Why our Family Solicitors are different
Our approach to managing Family and Divorce issues focuses on providing the very best client experience. We believe this sets us apart from other law firms who often treat such matters as nothing more than a “legal process”.
We understand how crucial it is to understand fully our clients’ issues and wishes and that making decisions can sometimes be difficult during an emotionally stressful period in their lives. We focus on providing clear advice which minimises hostility with the aim of successfully resolving even the most complex matters in an efficient and cost effective way.
We will explain to you the various options you have for resolving the issues which have arisen which includes Mediation, Collaborative Law and Arbitration. Should you wish to use Mediation or Collaborative Law members of our team are qualified to provide these services.
We do understand that sometimes clients may feel they are faced with no alternative but to settle their dispute using the Court process. Our team is skilled in managing family disputes through Court.
We understand that many people are concerned about how much money they may spend on legal costs. We will always discuss with you the cost of any work you would like us to carry out, before starting work for you.
