I qualified as a Solicitor in October 2016 and previously worked at a firm in Plymouth before moving to Bath. I joined Goughs in January 2020 and was promoted to Associate in April 2021 then Senior Associate in April 2023. I am a member of the Family Law Panel and I am experienced in dealing with all areas of family law including disputes involving children, divorce, separation, finances, and cohabitation.
I have frequently assisted clients with Non-Molestation Orders and Occupation Orders. I regularly attend court in relation to disputes involving children and domestic abuse issues to represent clients. These are areas that I have a particular interest in. I also have close links with domestic abuse organisations in the local area and am a member of The Family Law Panel’s Green Phone Scheme initiative.
I am a Resolution member and an active member of YRes. Resolution promotes trying to resolve matters in a constructive and non-confrontational way. I pride myself on encouraging parties, where possible, to resolve matters in an amicable way and to put the needs of any children first to ensure they make positive decisions.

I regularly act on cases involving:
"Alice has been a great help to me and my family during a difficult and stressful time. Her understanding and professional handling of our situation led to a fast and effective resolution to much relief. I would highly recommend Alice for family matters."
"Alice was outstanding and has been so kind and compassionate with everything that has come along in the last year and also in having to deal with the other party who was very difficult."
"Thank you Alice Blackmore for your fantastic professional support, with care, compassion, and kindness, of our need for explanation and understanding of the system and language in a lot of correspondence.
Thank you too for being always being honest and empathic of our feelings, when we needed to understand such a minefield of law, and on occasions when we needed to express how we felt, during some very difficult moments.
It will be our pleasure to recommend you and your services through Gough’s Solicitor."
"Kind and friendly and so professional. Dealt with matters quickly. Couldn’t have asked for a better service"
"Can I take this opportunity to thank you for everything that you have done for me over these last few months, you always made me feel reassured whenever I spoke to you about different matters and you helped me achieve what was owed to me, so thank you so much."
I was promoted to Associate within a year of joining Goughs, of which I am very proud. I have created links with local domestic abuse charities in the area, such as Voices (Bath).
One of my greatest professional achievements is being ranked as a key lawyer in the 2024 Legal 500 Directory and receiving this quote: “Alice Blackmore is going to go far in her legal career. She is meticulous in her preparation and she provides sound advice to her clients.”
From a personal perspective, I also do a Counselling Course outside of work hours so I can provide a holistic and empathetic service to my clients who are going through a difficult time.
I am very fortunate to be supported by Julia Hudd and Sabine Hussey. Please feel free to contact them via firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
“Professional, timely responses.”
Goughs provides me with an interesting case load and a great variety of work. I have also been encouraged to develop and progress in my career. I enjoy supervising young lawyers starting out in the profession, and Goughs have provided me with an opportunity to do this whilst also maintaining a great work-life balance enabling my husband and I to explore Bath and the Wiltshire countryside.
