Our friendly, approachable and experienced family lawyers have a long history of specialisation in the settlement of divorce, cohabitation and financial disputes including disputes concerning children.

Our family lawyers are members of the “Law Society Family Law Panel” and “Resolution”.
The breakdown of a relationship is always an unhappy and painful experience and a time when people feel uncertain and vulnerable. It’s also a time when people make rash and poor decisions concerning their finances and the arrangements to be made for their children and when they don’t think through the long term consequences of their decisions.
It’s a time when you need to speak to someone with experience to help you understand and explain your options and guide you towards making sensible informed decisions to ensure you and your family’s future security.
We make no charge for an initial consultation - should you require further assistance beyond this we will make clear to you what the cost consequences are and will help you tailor the cost of your legal representation to what you can afford to pay.
We will explain in clear and simple terms (without any legal jargon) your options and how best to resolve your differences with your former partner, as fairly and amicably as possible so that you can move on to a certain and secure future.
