‘very personal’ family team is ‘always accessible’ and ‘very knowledgeable’

The Legal 500 2013

Family

Dealing with the legal aspects of a relationship or family breakdown requires a thorough knowledge of the law and a tactful, understanding approach.

Our lawyers always try to minimise the pain and stress caused by family issues and focus on finding the best outcome for you. We never lose sight of the long-term interests of both the adults and children involved.

With a broad range of knowledge and experience, we are also specialists in mediation and collaborative law, providing the right expertise in even the most unusual and difficult circumstances.

Sarah Judd is a Deputy District Judge which enables us to offer a unique view from the Court. Joanna Pratt, Desmond O'Donnell and Sarah are accredited in Chambers Directory as industry leaders in their field for family law.

We pride ourselves on providing all of our clients with a high quality and efficient service. Our family team was quoted in the Chambers independent guide to the legal profession as being “one of the top firms for family work to the south of London”. The Legal 500 quotes "Well-considered advice…presents a realistic picture of the likely outcome".

Clients benefit from the support and collective experience of the firm. As well as family law, we offer a strong network of lawyers to provide a comprehensive service, including the provision of wills, buying or selling a home as well as details of counsellors, mediators, forensic accountants and enquiry agents.

Our strong team of family law specialists deals with the legal aspects of family problems in a practical, clear and supportive way. We regularly publish information sheets covering all aspects of family law to help guide you through what can be a stressful process.
