Marilyn Armstrong


Practice Manager and COFA for the practice

T: 0191 232 0283

Marilyn has qualifications in both business management and legal accounting and has acquired vast experience during her long career working in both small and large law firms. 

Before joining SRF she worked for one of the largest law firms in the North East and was project co-ordinator for their move into one of the most prestiges buildings in Newcastle.  She has steered both this firm and previous firms into achieving and maintaining the Law Society Lexcel Quality award.

"I consider myself lucky to have enjoyed my work over the years.  I love the variation it brings but have always maintained a special interest in accounts work.  As anyone will tell you I am a stickler for accuracy and like things done right.  My priority at the end of the day is safeguarding the interests of the client and supporting the fee earners in their efforts to provide the best quality service to the clients."

I love spending time with my family and have a caravan on the Yorkshire coast where we spend most weekends and holidays.  There are some lovely walks along the cliff tops and beaches.  We eat more fish when we are there because it always seems much fresher than at home.  Our special treat is lobster freshly caught, cooked and prepared by the local fishmonger.  My main love is and always has been reading and, although I thought I would never change, now have a kindle.  This means I can buy a new book anytime I want and its marvellous.
