So our advice is always personal, practical and tailored for you. Whether it’s divorce, a dispute with your cohabitant, or securing contact with your children, our team will work with you to map out a plan for the future. We listen to your priorities and concerns. We clarify your issues and explore your options. And we find the approach that fits. Because we’re more than just litigators or mediators.
We’re trusted advisers – at your side for the journey ahead.
When things take a turn for the worst, having someone to rely on can make all the difference. From the moment you instruct one of our family law solicitors, we will provide you with a clear, jargon-free understanding of your unique legal position and an estimate of the time and costs involved. That way, you’re in a better place to decide what’s right for you.
We recognise that each family is different and has its own special circumstances, which is why we will always take the time to listen to your situation in full. This helps us to be able to provide tailored advice on how best to protect your interests. Whatever the issue – divorce, a dispute with your cohabitant, financial issues arising from your cohabitation or separation, securing contact with your children or grandchildren. Recognised for our commitment to client care, we will always work proactively to move your case forward, bringing things to a satisfying conclusion in a timely manner.
Our aim is to enable you to move from a painful present to a stable future with minimal fuss, and if possible, we will attempt to achieve this through Alternative Dispute Resolution to save you the costs of court.
We can negotiate a settlement for you, refer you to mediation or sit round the table with you, your partner and their lawyer in the Collaborative law process.
In other cases agreement at an early stage is not possible and a detailed knowledge of the law, legal procedure and local practice is essential, which is why our lawyers can help you and your family.

This guidance has been put together to give prospective clients an idea about what to expect during the initial consultation appointment and the type of information we will ask for. It has been modelled on an appointment for a client who is considering or going through a divorce, but the general principles apply to all appointments.
I would like to leave a testimonial/recommendation for Beth following my experience:
"When I first approached Beth for assistance I felt completely trapped in a very negative shared equity situation. This had followed a difficult separation and had been going on for almost 5 years.
Previous dealings with solicitors had left me feeling overwhelmed and unsure of my legal standing - prior advice had been open-ended and non-committal.
Beth very quickly helped me to turn this situation around as my rights were very clear to her. We took the matter straight to a court hearing where Beth was extremely adept at obtaining an order or sale. Within 6 months my house had been sold, and I was finally free to move on without the worry of facing financial ruin.
I would really like to thank Beth most sincerely for her professionalism and kind nature throughout. She has really provided so much more than I could have hoped for, and has helped to turn my life around."
