We specialise in family law and childcare work.

We can call upon the expertise of other Solicitors to provide corporate, commercial, estate and inheritance advice.

We also have a close working relationship with our Accountants who are prepared to provide advice in respect of tax and pension implications. We believe that this provides us with considerable expertise in depth to deal with all types of cases – no matter how difficult.

We are particularly experienced in dealing with divorces where there are complicated business assets and farming practices.

We have a high reputation in the local Courts, particularly the West Cumbria County Court, West Cumbria Family Proceedings Court and Carlisle County Court.

We believe that we have the strength of character to deal with complex and difficult emotional issues which can arise from the breakdown of any relationship.

In particular we provide assistance in the following areas :

Our Family Team consists of two very experienced Solicitors both of whom have considerable expertise.

We have all acted for parents in disputes concerning their children. We are able to offer clear advice in respect of any likely outcome should the matter reach Court and also provide support for parents in what is a very emotional and difficult time.

In respect of child care cases, we believe that our Team is committed to providing assistance. Despite what is invariably short notice in these proceedings, we have a commitment to our clients to provide the necessary advice and assistance in Court – even when considerable work is required to be undertaken on a very limited time-scale.

We believe that our Family Team is totally committed to providing clear advice and support to all their clients – we provide assistance for private clients but are also committed to providing public funding where necessary.
