Family Law

If you could deal with a law firm that offered you objective, common sense advice with sympathetic personal support, wouldn’t that be the kind of law firm you’d choose?

Of course you would.  Our Family Team understands all the complexities of family matters and how they affect any children you may have, so our advice is tailor-made to fit all your individual requirements.

Using tact and diplomacy, we take the time to listen to you and understand your unique circumstances, handling your case with sensitivity and care.  We will explain your options clearly and concisely and then work hard to provide the best outcome for you, as smoothly and speedily as possible.

As well as being members of Resolution, First for Family Law, and the Law Society Children Panel Accreditation, we are authorised to provide Legal Aid, for which we are committed to supporting.  You have peace of mind that we have the experience to guide you through life’s most challenging situations.
