and Kate provided not only a most outstanding service going above and beyond but were also extremely supportive. Very patient and willing to answer so many questions I had. I can’t thank them enough. Truly an asset to the Stowe team. Thank you.

Kate Sarsfield represented me through my divorce and I am very grateful for her support, understanding, focus and efficiency throughout the whole process. I felt that she readily made herself available and was very quick to respond to everything, keeping me on track and securing what I believe was the best possible outcome given the circumstances. I would highly recommend her. I would also like to mention how exceptionally pleasant all of the staff were when I had reason to call in.

I would like to thank Kate Sarsfield, QC Katherine Dunseath and Gill Bridger for all the hard work and immense support they have all given me over the past six months. Stowe handled my divorce in 2013 to 2015 and then a capital settlement plus lifetime maintenance for our down syndrome daughter five years later. It has been an extremely emotional and stressful experience for myself and our two special needs children. I cannot thank the Stowe team enough for their professionalism, quality advice, empathy and wonderful support. We fought a very hard battle and won! I will always recommend Stowe Family Law.
Client: Ms G
When faced with the emotional process of a family break up and everything that that brings I was some what daunted by the thought of instructing a solicitor who would be both emotionally understanding and fiercely determined when it came to my situation. Stowe family law came highly recommended to me, in particular, Kate Sarsfield was the name that kept on being mentioned. From the moment I met her I knew she would guide me through it step by step explaining everything to me in language I could understand whilst being fearless, standing her ground and making sure I got the result I wanted. Both Kate and the team at Stowe made the whole process a lot easier to go through. Thank you.
Client: Mrs P
My experience with Stowe Family Law was with Kate Sarsfield. I have nothing but praise for her. I was highly impressed with her availability and prompt responses to my queries. I found her to be exceptionally efficient in keeping the momentum, and coming up with a solution to any situation that she faced. She was so supportive and approachable through what had been an extremely difficult time, and always provided me with sound professional advice. From start to finish, it has been such a pleasure. Kate helped me achieve the best possible outcome, and I really cannot recommended her highly enough. Thank you Kate! The whole firm from the accounts department to the front staff team, were lovely too.

Kate Sarsfield has dealt with my divorce procedure and I would definitely recommend her. She achieved an excellent outcome for me; very professionally coping with the case whilst managing to be kind and caring all the way through. She has an excellent eye for detail and is very quick at assessing the situation and potential future problems. I found the experience empowering because I had her support throughout. I am no longer concerned about my future thanks to all her hard work.
