No family is the same, and no family problem identical.

Our solicitors are experienced tacticians, negotiators and mediation specialists who make sure they understand exactly what your situation is and how you would like it to change.

Whether it is a separation or divorce from a spouse or partner, an incidence of domestic violence, or putting in place arrangements for child contact, we are expertly placed to advise on your rights and to help bring about the best solution.

Our lawyers believe in getting you the right result as quickly, inexpensively and amicably as possible. We have collaboratively trained solicitors who are members of Resolution, a family law association which promotes a non-confrontational approach to resolving family problems. Firmly on your side, resolute in our support for you, we will guide you through the process making sure you understand what is happening every step of the way. Collaborative law puts you rather than the court process in control of your divorce.

It is not all about fixing problems, however. It is also about preventing them happening at all. We prepare pre-nuptial agreements and cohabitation agreements which aim to get all parties’ positions carefully laid out at an early stage in the relationship, reducing the risk of disputes later on.

Family Fixed Fee Appointments £150+VAT

Sometimes you just need somebody to point you in the right direction. Our Family Fixed Fee appointments allow you to discuss your case and find out what your options are before you decide whether to take further action. An initial advice appointment with one of our family lawyers is a fixed fee of just £150+VAT.
