Personal services for you and your family

We focus on providing personal legal services and helping clients with key events and at key stages throughout their lives, whether that be for Family Law, Civil Law or Criminal Defence.

Commercial services for your business

We provide a range of legal services for your business, including Commercial Conveyancing, Employment Law, Business Immigration and Landlord and Tenant Law.


Whether you require personal legal advice or help for your business, our guiding philosophy is the same;

We’re about fairness

We care about providing the best legal advice and client care. We care about providing fairness and justice for all our clients.

We’re about value

Our commitment to quality is matched by our efforts to make it affordable, ensuring high-grade legal advice is available for all.

We’re about service

We don’t just look after the law, we look after you with our friendly, down-to-earth approach, clear and consistent communication and reassuring transparency on costs.


It’s a refreshing style that’s seen us regularly rated as the region’s best: our family and crime teams are regarded as centres of excellence, whilst the civil department, with its broad scope embracing everything from wills and conveyancing to personal injury, medical negligence and business law, is increasingly the first port of call for those in need.
