David Bannister

Family Law Executive

With over 40 years of legal expertise, David is a hugely experienced Family Lawyer with an incredible reputation across Northwich and throughout Cheshire.

Joining Susan Howarth & Company in 2022, David brings over 20 years of Family Law specialism, having developed particular expertise in the area of financial remedy claims. His calm and reassuring manner helps put clients at ease and David has quickly become a valued and much-liked member of the Family Law team.

David has a clear passion for his work and being in a position to help people through what it often one of life’s major challenges, the breakdown of a close personal relationship, is incredibly important to him – something that, interestingly and genuinely, is a very common sentiment throughout our Family Law team.

Outside work, David enjoys fishing, sports and aviation as well as a good clifftop walk with his partner and two shorkies, Bella and Bertie. His guilty pleasure is a cheeky crispy crème donut but he ‘always avoids a lamb roast’ (there must be a story there!).

Something you didn’t know: as a 16-year old, David once interviewed at British Airways and subsequently found himself on a flight with 6 England players – super cool one might think, but not so for young David – as most were Manchester United players and David is a lifelong City supporter, he was pretty unimpressed by all accounts!!
