Samantha Archer and Chris Sutton of K J Smith Solicitors recognised as outstanding individuals by the Legal 500

Published: 19th October 2017

On the recent results announcement, the Legal 500 - the leading independent referral guide for law firms across the UK – credited Samantha and Chris from K J Smith Solicitors specifically on its website. We are delighted that their commitment to family law has been specifically acknowledged and we send them our warmest congratulations!

The Legal 500, now in it’s 30th year, conducts extensive research into law firms in the UK annually and all law firms and individuals listed in the Legal 500 have been chosen purely on merit. Both Chris and Samantha were delighted by the recognition, Samantha commented, “Having worked at K J Smith since our set up in 2009, it has been fantastic to be involved in the firm’s growth and to see our entry into the Legal 500 after only a few years of opening. To have now been personally recommended in this year’s directory is an honour and I am delighted to have been individually recognised on behalf of the firm”.

Chris, too, was delighted with the announcement, “The listing as a next generation leading lawyer within family law in the Thames Valley was a wonderful shock. It is humbling to know that my clients, colleagues and professional peers think highly of me and it will only spur me on to do an even better job, both for my clients and in promoting a co-operative approach to resolving family law issues.”
