Emily Pope

Solicitor - Divorce and Family Law

Career History

I joined Neves in September 2018 following the completion of my Law degree and LPC. Prior to this I had experienced working in a family law firm. I qualified as a Family Law solicitor on 3rd December 2020 following the successful completion of my training contract. A large proportion of my training was spent in the Family department, complimented by seats in Conveyancing and Dispute resolution.

I was delighted to qualify into the family department in December 2020 working under the supervision of Head of Department, Beth Woodward.

Recent Cases

I advise on all aspects of relationship breakdown including divorce, financial matters and making arrangements for children. I am often instructed to make urgent applications concerning children, such as where a child is withheld following contact with one parent.

Having experienced working in the matrimonial, conveyancing and dispute resolution teams, I have been able to transfer my knowledge from one department to the next and this has helped me to advise clients where there is a crossover, such as a property transfer arising from a financial order on divorce or making enforcement applications for non-compliance with court orders. 

I am a firm believer in resolution of disputes and work with my clients to seek to settle issues at an early stage where possible. 

I am a member of Resolution. (Resolution members are committed to promoting a constructive approach to family issues that considers the needs of the whole family.)

I like to stay up to date with new developments in the law and I enjoy researching new and topical issues.

What makes me human

In my spare time you will often find me in the shopping centre, out for a run (begrudgingly!), in the kitchen, and spending as much time as possible with my family and friends. I have a strange mix of hobbies - I am a keen crafter, football fan and I love a weekend break!

Emily Pope has dealt with my case from the start to conclusion. I highly recommend Emily. She is kind and understanding about the emotions of the situation. An efficient, caring family solicitor. My now ex husband told me that if he was to divorce again he would use Emily... is there a better compliment than that.
