Family, Divorce & Children

We recognise that families come in lots of different shapes: whether you are married, cohabiting, have children, step-children or choose to stay child-free; there are lots of different and valid ways to create a family. That is why we take an individual approach to each client who comes to us.

The breakdown of a relationship can be one of the most challenging experiences of a person’s life with ramifications not only for the couple but also for their children and their wider families.

There are countless reasons why people find themselves needing advice from a solicitor specialising in family law, but no matter the reason, we adopt a sensitive and supportive approach with the emphasis on guiding you step by step through the process. We will provide specialist legal advice which is realistic, cost effective and avoids legal jargon.

Many of our lawyers are members of Resolution, which means that they are personally committed to a constructive, non-confrontational approach to family law issues. In addition Partner Philip Cowell and Solicitor Emma Smith are specialist Collaborative Lawyers, who aim to work with you, your partner and your partner's lawyer, in a series of face to face negotiations, to help you resolve your family disputes in a more collaborative way.
