Family Matters

When a relationship breaks down the emotional and practical fallout can be far-reaching. Our specialist family lawyers provide the pragmatic support needed to make the very best of a difficult situation.

Whether your concerns are based around your children, yourself or your relationship, we offer a range of family support and advice services to talk you through the options available.

Fantastic service, Lesley always showed compassion and understanding of my case and worked hard to ensure the very best outcome, she is not afraid to confront any wrong doings and is 100% trustworthy and passionate about her job.

Mr J. Family Client

They did a wonderful job helping my step daughter with changing her name, professional and very reasonable.

Mr R. Family Client

2014 was by far the worst year of my life to date. From the first time I met Lesley back in November 2013, she put me at ease and guided me exceedingly well through a very traumatic period. Thanks!!!

Mr C. Family Client

I wanted you to know how impressed I was with Alex, it is easy to say “she was just doing her job” however, I wanted you to know that I feel she is a credit to your firm.

Mrs B. Family Client

Chris Brown was absolutely brilliant in court. He is a lovely man who did his job perfectly and with style.

Mr H. Family Client

Jane is fantastic. I couldn’t have asked for anything more, nothing was too much trouble.

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 £100+VAT

Sometimes you just need somebody to point you in the right direction. Our Family Fixed Fee appointments allow you 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 £100+VAT.
