A LAW firm is set to announce a strong growth, with turnover up 33 per cent year-on-year for the last four years.

Bury's, based in Balderstone, have gone from strength since owner Joanne Bury set up the firm for years ago.

And she puts the business's success on her team’s personal experience of family loss to provide a sympathetic service to bereaved people across the region.

Company director and solicitor, Joanne Bury, says: “All members of the team have been affected first-hand by the loss of loved ones to dementia, Alzheimer’s and cancer.

"We’re ordinary people affected by the same traumas as our clients, we just happen to have qualifications that can help to make their lives a little easier.

“We are happy to do anything we can do to educate the local community and to benefit carers of those who are suffering from dementia, old age or terminal illnesses.

"From attending coffee mornings or educational conferences or seminars, we have been on panels for experts for other professionals, charities and social groups/clubs all over Lancashire.

“I am newly on the board of Trustees for Blackburn with Darwen Carers Service and as stated, I have been a lecturer on the law degree and other professional qualifications at the University Centre at Blackburn College for eight years. I am very much here for my community, as my amazing late mum was.”
