Greater legal support for Wiltshire's extensive community of military families has been made possible by the appointment of Mark Hood to the growing family law team at Goughs Solicitors.
Mark Hood will be based at the firm’s Trowbridge office, working across a range of family matters including divorce and separation, financial matters, injunctions and arrangements for children.
With an impressive military career already under his belt, Mark will also become a key member of the firm’s Armed Forces sector which actively looks to support and advise members of the armed forces community.
With an understanding that military lives can be even more complicated than civilian, Goughs is a signatory to the Armed Forces Corporate Covenant committing to supporting those in the field.
“I am grateful to be joining such a well-established law firm with a large family team and a sterling reputation," said Mark.
"Having spent 20 years in the military, often travelling the world, I can’t think of a better place to be situated, enabling me to spend more time with my family whilst embarking on this new and exciting career.
"The opportunities at Goughs to develop your career and your role within the firm are unmatched.
"Great emphasis has been placed not only on recruitment, but also on the firm’s strategic direction and overall vision which is really exciting for everyone involved.”
Richard Bebb, partner in the family department and head of the armed forces sector, said:
"We are delighted to welcome Mark to Goughs and I am certain that with his extensive range of experience he will become a great asset not only to the firm, the family department and the armed forces sector, but to the local community as a whole."
