Family Law Solicitors

The breakdown of any relationship can be distressing and traumatic. We are known to provide our clients with the support, care and advice they need.  It is important that you obtain the right expert legal advice and representation as soon as possible.  Our specialist specialist solicitors Lee and Marie have extensive experience dealing with separating co-habitees, divorce, civil partnership breakdown, financial settlements, maintenance payments and child arrangements. 

We offer all prospective new clients an informal discussion without charge or obligation.  This will provide you with a broad overview of what you could achieve and the likely cost.

If you decide to proceed the person you meet will be the solicitor who acts for you.  You will be provided with a written estimate of the likely costs that may be incurred.  Nothing is hidden.
