Matrimonial and Family Department
"You made a typical difficult time easier to manage and listened to what I had to say"
"The service you have provided has been nothing but professional, polite and friendly"
"If I ever need any legal advice again, you will be the first people I come to"
Our Matrimonial and Family department aims to provide clear and sound advice at a time of extreme stress and in emotionally difficult circumstances.
We deal with all aspects of family law, including divorce and separation agreements, financial provision after divorce, co-habitation and matters relating to children including residence, contact and disagreements between parents.
We appreciate that every case is different and we offer objective and clear advice based on each client’s individual needs.
We are committed to following the Law Society's Family Law Protocol and Laura Hails is a member of Resolution, (formerly the Solicitors Family Law Association) which promotes a non-confrontational and conciliatory approach to family dispute aimed at keeping costs down whilst moving matters forward.
We understand, during these difficult economic times, that costs are a factor in family matters and that people are concerned about instructing solicitors due to the fees involved. We will always advise you on the options available to you, with a view to ensuring that as much of your money as possible is available for you and your family. The majority of our contact will be by telephone and e-mail, in order to keep our costs low.
We provide a friendly, approachable and value for money legal service, with a high level of professional expertise.
In the last resort, where matters need to be put before the Family Court, we litigate firmly in order to achieve the fairest result for our client.
