Established in 1999 The Family Law Practice are specialist family lawyers who are used to dealing with all types of family law issues. Its success has been built on its reputation for providing excellent client service. This led to it outgrowing its original premises and moving to a modern office in Cable Street, just east of the City and close to Canary Wharf.

We specialise in all areas of family law, and have the expertise to assist and help you through those difficult times which arise when a marriage or a relationship breaks down. We will always put the needs of our clients first and if we believe that Court is not the answer then it’s our job to explore with you all other alternatives. We will work with you to secure an outcome that is best for you and your family. We recognise the advantages and disadvantages of the Court processes and if a Court application is best for you then we will always provide strong representation.

As well as offering mediation we work with a range of other professionals including barristers, accountants, financial advisers, counsellors, child specialists and independent financial advisers.
Our staff members are proud to contribute to the community including through the provision of pro bono legal advice through community organisations.

We offer an initial consultation with a solicitor to help you consider your options for £180.
This fixed fee appointment has been created by the Family Law Practice to provide an opportunity for people to gain initial advice at the right time to suit them without any obligation to begin a particular course of action. You can use the time how you wish. It can cover all areas of Family Law and is designed to provide you with the information you need to move forward in the right direction.


Our work is focused on our clients’ needs and those of their children and so it is most important for us to listen to our clients. It is so important in family law that you find solicitors who you get on with and can talk to. You will need to share personal information and you will have many questions to ask so you will not want your lawyer to be difficult to talk to. It is important to be kept informed at every stage and that you receive advice that will help you to make informed decisions about your future.

Cost is also an important factor when it comes to choosing a family lawyer. We know it can be an issue and we will try to be upfront and fair about our fees. It is clear that one of the areas that people feel most anxious about is that they will engage the services of a solicitor at an hourly rate and that the costs will escalate to much more than they had envisaged

Here at the Family Law Practice we have introduced fixed prices for dealing with divorce, ending civil partnerships, children matters up to the first hearing and representation at Court. We can also offer a fixed fee for preparing Consent Orders for the Court for financial settlements following mediation.

We will always strive to find better ways of helping our clients through relationship breakdown.
