Flexible services, flexible payment options

Everyone is different and so are their circumstances. We understand that some people like to meet with their solicitor face-to-face whilst others require the flexibility of communicating by phone or online.

We tailor our service to give you as much or as little help as you need. We have an online guide to help you Do It Yourself or we can offer further guidance with our Basic Support package. If your circumstances are complicated and you’d like us to manage your divorce for you, we provide a Full Support service. Whichever route you want to take, your initial call or meeting is free and we offer a range of flexible payment packages to suit your needs.

The team

The team is headed by solicitor Gabbie Clasper, who has over 20 years’ experience and is an expert in financial issues arising from divorce, cases with an international element and dissolution of civil partnerships.
