Solicitors Specialising in Family Law

When a relationship breaks down it can be a very difficult time for everyone involved, especially if it results in a legal battle.

Contacting a private client solicitor may seem like an added complication at an already stressful time, but getting in touch with our approachable, friendly team at an early stage is the right thing to do.

Our team of specialist divorce and family law solicitors have the knowledge and experience to understand your situation, and will deal with your case in a sensitive way.

At Lanyon Bowdler, our solicitors are dedicated to the interests of their clients and will guide you through the process from start to finish.

One of the main worries people have about instructing a solicitor is how much it will cost them, and we have developed a number of pricing options to help solve that problem, including fixed fees and service level guarantees.

Services and Family Law Advice from Lanyon Bowdler

We have offices in Telford, Shrewsbury, Ludlow, Oswestry and Hereford so can provide services across Shropshire, Herefordshire and Mid and North Wales. For example, our divorce and family law specialists have worked with clients in Wrexham, Powys, Stafford, Chester, Welshpool, Bridgnorth and Market Drayton, as well as nationally.

The two key words of how we approach negotiations are “practical” and “balanced” - minimising conflict but firmly protecting your interests. This style of negotiation means we typically reach amicable resolutions quickly, but if litigation is necessary, we have the expertise and experience to do so effectively.

Head of the family law team, Colin Spanner, and associate solicitor, Lisa Grimmett, are experienced collaborative lawyers, which you can read more about on the Collaborative Law page.
