Paul J Watson has been practising as a Teesside Solicitor since 1982. He was formerly a partner at Archer Parkin & Townsend of Stockton (now Archers Law Firm) before forming a partnership as Messrs. Pearson & Watson.

Paul Watson was based in Borough Road, Middlesbrough and his former partner, Geoff Pearson, was based at an office in Norton, Stockton on Tees.

The partnership was severed in 1987 and the sole practice, Paul J Watson Solicitor, was formed.

We are now pleased to be back on Borough Road (116).

Since becoming a sole practitioner, Paul Watson has dealt with high profile cases, particularly in the criminal defence and RSPCA defence areas of law.

Paul Watson holds Legal Aid Contracts in both criminal and family law, and is a member of the Law Society’s Criminal Litigation Panel.  He is also a Resolution Specialist Accredited Member – Domestic Abuse and Private Law Children and is a member of the Crime Duty Solicitor Panel.

Paul is joined in the Criminal Department by Damian Sabino, a Criminal Solicitor and Higher Court Advocate, who represents clients from police station through magistrates court to crown court.

Family Solicitors Pam Kandola and Rebecca Jackson joined the firm in 2015. Pam specialises in care and child protection cases, and is experienced in cases involving female genital mutilation. Pam is a Resolution Accredited Specialist in Domestic Abuse and Public Law Children (care proceedings, child protection etc) cases.  Rebecca’s experience lies in matrimonial and child law cases.

The firm has a dedicated and loyal administrative staff who are able to offer clients assistance in general enquiries when senior staff are engaged. The firm is managed by Gemma Watson, daughter of Paul Watson, who is a Chartered Manager and Fellow of the Chartered Managers Institute.

We have dedicated much time to helping local community groups and charities, supporting events, providing sponsorship, offering training on legal issues to both charity staff and service users, and giving work experience to less privileged youths.  You can see a sample of our work in the gallery above.

We strongly believe that companies have a duty to give back to their local community and this can be achieved even with a smaller firm like ours.  As a result, 2015-2016 saw the firm win a number of awards for its service to the community (see more on our Community page).
