How can we help?

If you are dealing with the consequences of your relationship coming to an end, we understand that sorting things out can be upsetting and far from easy. This is why the team takes pride in providing a caring and sympathetic service that matches the quality of our legal advice.

We are committed to providing a high quality and personal legal service. When advising you our family team always tries to avoid legal jargon and will be realistic with you as to what outcome you can realistically aim to achieve.

We offer you legal assistance in a variety of ways to enable us to help you resolve your matter that is best suited to you. This can be via mediation or the collaborative law process, negotiation of within Court proceedings.

As members of Resolution our team take a non-adversarial approach to negotiations and all of our work is aimed at trying to reach an agreement where possible.

In certain circumstances it is necessary to issue court proceedings and if this is the case we will ensure that we deal with such proceedings in a professional, sensitive and cost-effective way.

We recommend you consider taking up our initial fixed fee consultation so that we can give you an assessment of your case.
