A successful law firm has headed to Morpeth to open its latest office.

O’Neill Richmonds has opened its latest and fourth branch overall in Bridge Street.

Director Richard Twyford is running the Morpeth branch and has been joined by consultant solicitor Vernon Usher, as well as three other expert members of the team, including Caroline Merifield and Helen Donaldson.

Richard said: “This is a fantastic opportunity to provide O’Neill Richmonds’ expert services to a thriving and growing town.

“We specialise here in commercial, agricultural and residential property law, and additionally provide Wills, Powers of Attorney and estate administration. We are also developing a specialisation in education law.

“No matter what the legal issue may be, we offer a personal service to each of our clients.”

Consultant solicitor Vernon, who has lived in Morpeth most of his life, has joined the firm following more than four decades in the industry as a specialist in residential conveyancing.

Senior partner John O’Neill said: “We are delighted to be launching our fourth office in Morpeth. This is a fantastic step for the business to launch its newest operation headed by Richard with additional support from Vernon.”

The Morpeth office adds to branches in Gosforth, South Shields and Benton.
