Leading Family Law Solicitors in Reading & Henley-on-Thames
We recognise that a relationship breakdown and other family related matters can be complex, as well as emotionally and financially challenging for you.
If you are considering separation or divorce, or seeking advice more widely, 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. The area of Family Law is fast moving and only a solicitor who spends all of their time working in this field can be expected to stay abreast of developments.

Our team is highly experienced in dealing with Family Law cases ranging from the relatively straightforward, through to complex and high value divorces, including those involving children, significant assets (for example, property, business shareholdings, trusts and overseas interests). We can also advise on areas of Family Law including financial arrangements, pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements, cohabitation, domestic abuse, surrogacy, and Court applications, appeals and enforcement.
