About Theresa Wright.
My approach towards cases is that I provide an excellent level of service throughout the case, and I pride myself on the successful outcomes of my cases.
Within the legal sector, your client is the most important person and I strive to manage their expectations, not mislead them and always put their needs first.
From a young age, I have been interested in working in the legal sector. From GCSE to A-Levels, I studied subjects that I believed would assist in helping me become a good lawyer.
After studying law at university, and being intrigued about the vast areas of law, I started to look to further my legal education and also start working in a firm.
For over 3 years, I practiced personal injury as a paralegal and trainee solicitor at a local firm in Dorking.
As much as personal injury is interesting, and an area of law I will continue to practice in, I wanted further practical experience within other areas of law. That’s why I was originally seconded to Britton and Time Solicitors where I completed my training contract and qualified as a specialist family law solicitor.
Theresa holds a 2:1 degree in law from Buckinghamshire New University. She later completed her masters in 2017 at Buckinghamshire New University and obtained a distinction.
Theresa went on to complete her LPC at the University of Law in 2019, before completing her training contract and specialising predominantly in family law, but also wills, probate, and personal injury. She was admitted as a solicitor in 2021.
Theresa is a Resolution member and has been appointed as an advisory board member for Safe Lives.
Theresa’s legal areas.
Theresa has led several multi-million pound divorce cases involving complex property and business arrangements.
She was pivotal in managing a highly sensitive case involving cross-jurisdictional international child arrangements, and is an expert in matters of parental responsibility for same sex couples.
Theresa’s experience in child law has extended to restorative rights in compelling the reinstatement of contact with estranged family members, and conversely the ordered removal of contact over safety concerns.
With regard to financial settlements, she has notably successfully negotiated the exclusion of an inheritance in the settlement of a long marriage on behalf of her client, despite its initial consideration as a marital asset.
Most recently, Theresa has led a team acting on multiple international divorce cases involving multi-jurisdictional settlements and cross-generation family interests in Hong Kong, where split assets have been pulled into consideration as marital assets.
Reviews of Theresa.
"Would not hesitate to recommend"
We have had a positive experience in dealing with Britton and Time solicitors. Theresa Wright, who we dealt with in completing our wills was friendly and professional and dealt with everything promptly.
"Such personal integrity is rare to find"
Met with Theresa to discuss a legal issue and I found the whole team to be exemplary, attentive, practical and human. If I ever have a legal issue Britton Time will be the only place I go. Thank you for seeing me so quickly and for your advice and meaningful support.
I would like to thank Theresa for all her help with my documents, she was the most thorough solicitor I have ever dealt with and, again, was a pleasure to deal with.
