Eleanor Lucas


Job Role at EMG

I am a Solicitor specialising in family law with a particular interest in assisting clients on private family law matters relating to children arrangements, cohabitation, separation, divorce and financial relief.

I am extremely enthusiastic and hardworking, putting clients instantly at ease and building rapport with my approachable yet professional manner. I pride myself on my sensitive and empathetic style of communication whilst maintaining a pragmatic outlook on family issues with a view to reaching a resolution as quickly and amicably as possible.

I am a member of Resolution and I am committed to resolving family issues with a non-confrontational and constructive approach. If matters cannot be agreed and proceed to court, I enjoy representing clients at court with my strong advocacy and negotiation skills.


I graduated with a first class honours degree at the University of Liverpool before gaining distinctions in both the Graduate Diploma in Law in Manchester, with a scholarship awarded as a celebration of my work ethic, and the LLM Legal Practice Course in Newcastle.

I joined EMG Solicitors in 2024 after having practised family law within the North East region for four years prior.

What do you like about working at EMG?

EMG sets itself apart from other law firms by being so forward thinking, inclusive, proactive and community-orientated which not only supports and values its clients but also its staff.  I wholeheartedly believe that I can help to make a difference to clients and the wider community by working at EMG.

Outside of EMG?

Out of the office, I love spending time with my family in my hometown in Cheshire and exploring the beautiful scenery that the North East offers. I also enjoy travelling around the world, immersing myself into a good book and keeping active, which includes playing in my local netball team and running.
