Working exclusively in family law, offering a premium quality service with invaluable support and advice, right from the start. We believe that it is important that you should be able to speak directly with your solicitor.

A long and bitter court case should be avoided. We encourage clients to pursue mediation, whenever appropriate. Mediation offers the least destructive and most dignified manner to resolve disputes. Sometimes mediation either has not worked or is simply not appropriate.

Many divorce clients have been subjected to terrible emotional and financial stress by the person to whom they thought they were closest. In such situations a firm approach needs to be adopted when resolving the dispute through the courts with the clear aim of achieving the very best possible result for the client.

Where to start…

Start by considering your options and what you want to do, is it a simple fixed fee you are after or is there a possibility you may want to take your case all the way to the courts? Head to ‘Your Options’ to find out which is best for you. You may also want to have a look at our ‘Practice Areas’ to see how we can help you.

Fixed Fee Cases

In many cases, we may be able to offer you a ‘fixed fee‘ payment structure. This means that you have a complete understanding of how much proceedings will cost throughout the duration of your case. Fixed fees are most appropriate for those with less complicated separations and, in-particular those cases which do not need you to go to court.

Fixed Fee Initial Consultation

Take advantage of our no-strings attached first appointment where we will be happy to sit down with you, listen to your situation and explain the options you have. ‘Contact us‘ via our contact page to receive your first hour appointment for a fixed fee of £120.

A wonderful service. I could not have got divorced without you. I had thought I needed a local solicitor but that wasn’t necessary at all. You were far better value than most of the other solicitors and I’m so glad I found you. Richard is a breath of fresh air. He is excellent value, but more importantly, he is wonderful to deal with. He is very respectful of people, efficient and personable. I have no hesitation in recommending him for divorce work.Jane L, Middlesexs

Thank you once again for all your invaluable advice which provided not only clarity on the legal issues but also reflected a genuine understanding of the complexities of my situation. In short, I couldn’t have faced it without you!Tina D, Bath
