Why Choose Us?

When a marriage or relationship breaks down, it can cause distress, worry and uncertainty. In those circumstances, you need a family solicitor that can give clear, constructive and cost-effective legal advice during this difficult time.

Our expert team of family lawyers are able to provide help and assistance in all areas of family law, including divorce and relationship breakdown, advice for unmarried couples and civil partners, prenuptial and separation agreements and advice in relation to children.

We feel that this requires much more than a thorough understanding of the law: it takes empathy, understanding and clear thinking to achieve the best possible outcome.

We consider all of the options to achieve the best outcome for you. This includes attending meetings with you, corresponding with other solicitors and professionals, preparing court papers and representation in court proceedings.

We are firmly of the view that there is no substitute for personal, one-to-one advice and value the long-term relationships that we build with our clients.

We will always keep in touch with you so you know exactly what is happening and how long matters are likely to take. We will give you clear advice on the likely costs of any particular course of action, including the possibility of a fixed fee where appropriate.

To see how we can help, please call us for a free, confidential discussion with one of our team.
