I have been practicing Family Law since 2016, prior to qualifying as a Solicitor in 2018. Going through a separation can be one of the worst experiences in someone’s life and I know separation can be a very daunting prospect. I feel extremely passionate and committed to ensuring that the process is made as straightforward as possible for my clients, by delivering firm and clear advice, whilst trying to achieve a swift and fair settlement.
Over the years, I have developed a strong ability to empathise with my clients and pride myself of being warm and approachable to all. Positive mental health is really important to me and I will always encourage clients to seek additional support if required.

"Goughs Solicitors provide a friendly, professional and extremely reassuring service. The whole team, especially Georgina Catlin, are empathetic and provide sound advice when required, you definitely feel you are in safe hands. I couldn’t recommend Goughs highly enough and, even though I’ve moved away from the area I wouldn’t hesitate to come to Goughs again if I need any legal support in the future."
"After needing some family legal advice at short notice Georgina Catlin came to my aid. Georgina was incredibly informative, friendly and answered all the questions I had. Fantastic service, thank you."
"Thank you so much, you’ve kept me strong through these horrible times. I'm happy with everything. I can’t thank you enough you're worth your weight in gold and more."
"Georgina came to my rescue during a really difficult time in my life. She has guided me through, providing legal advice which has had a really positive impact and has been so reassuring in everything she has done. As I am getting to the end of this legal journey, I’m so lucky to have had Georgina supporting me."
"You have been outstandingly supportive and efficient throughout this process - making what could have been a highly stressful situation quite manageable. "
I am extremely proud of the fact I was able to qualify as a Solicitor whilst also working full time in the legal sector over the course of four years. This provided me with invaluable experience in order to carry out my current job.
One of my greatest professional achievements is being ranked as a key lawyer in the 2024 Legal 500 Directory and receiving this quote: “Georgina Catlin is a fantastic solicitor. She cares deeply about her cases and takes special care to ensure she is doing everything she can for her clients. Her briefs are always timeous and well-prepared. I am always happy to see a brief from Georgina.”
I also enjoy taking part in Goughs regular events to support our Charity of the Year. I have been heavily involved in the selection process for the firm’s Charity of the Year. We carry out regular exercising challenges in teams across the Firm, with a primary focus on being outdoors and keeping active, something I feel is really important for a healthy life and mind.
In my spare time, I regularly go on long walks exploring the surrounding villages in Wiltshire with my Hungarian Vizsla, Bella.
I am supported by Clare Swift, who provides excellent emotional support to clients if I am not available. She can be contacted via email@example.com.
Since joining Goughs in 2019, I have flourished as a Solicitor. I have all the support I need from a large Family Department in order to provide an excellent service to my clients, whilst also ensuring I have a great work/life balance. We have an extremely supportive and open culture at Goughs which enables me to say that I love not only my job but my workplace.
