Divorce & Family Law

"Support and understanding are absolutely essential..."

When a relationship breaks down or there is a serious problem within the family, support and understanding combined with specialist legal expertise is absolutely essential.

We encourage the use of alternative forms of dispute resolution and offer innovative collaborative law services as well as having excellent links with local independent mediation services.

If court proceedings are necessary, our family law specialists will ensure that you are fully supported throughout every stage of the process.
