Dealing with a family problem is an emotional experience for all concerned. Whether you have issues relating to your own relationship, children or perhaps the elderly, you need specialist advice from lawyers who appreciate the need for a sensitive guide through the complexities of family law.
The traditional concept of ‘the family unit’ may have changed over recent years but those involved when relationships break down still have specific needs which must be addressed.
Our clients generally have a variety of questions:
The team at Lester Morrill will answer these questions and more and will provide you with advice tailored to your specific requirement. Our aim is to provide professional assistance not only for the immediate difficulties but also to guard against those which might arise in the future.
Headed by Elizabeth Bowskill, our team has over 30 years’ experience in assisting families toward a positive outcome endorsed by accreditation from the Law Society’s Family Law Panel (upper tier) and a Specialist Quality Mark from the Legal Services Commission. As members of Resolution, we encourage people to find their own appropriate solutions and avoid the concept of contestants who will either win or lose.
We can also offer alternatives to the conventional methods of resolving disputes by mediation or the collaborative process to enable parties to resolve their difficulties without resort to formal court proceedings.
For those cases where negotiation breaks down, where the only option is to proceed to court, we have the necessary expertise in litigation to provide reliable, professional representation throughout the proceedings.
Our team acts for both privately-funded individuals as well as being accredited by the Legal Services Commission for the quality of its work on behalf of publicly-funded (legally-aided) cases.
