Awarded the accolade of Private Client & Family Law Team of the Year 2013 by the British Legal Awards for outstanding work within this sector: the family law team’s case load is more diverse than many rivals including national and City law firms.

For most people, family life is the most important thing in the world, but it doesn’t always run smoothly. That’s why it is wise to prepare for the unexpected, and to seek professional help if things ever seem to be getting out of hand.

That's why you will need the support of Devon and Cornwall's number one ranked firm - as rated by independent legal guides Chambers and The Legal 500.

We have a friendly and sympathetic team to listen to your problems and offer useful, balanced advice for your circumstances. You’ll remain our top priority and we’ll work passionately to secure the best outcome for you.

Separation and divorce is one of the most emotional times imaginable. Looking for amicable solutions wherever possible, we aim to take the pain out of a stressful event by getting your life back on track as soon as we can.

Our specialist lawyers can also steer you safely through the potential minefields of finances and pensions, wills, residence of children and adoption cases.

We’re also here to support you at the beginning of new relationships. If you’re thinking about getting married, living with your partner, or forming a civil partnership, we can help you protect your assets by a pre-nuptial agreement so your wishes are fulfilled in the event of death or separation.
