We recognise that the breakdown of a relationship can be stressful and emotionally charged. While every situation is different, reducing hostility and conflict is essential.

We are experienced handling the most complex and sensitive of matters and can provide advice on all aspects of the law and the best way of resolving disputes concerning couples, families and their relationships, including:
- divorce and separation

We aim to be fair but firm, using our skills and experience to help you to achieve your desired outcome. When required we will adopt a robust approach to deal with difficult and opposing points of view. Our clients trust us to provide high quality family law advice and exceptional client support in the most challenging of circumstances.
All our solicitors are specialists in family law and are members of Resolution, the professional body representing family lawyers which encourages a non-confrontational approach to resolving family disputes. A number of our team are also trained family mediators and collaborative lawyers allowing us to offer methods of resolving family disputes which are designed to reduce confrontation, keep costs to a minimum and where possible avoid the need to go to court.
