Devon Resolution Conference 2016
I am the Chair of the Devon Region of Resolution. We have a membership of around 160 family law solicitors in Devon and a vibrant committee of a dozen solicitors drawn from different practices around the county.
Last year we changed the format of our main meeting and held our first day conference. The day was a brilliant success. We had about 120 attend and were able to add a few new faces to the committee.
This year we are doing the same, but better!
