Meet the Family Team at Bevirs Law

Meet the Family team:


The Family department consists of 2 teams:  child care and matrimonial (divorce/ separation/ finance/ children).  We have 3 Partners, 3 Solicitors, 2 trainee legal executives and we are ably supported by 4 secretaries.

We are a very busy department all based in our Swindon branch at Regent Circus.  Stuart McNeil is the Senior Partner and head of the matrimonial team.  He has spent the entirety of his legal career at Bevirs Law having joined as a trainee solicitor in 1982 before becoming a Partner in 1988.  Stuart is supported by Michelle Bowyer and Heather Riley both Solicitors.

Kathryn Locke is our second longest serving department member.  She heads the care team and has worked for Bevirs Law for 16 years becoming a Partner in 2006 and she is supported by Rebecca Scammel, Partner, Claire Webb, Solicitor and Michelle Godwin and Emily Clayton who are trainee legal executives.

Between us we have 10 children and 5 grandchildren, 3 of us are vegetarians and we have a fanatical lover of guinea pigs in the team as well as a political activist and charity worker.  We are golfers, horse riders, tennis players and runners as well as practicing yoga, Pilates and meditation.

The team have a combined total of 95 years post qualification experience and share a passion for helping to guide our clients through some of their most personally challenging times and we do so with skill, compassion and empathy.

Working with you, not just for you.
