"Partner Edward Owen is the city's only solicitor to have Resolution accreditation for dealing with pensions in divorce settlements."

"Denis White and Edward Owen are often the first choice "go-to" people if there is an urgent family case at court and a party needs a lawyer urgently. Both are very experienced and ideal for this type of case because of their calm and measured approach."

"Edward Owen is 'a determined, realistic and able advocate in care proceedings; he is committed to getting as good an outcome as possible and does so with undaunted good grace'."

“I can't thank you enough for your help and advice through everything. You've gone above and beyond and been really patient explaining the whole process.”
