Our experience

Our team cover every aspect of family law, from helping you to plan and protect at the start of a relationship, to reaching a resolution at the end. We’ll take the time to understand your needs, and explain your options to reach a positive outcome for you and your family.

Where we can, we try and avoid stressful and costly court proceedings. Many members of our team are trained mediators and experts in using alternative dispute resolution. However, if it comes down to court, we’ll represent you and support you every step of the way.

Our clients

We help people from all walks of life, and have specialist knowledge of business and industry in our respective localities. These include farming families, and those working in healthcare, the armed forces and the technology sector. As a full-service law firm, we often work with other specialist teams to meet the individual needs of our clients.

We are also recommended to clients based overseas and all over the country. Our expert lawyers are adept at working with foreign counterparts and other professionals such as accountants and pension actuaries, to ensure our clients are fully informed about their situation .

Family Law Conference 2024

We held our first Family Law Conference in February 2024.

We welcomed family professionals and a panel of experts, including President of the Family Division Sir Andrew McFarlane, who discussed the importance of families having an option for resolution outside of the court process.

We also shared the expansion of our Unified in Separation service.

Introducing Unified in Separation

When you and your partner decide that your relationship has come to an end, and you’re ready to formalise arrangements concerning your children or assets, it is possible to find a more amicable process to achieve this than going to court.

Our approach offers you a bespoke route to resolution, with minimal stress and anguish, which enables you to move forward and rebuild your future positively.

I’d like to thank you for all your help and support given to me over the last few years. I cannot thank you enough for your true professionalism. I have felt that at every interaction we had that you really understood the impacts to me and my family personally.

You navigated me through a really challenging time at a pace that was right for me. It was hugely important that I had a settled family life, and that everyone was alright in the end and indeed we are!
