We recognise that a relationship breakdown and related family issues can be complex, as well as emotionally and financially challenging for you. If you are considering divorce or separation, you will want to find a carefully chosen solicitor who is a specialist in Family Law, understands and is sensitive to your situation and is on-hand when needed. You may find our blog article, 'Choosing a Solicitor Who is a Specialist Family Lawyer' helpful.

Our team is experienced in dealing with complex Family Law cases, including those involving children and significant assets (including business shareholdings, property, trusts and overseas interests). We can also advise on areas including emergency applications to the Court, pre nuptial and post nuptial agreements and surrogacy.

We are committed to providing you with clear and effective legal advice, an understanding and supportive service and, crucially, value for money. 

A Trusted Reputation for Family Law

Our Family Law team features qualified members of Resolution, the Law Society’s Family Law Accreditation Scheme and the Thames Valley Family Lawyers' Society

We are the only firm in Reading and Henley-on-Thames to be recognised as a top tier firm of Family Law solicitors in both of the UK’s leading guides to law firms, Chambers UK and The Legal 500. In 2018, we were named as a finalist for 'Family Law Firm of the Year - South' at the UK-wide Family Law Awards. Please also see 'What Our Clients Say' about their experience of working with us and the results of our annual feedback survey.

When making a decision, don't necessarily limit yourself to firms within your local area. We routinely advise clients remotely and can support you via phone, email and video communications. Where appropriate, we may also be able to travel to see you for an initial or subsequent meetings.

As a leading regional firm, we instruct the same experts and barristers and issue proceedings in the same courts as the larger national and City firms, providing a cost-effective alternative, without compromising on the quality of legal advice you will receive.

You may find our blog articles, including 'Getting a Divorce - A Helpful Guide' and 'How To Tell Children About Divorce or Separation: 10 Tips' of further interest.

Recognising the need to find the right approach for you, a member of our dedicated Family Law team can discuss and help to assess your individual situation and provide clear and practical advice on a way forward which will achieve the best outcome for you (and your family) while helping to carefully manage costs.

We offer several alternatives to court litigation, including mediation, collaborative lawarbitration and and early neutral evaluation, providing you the opportuity to deal with matters without the need to attend court. We are also experienced in using other methods to resolve disputes, such as round table meetings and private financial dispute resolution hearings (FDRs).
