When family relationships break down, everyone suffers. You may feel vulnerable and that the situation is out of your control.

Specialist legal help is needed to resolve complex problems that arise in relation to divorce, separation, children and other family issues. Important decisions may be made which will affect you and your family for years to come.

We can help you stay in control of the next chapter of your life.

Our team are available face to face, or via video consultation, so we can help you, wherever you live.

Resolving the problem

Many people would prefer to resolve family problems round a table with their partner, instead of using the Court process.

We are skilled in a variety of dispute resolution techniques, including mediation.  By encouraging discussion we aim to help you resolve issues through negotiation.  If, however, court action is necessary we have the experience and conviction to ensure your interests are best represented.

With this range of techniques, we aim to resolve problems more quickly, amicably and at both a lower financial and emotional cost.  Whichever approach is adopted, our dedicated and skilled family law team will guide you through the process, providing a professional service in the most cost effective way, whilst preserving relationships whenever possible.
