Solicitors who work at Warner Goodman

  • Sarah Brooks

    Before joining Warner Goodman, Sarah started out life as a jockey. But having raced against the likes of Lester Piggott and Willie Carson (and lost), she decided to hang up her reins and embark on a legal career. Sarah now has 27 years experience in the law and has a broad knowledge of many fields. Having gained experience in criminal law, civil litigation and probate, Sarah decided to specialise in the world of property – now heading up Warner Goodman’s Conveyancing Team. She qualified as a Legal Executive in 2001 and became Business Head of the Residential Conveyancing Department in 2009. In 2011 she became a Partner. Sarah is passionate about the work she does, especially her relationships with clients and her professional colleagues, and takes great pride in her Residential Conveyancing department and the exceptional reputation they have gained. Outside of work Sarah enjoys horse riding and long country walks with her dog.

  • Kevin Horn

    Kevin graduated in Law in 1989 and joined Warner Goodman in September 1990. He became an Associate in 1998 and a Partner in 2000. Kevin spent 25 years dealing with all aspects of family law with a particular emphasis on children related work but in 2016 he decided on a change of career and joined the Private Client team where he hopes to spend the rest of his working life. Away from the office Kevin is a lifelong and passionate supporter of the sleeping giants that are ‘the mighty Blues’, (Portsmouth FC for the uninitiated), and looks forward to a change in their fortunes and a second spell in the Premiership.

  • Ed Voller

    Ed is the firm’s Managing Partner – a full time management role within Warner Goodman LLP where he will be able to use his people skills and business knowledge to assist in the continuing development of the firm. After acting for injured claimants for over 30 years, as of June 2015, Ed ‘hung up his boots’ as an injury lawyer in order to work alongside the firm’s retiring managing partner. During his 30 years he helped thousands of people claim compensation following serious injuries, road traffic accidents, accidents at work and many more who have been able to rebuild their lives due to the important financial support received. Ed is no stranger to management roles, for many years he has been a member of the firm’s Business Team and, before that, he was a member of the firm’s Management Team, Partner In Charge of our large Southampton Office, Litigation Business Head and Marketing Partner. Ed was born and raised in South London (the accent still gets through!) and trained in Gray’s Inn, London, spending the first seven years of his legal career there. Ed joined Warner Goodman in 1987 and has been a Partner in the firm since 1989. Outside of work, he is a singer/songwriter and writes original descriptive labels for a commercial craft ale brewer.

  • Jane Cox

    Jane began in 2004 as an Assistant Solicitor in the Private Client department before being promoted to Associate status in 2007, and then appointed Partner in 2013. Jane graduated from Plymouth University with a 2:1(Honours) degree. She went on to complete her Legal Practice Course at the College of Law in Guildford and obtained a Distinction. Jane completed her training with a firm in Kent aptly called Warners and then spent her first year as newly qualified Solicitor in the firm Lamport Bassett. Jane works part time and the remainder of her time is spent looking after her children, walking her Labrador, Bess and trying to fit in some time to relax with her husband Mark.

  • William Ware

    After leaving Rugby school William moved south to Southampton University. He graduated from Southampton with an LLB degree in Law. After sitting the Law exams at Guildford College of Law, he joined Warner Goodman in 1982. William has had the unique experience of working at all the firm’s offices at various times in his career with the firm. During that time he has gained an invaluable insight into working at the firm and the preferences of the firm’s clients. Although he now specialises in Inheritance Tax planning Wills and Trusts, he has had considerable experience in litigation. He enjoys gardening, collecting and restoring antiquated machinery (including a 20 year old Bentley), and also pottering on the Solent in various small craft. When not attempting to be a “new man” interactive parent – he is an armchair enthusiast of Formula 1 motor racing.
