Samantha Farndale

  • Solicitor
  • My partner recently attended court and had Sam as his solicitor, we can not thank her enough for everything she has done, from the very first day she was brilliant, so helpful and very understanding. My partner felt at ease, she was amazing in court and explained everything that was happening every step of the way. We felt Sam was incredibly professional and so friendly, it was such a comfort knowing she was there to guide my partner through such a unsettling situation. We would definitely recommend David Gray to a friend and would 100% use them again in the future if we ever had to.

    Sam at David Gray provided a thorough, professional and friendly service. She took the time and effort to really understand what I needed, and got the end result I was after. Really impressed.

    I'd like to take this opportunity to thank you for all of your help and advice on this. I would have come out with a lot less had I not spoken to you and I'm very grateful for your time.

    With all my heart.  Thank you for your support during my most difficult time.  Obviously your legal expertise is fantastic but the friendliness of my solicitors was priceless.

    Client testimonial about Samantha Farndale - Family

    After graduating from Northumbria University in 2013 with a Masters degree in Law I completed my training contract at a firm in Teesside focusing mainly on family and civil work.  I qualified in January 2016 and have 5 years of family law experience.

    I now focus primarily on Family Law. I am a member of Resolution, and I have a specialist accreditation in both Complex Financial Remedies, and Trusts of Land and Cohabitation Claims. I came in the top 3 of the country during the examination process.

    I also head up our Domestic Abuse Team with my colleague Gael Phillips.  We work with a team of Lawyers to liaise with domestic abuse charities to support and provide emergency advice to victims of domestic abuse.

    I am also able to advise in respect of all Private Children issues and I have experience in dealing with emergency applications, including abduction cases and Prohibited Steps Orders. I am also used to dealing with complex cases involving allegations of domestic abuse, child abuse, drug and alcohol misuse, and local authority involvement.

    I have previous experience of civil practice; therefore, I am also able to advise on Settlement and Compromise Agreements in relation to employment law.
