We are a specialist and experienced team of divorce and family law solicitors with offices in both York and Leeds. Our principal office is an elegant building near the Minster in York, and for the benefit of our Leeds based clients we also enjoy the use of luxury offices at Calls Wharf in Leeds.
We recognise that the work we do is often life changing. We never lose sight of how important it is that our clients feel matters are resolved in a timely, fair and supportive way. We work to reduce stress and acrimony wherever possible allowing the future to be faced with both confidence and dignity.
The two specialist family lawyers in our team used to make up the major part of the Leeds family law team of one of the top ten legal firms in the country. All are members of Resolution, which is a national organisation of family law professionals.
Our Values, which we apply to all we do:
Children are vulnerable to the effects of separation and divorce. Our approach will recognise that they are likely to be your highest priority. We will support you in securing the most appropriate arrangements for them, most often involving where they will live and when they see each parent.
Please do have a look at the individual profiles for Nigel, Louise and Jane on our website above.
