Just a few lines to say how grateful I am for your professional and sympathetic help and guidance during my recent divorce... I really appreciated your patience and calm, reassuring manner when explaining​ complex matters.


Divorce and other difficulties in family relationships can be highly stressful and emotionally challenging. When a relationship breaks down, there are also many practical things to consider, such as the arrangements for your finances and children. Whatever relationship difficulty you may be experiencing, we will be happy to advise you about your legal position, the options available to you, and assist you to achieve the outcome you are looking for.

Free Legal Advice

We offer a free 30 minute consultation with one of our expert legal advisers, who will be able to discuss your situation with you and provide you with the information you need to make the right decision for you.

Even if you do not yet want to take any action but you do want to know your legal position, you can book an appointment to see one of our expert legal advisers. This will give you the opportunity to discuss your circumstances and to find out what the possible consequences there might be if there are changes in your family relationships.

Following the free 30 minute consultation you are not committed to take any course of action if you do not wish to do so.

If you do wish us to act on your behalf, we understand that you want there to be as much certainty about the cost as possible.  We can offer a range of fixed fee cost options and will be happy to discuss these with you.

We also offer Legal Aid in relation to Family Mediation and for certain family law cases.
