Family Law Solicitors

When there is a family breakup, we are there to help

As specialist family law solicitors we know that when families separate there is an enormous amount to deal with, both practically and emotionally, especially if children are involved.  We understand this.  We will work closely with you to make sure we use our personal and legal skills to achieve the results that are of real importance to you and your family.

Our approach to family law

Resolution Code of ConductWithin our team we have specialists accredited by Resolution, an organisation believing in a constructive, non-confrontational approach to family law matters. Resolution members follow a Code of Practice that promotes negotiation and agreement and considers the needs of the whole family, in particular the best interests of children, following a marriage break up.  Click here to download a copy of the Code of Practice or on the Resolution logos below to find out more about Resolution.

We also have Law Society accredited specialists in Children Law.  Accredited members must prove that they have and will maintain a high level of knowledge, skills, experience and practice in the area of children law and the representation of children. You can find out more by clicking here.
