Dealing with all matters both of a personal or a business matter, your dedicated specialist will handle your case with the utmost respect, compassion and discretion from your initial meeting all the way to conclusion.

Family matters

From adoption to pre-nuptial agreements, childrens law to civil partnerships, we can advise you on plans, processes and procedures. Our family team are experts in their field and will utilise their skills and judgement to achieve the best results possible for you.


Be it here or overseas, buyer or seller, our Conveyancing team can assist you with your involvement in the world of property and land ownership. Acting swiftly and cost effectively we will get you where you need to be as seamlessly as possible, leaving you free to focus on what matters to you most.

Standing up for your rights

In or out of the workplace we all deserve to be treated fairly and with respect. If you find yourself in a situation where this isn’t the case, we can fight your corner. From harassment to unfair dismissal, or even being the victim of an accident that wasn’t your fault, our employment and litigation teams will work to redress the balance and secure you the justice you deserve.

Planning for later life

Making a will can be done at any age and adapted if necessary should your circumstances change. No-one wants to think about dying but it’s imperative to ensure your wishes will be crystal clear when required. Our Private Client team can advise you on inheritance, tax planning, Power of Attorney and more to give you peace of mind for the future. 


If you need to move to the UK for work, or are looking to employ an individual not currently residing in this country, our immigration lawyers can advise you on which permissions are required and will support you in the gathering, completion and submission of any documentation necessary.

In trouble with the law

Working solely in defence, our Criminal team can represent you and your case should you find yourself on the wrong side of the law. Whether a simple speeding offence or something more serious, trust in us to help you when you need it most.

Advising families throughout Kent and beyond

We have offices in Tenterden, Maidstone, Tonbridge, Gravesend and Chatham that can be utilised for meetings between you and your solicitor. We can also offer meetings at your home or via Skype or a conference call where appropriate.


Dependent on the nature of your case, initial appointment fees can vary. After that we can arrange flexible payment terms, including monthly billing to help you budget.
