Contact us Ring and speak with a Family Law Solicitor

When you contact us to make an appointment, we offer you the choice to speak to a family lawyer before our initial interview. Our family lawyer may answer some general queries, address possible misconceptions and perhaps begin to understand what your matter may be about. The information our family lawyer will discuss with you over the telephone will be generic in nature, we cannot, at that initial stage, give you comprehensive advice until we have full details of your situation.

Before your first appointment, we suggest that you read our article: Ten Questions to Ask your Family Lawyer at the Initial Interview and prepare the list of documents to bring to your initial Family Law Interview if you have them available. Read more…
