Why our family solicitors are different

Our approach to managing family and divorce issues focuses on providing the very best client experience, making the process easy to navigate and ensuring that our clients receive practical advice and robust representation throughout.

We understand how crucial it is to understand fully our clients’ issues and wishes and recognise that making decisions can sometimes be difficult during an emotionally stressful period in a persons life. By gaining a clear understanding of our clients’ aims and the issues involved, we provide clear advice and tailored solutions that minimise unnecessary hostility and successfully resolve even the most complex matters in an efficient and cost effective way. We resolve issues with discretion and sensitivity – ensuring that your interests and those of your children come first.

Where possible we will assist you to resolve your matter without the need to resort to Court, and will also explore with you the various options you have for resolving the issues which have arisen which include Mediation, Collaborative Law and Arbitration. Should you wish to use Mediation or Collaborative Law, members of our team are qualified to provide these services.

Sometimes there is no alternative but to settle a dispute using the Court process. Where this is required, our team is skilled in managing family disputes through the Court.
