Thorp Parker became part of the Newtons Solicitors Group in 2014 – changing its name to Thorp Parker Newtons. Richard Parker, Paula Warburton and Martin Donnelly all still work out of the Stokesley Office and have been joined by 4 new solicitors, Sonia Hunter, David Lucas, Joanne Jackson and Oliver Hebdon. One of the benefits of merging the two businesses has meant that we are able to offer a full service firm to both businesses and individuals in Stokesley and across the region.
