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.
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.
Client: Mrs O
I opted for Stowe Family Law by sheer chance, and I am very pleased that I did. Such a professional service from start to finish, kind and always happy to help with any issues that I had. I dealt with Kate Sarsfield and we built a relationship where I knew I could tell her anything and everything, to which she calmed me and gave me the best advise she could, and it worked. I have already recommended Stowe and Kate to friends in the same situation as me and they too are very happy with the service.
Client: Mrs R
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 would thoroughly recommend Stowe Family Law, in particular Kate Sarsfield. Having found myself in the unfortunate position of needing a divorce lawyer early in the New Year, she acted promptly to meet and represent me. She was quick to respond and have a clear grasp of the situation, even in one instance calling me at 10pm. She was understanding and supportive and I felt safe with Stowe Family Law.
Client: Mrs W
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
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.
Client: Mrs M
Kate Sarsfield has been absolutely brilliant. She is very professional, friendly, supportive and understanding and totally cared for me and my case during one of the worst periods in my life. She dealt with my divorce and difficult child arrangements. Kate was always available to answer all my questions. Knowing that she was behind me gave me the strength and confidence to carry on. I always felt in safe hands. I would definitely and highly recommend Kate to anyone in a similar situation. I will not hesitate to ask her for help again if necessary in the future. Thank you Kate.
