Judy Thornley has been practising in Port St Mary for over 21 years during which time she has built up a thriving and reputable business. Judy, who will be retiring, says, ‘My aim has been to provide a convenient, high quality and personal legal service, particularly for the southern community, although we do have clients from all over the island and abroad. I have a wonderful team of very experienced staff who have worked with me for a long time. We like to make sure clients are put at ease and made to feel welcome. It is a happy office and we have enjoyed a good relationship with many lovely clients who often return time and time again. Corlett Bolton and Judy Thornley Advocates have many synergies, from the types of legal assistance we provide to the high standard of service we aim to give to our clients. Our two practices share the same ethos when it comes to the way we do business and what we want to provide to the community. I am delighted that Corlett Bolton will be taking over my business so that my clients can continue to be provided with high quality legal services in Port St Mary.’
Judy Thornley Advocates’ staff will join the team at Corlett Bolton ensuring that clients will be able to deal with the same familiar faces.

Judy and I have been longstanding colleagues and friends, having passed the Manx bar at a similar time in the early 1990s, so I deem it a great privilege to be entrusted by Judy to look after her valued clients. We also look forward to welcoming her well respected members of staff to our team.’
