Instructing a family law solicitor
If you’ve never spoken to a solicitor before, don’t worry. Here’s a quick guide to help you find a good family law solicitor:
Think about what issue you need help with.
Choose your solicitor based on their experience in the relevant field.
Find out if they have accreditations in the relevant area of law.
If you need help with family law, find a specialist, not the solicitor who helped sell your house or does work for your business.
Meet a number of solicitors and speak to them. They should give you a few minutes of their time for free.
After meeting a solicitor, ask yourself the following questions:
Did they listen to you?
Do they give you practical solutions?
Was it easy to understand their advice?
Did you get a clear idea of how the case might proceed and the likely costs?

New to instructing a solicitor?
Don’t worry. Getting solutions to your legal problems begins with our three point plan.
Get in touch with us – and don’t worry!
We understand how difficult it can be to talk about your problem so it’s our purpose to make the process as easy as possible for you.
We are also very open about our fees and will see if you are eligible for Legal Aid very quickly. In fact, we offer a free initial interview with our assessment staff to check your eligibility and to help you apply.
Our small firm recently won Team of the Year for Client Experience, and Ramin Shamsolahi was highly commended in the Leader of the Year category at the Devon and Somerset Law Society Legal Awards 2018. We’ve also won the Law Society’s national award for Client Service in 2010.
You’re in good hands!
Let’s talk – tell us about your issues.
When you first get in touch we’ll ask you some questions about the challenges you’re facing. We can do this in a number of ways:
Meet in our Barnstaple office
Meet in your home
Once we know what kind of help you need we can determine the best way to help you.
To get the ball rolling, please get in touch. Our door is always open, as they say.
Create a plan – and make things happen.
The third stage is to agree on a plan. This may mean negotiating in or out of court. We can help you to draw up agreements, such as pre-nuptials, and plan your children’s futures if you are separating or getting divorced.
In cases involving social workers, we can get on board immediately and start helping you change what may look like a negative situation to a more positive outcome for you and your children.
Who can make referrals?
In short, anyone can make referrals to us. If you are a worried grandparent, or a friend concerned about a care case, then please talk to us. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
We can act for you regardless of where you live. In child cases, most hearings take place in the area where the child now lives. Contact us and we can tell you whether we are the right firm for your case.
If you live a good distance from our offices, we can arrange a Skype meeting.
