It is with deep sadness that Lawgistics announces our much loved colleague, Stephanie Strachan, unexpectedly passed away on Monday morning, 14th December 2020. She had been admitted to hospital with breathing difficulties followed by heart failure.

Stephanie joined Lawgistics in March 2015, having completed a Law Degree (LLB Hons) at the University of Hull. From Hull, she progressed to City University where she gained high praise while training to become a barrister. It was a combination of Stephanie’s pro bono work in Hull’s Legal Advice Centre, followed by her training in advocacy, that stimulated in her a keen interest in criminal defence work, leading to employment with a London firm of solicitors handling criminal cases.

In time, Stephanie sought to expand her knowledge and experience by joining the Citizens’ Advice Bureau, first as an adviser then as supervisor. This enabled her to develop a broad understanding of Trading Standards, Employment and Consumer Protection Law, as it affected the consumer, retailer and employer.

This prior work history made Stephanie an ideal fit for Lawgistics. She quickly established a reputation as a hard-working, thorough, professional colleague, who was popular with clients, as they appreciated her straightforward, clear advice and help. While Stephanie always was able to tailor her advice to match the client’s needs, she never compromised or flinched from difficult issues, and was able to distil complex matters into palatable and easily understood advice.

As a colleague, Stephanie was simply a delight to work with. She was never fazed or negative, even during the present crisis, and always willing to take on more than her fair workload. We all shared Stephanie’s joy when she married Jamie, and this was equalled with the births of their daughter and son, Pippa and Myles. 

All at Lawgistics will greatly miss her warmth, infectious smile, laughter and wise counsel.
