Sandy Powell is as an Associate Solicitor.
Sandy qualified as a Solicitor in 1988 which means that she has practiced family law for 30 years.

Sandy has also been a member of the Law Society Children Panel continuously since 1992.
In this time she has represented many parents as well as children in complex cases including with social services.
Divorce Finance Specialist
In addition Sandy has been a Resolution Accredited Specialist since 2004 and her specialisms include Advanced Financial Provision.
Sandy has represented clients where there are complex financial arrangements including business assets and preserving assets. She also specialises in preparing Pre-Nuptial Agreements.
I believe that over the years I have gained a number of skills such as negotiation, which is often vital, drafting and advocacy as well as the ability to get on with and effectively represent many different types of people at difficult and often traumatic times in their lives.
Respected by fellow lawyers
Sandy is well known and respected in the Devon family law community
Sandy’s career has included time with WBW, Trowers and Hamlin (who took over Stones), Ford Simey and Dunn and Baker (where she was a Partner and Head of the Family Team). She has mostly been responsible for the supervision of other solicitors and trainees.
Sandy also trained as a mediator a number of years ago. Whilst she never achieved accreditation with the Family Mediation Council, our view is that mediation training makes everyone who does it a better lawyer. The reason is that mediation training enhances negotiation skills and gives a better understanding that there invariably two ways of viewing a problem (at least) and that the best long term solutions are rarely achieved through confrontation.
Sandy is married with grown up children.
In her spare time Sandy enjoys visits to historic places and to the theatre.
