Gail Cook

Chartered Legal Executive

I have worked at the firm three times all together, from its beginnings as Yates and Co, moving on to becoming part of QualitySolicitors

I have over thirty years experience in family law, although I don’t look old enough for that to be possible!  I have worked at a number of firms in Nottingham City Centre, practising all aspects of family law including divorce, relationship breakdown generally, financial disputes, property disputes between couples living together, disputes about children, grandparents’ disputes about their grandchildren, domestic violence, living together agreements and pre-marital agreements, to name the main aspects of family law.

I believe in looking after my clients and giving them an honest, down to earth service.  I feel I am approachable and understanding of the issues that arise for people when relationships break down, as well as assisting in planning for that eventuality before they embark upon a relationship or marriage.  A lot of my clients have followed me to the various firms I have worked for.  I always return to Yates and Co, however, as they have the same values and outlook as myself when it comes to assisting clients and the way in which we do so.  Basically, they can’t get rid of me!

As well as enjoying my job immensely and getting a huge sense of satisfaction from helping my clients, I have a busy social life which revolves around spending time with my friends and family and taking an active interest in many sports including football, cricket, rugby league, darts and snooker – watching not participating...
