You need a family law solicitor who not only has a mastery of the law, but whom you trust to guide you through important decisions in the way that best suits your needs. This might require an innovative way to resolve your disputes amicably or, as a last resort, fighting your corner successfully, in court. Flexibility is key to our approach and you can rely on the advice we deliver being realistic, pragmatic and, crucially, cost effective.

At TWM all of our family law solicitors have extensive experience in resolving a whole spectrum of complex and sensitive family law concerns.

Our clients are increasingly looking to us for advice in the early stages of a relationship to plan for the future – often at the point of moving in together, getting married or relocating to the UK.

As well as having the expertise to deal with complex financial arrangements and an understanding of how to build an agreement, all of our family law solicitors our committed to placing the welfare of your children above all else.
