Penny is a solicitor who has specialised in family law since February 2020.
Penny has successfully acted for both married and non-married clients, handling a wide range of family law matters. She has negotiated financial settlements for clients and has experience with working alongside a range of other professionals to achieve client focused outcomes. Penny also has extensive experience assisting parents with child-related matters, including domestic and international child relocation. Notably, she has dealt with cases involving serious allegations of harm.
Penny understands the significance of approaching situations arising from relationship breakdown with sensitivity and aims to minimise acrimony and potential anxiety. She ensures that the well-being of the entire family is not overlooked and always prioritises the needs of any children involved. Clients consistently commend her for her compassion and care, and for going the extra mile to achieve outcomes that focus on their best interests.
As a skilled negotiator, Penny diligently seeks amicable resolutions through mediation and negotiation whenever possible. However, in cases requiring litigation, she meticulously prepares for court and collaborates with a select group of reputable barristers to reach favourable outcomes.
Outside of work, Penny finds joy in spending time with her loved ones and her mischievous yet adorable cat, Charlie. She also has a passion for travel, often exploring new countries and immersing herself in different cultures during her time away from the office.
After changing solicitors, I was given the pleasure of being represented by Penny. The difference between her and my previous solicitor (who was partner level) was unbelievable in terms of service, friendliness and professionalism. I instantly felt comfortable opening up to her. I genuinely could not have asked for a better representative to work with on such a personal and sensitive case involving my children. She has treated my case with such empathy, passion and sensitivity. I have never felt any kind of judgement, she is a very warm, kind, caring and understanding individual and has treated me with nothing but dignity and respect from the outset. She is only ever a phone call away and always makes time to speak with me, answering all my questions and taking the time to explain things to me. She made me feel like I was her only client. She is extremely thorough and has great attention to detail. She has always listened and taken everything on board and she did an amazing job with my report. Penny is very dedicated and passionate about her role and is a credit to the company. She is extremely good at what she does always going above and beyond and I think she has a great career ahead of her. Thank you Penny for all your support and hard work! I have and will recommend her to family and friends!
Penny was brilliant and explained the different options that were available regarding my name change. The entire process was completed swiftly and Penny kept me updated throughout the entire process. She is an asset to the company and we will definitely be using Herrington Carmichael again in the future. Thank you!
