family law

We appreciate that the breakdown of a relationship is always a very difficult time and we aim to provide clear, practical advice. The majority of cases can be dealt with by way of negotiation. In the absence of agreement then we have experienced advocates who can represent you in Court proceedings.

We have a team of solicitors who have expertise in all areas of family law. We have solicitors who are members of the Family Law Accreditation Scheme and who are also accredited specialists and members of Resolution.
