Expertise at every level

Our lawyers each have a broad range of experience and specialisms, enabling them to provide a sensitive and authorative approach in all areas of family and matrimonial law.

In addition, we are the only family law firm in the north with the expertise of an in-house barrister at our disposal. This enables us to do what many of our rivals cannot - provide firm, focused, specialist advice and representation from the outset of all cases, with a view to resolving matters in a constructive, cost effective and expeditious manner.

The breadth of our team and our flexible charging structure allows us to meet the needs of all clients in a cost effective way.

We can offer clients alternatives to the court process, where appropriate. Four members of the team are qualified collaborative family law practitioners.
