Chambers Guide to the Legal Profession

Family life can be rich and rewarding, and for most people it’s the most important thing in the world. Yet it’s not without its unexpected problems, and there might be times when you need practical help to deal with the difficulties and emerge into a brighter future.

Our help begins with a consultation and the first 30 minutes are free.

Whatever’s on your mind, come and talk to someone from our family law team.  In your first meeting the first half hour is completely free of charge, and the advice could be invaluable.

We’ll talk to you about your situation and look at all your options. Depending on what action you might need to take, this includes possible fixed fee arrangements.

Our approach is friendly and sympathetic, and we are passionate about helping people find the happiest outcomes to different situations at every stage of family life.

Starting out . . .

If you’re thinking about getting married or living with your partner, we can help you with a pre-nuptial agreement or cohabitation agreement that gives you financial peace of mind.

Splitting up . . .

Separation and divorce are stressful and emotional experiences. We look for amicable solutions wherever possible, and help you get your life back on track.

Whatever lies ahead . . .

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