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.
“The Silk culture gives the client confidence that they are being advised by experts in their field while ensuring that service is provided in a supportive and understanding way.”
