Family Solicitors

Please note that the solicitor panel does not currently have the capacity to help with family-related stress claims.

We are still able to assist if you have sustained a family-related physical injury. Please see: Making a family or friend related injury claim.

Otherwise, to find a specialist family matter solicitor, please contact The Law Society on 020 7320 5650 (Mon to Fri from 09:00 to 17:00 charged at local call rates).

A good family solicitor requires a high level of experience and empathy, working with their clients to achieve the best possible outcome. Disputes that involve children are particularly challenging and require special care and expertise.

Family solicitors will aim to achieve a swift, amicable solution to a dispute, without compromising their client's preferred outcome.

There are a number of ways in which a solicitor can help separating couples find the most practical way forward. These include mediation and encouraging non-confrontational negotiation.

Sometimes a more formal legal route is unavoidable. Under these circumstances, a solicitor will work to minimise costs, stress and emotional upset.

Cohabitation advice, prenuptial agreements and other guidance

Family lawyers can also advise couples and families on a range of other issues, including drafting prenuptial agreements, adoption complexity and custody arrangements.

The panel of family solicitors have years of assisting with all family-related matters.

To speak to a solicitor in confidence, please call 0800 612 7456.
