Kate Stovold


Kate is an Associate in the Family Team at Trethowans.

Before joining Trethowans in June 2014, Kate trained at a regional practice in Surrey and qualified into their Family Department in September 2012.  Beforehand, Kate studied for a BA in History at the University of Leeds and then obtained an LLB from The College of Law in Guildford.

Since qualification, Kate has advised clients in relation to a range of family matters including:

  • Relationship breakdown & separation;
  • Divorce;
  • Finances, for both married and unmarried couples; and
  • Children matters.

As a member of Resolution, a national organisation of family lawyers, Kate endeavours to conduct all matters in a constructive and non-confrontational way.  She strongly believes that this alleviates tension for clients at an otherwise extremely difficult time.

Kate appreciates the importance of delivering sound advice in a sensitive yet efficient manner; this facilitating strong professional relationships with her clients.

Examples of how Kate has helped clients:

"In times of complete despair and confusion, options were explained clearly for which I was very grateful.  A comprehensive service – tissues and all.  Thank you." – Mrs B

“I am very happy with the service Kate provided.  It was a relief to have a solicitor I could trust.  She helped me to bring to a conclusion an ongoing difficult divorce.  I only wish I had used her from the onset.  I highly recommend her and the firm of Trethowans." - Mrs C

“Thanks for all your hard work and support over the last year in helping me finalise my divorce.  I would not hesitate to recommend your services to anyone in the future!” – Mr G

Kate was “very professional, practical and sensitive to the emotional impact of advice too.”  Mrs P

“The level of communication was exactly right, always prompt and courteous.  Kate quickly grasped exactly what I wanted and provided sound and successful advice.”  Mrs G

“I was very satisfied with the outcome of my case and the way you always kept me up to date and understood my objectives."  – Mr M

"Kate was always approachable and welcoming, never needing to be chased. I was 100% happy with the value for money and would certainly recommend Kate to others. Thank you." - Mr S

“I was always very grateful for the sensitivity in which matters were handled at such an emotional and stressful time for me.  I also appreciated the speed at which my queries were replied to.  Thank you.” – Mrs T

Away from the office...

Kate is a member of the Guildford Symphony Orchestra and, as well as performing, enjoys live music and the theatre.  Kate is a keen cook and enjoys inviting friends and family to test new recipes.  Kate also runs – but this is definitely for fitness and not for fun!
