Sarah has over 15 years experience representing clients involved in marital disputes. She regularly appears in courts across the country representing police officers from all ranks and backgrounds. She is a robust advocate, especially when seeking to protect a client’s police pension.
Sarah has been involved in a series of cases involving police officers, including dividing marital assets upon divorce and pre-marital agreements. She has recently represented an officer in a same sex relationship in relation to the disputed ownership of property and successfully concluded a case involving a substantial pension that was in payment. The Legal 500 2013 edition states that "Sarah Thompson at Slater and Gordon Lawyers deals with complex ancillary relief cases, and is ‘a bright lawyer with a calm approach’".
Sarah qualified as a solicitor in 1998.
In 2002, Sarah successfully trained as a Family Mediator and now heads up Slater and Gordon’s Family Mediation Service. Sarah is also a trained Collaborative Lawyer, for those clients who would prefer to deal with matters by way of agreement, rather than going to court.
Sarah moved to Philadelphia (USA) in 2003, where she worked for a city firm of attorneys. She returned to the UK in 2005 where she joined Amanda McAlister’s team at Gorvins Solicitors. She moved with the team to RJW, now Slater and Gordon Lawyers, in 2010, where she was made a partner later that same year.
Sarah joined the LLP as a member at Slater and Gordon in 2012.
