We offer competitive fixed-fee pricing for our conveyancing services. If you would like an instant idea of how much your property transaction could cost, feel free to use our conveyancing calculator.

Family law

Our compassionate but practical family solicitors understand how distressing involving the law in your family matters and disputes can be. Whether you are looking for a divorce, you want advice about social services involvement in your family, or you need support and advice about domestic violence, we are on hand to make the process as easy and painless as possible.

Our areas of expertise include:

From our extensive experience we’ve learnt that a cooperative, amicable approach to family law matters always works better than a confrontational one.

Therefore, wherever possible, we encourage families to come to agreements outside of court (which tends to naturally encourage conflict) and we can provide advice regarding Alternative Dispute Resolution processes such as mediation and collaborative law.

We also offer advice on legal change of name for both adults and children, including obtaining a deed poll and assisting with applications to update the child’s passport. As the passport office is conveniently located in Newport, we often provide swift turnarounds of Change of Name Deeds for clients who are in the area attending urgent passport appointments. If needs be, we can arrange an appointment regarding a change of name within one hour, allowing you to secure your passport as soon as possible.

Wills & Probate

Planning for the future is an essential but daunting task. From making a Will, to organising your estate to minimise Inheritance Tax, to challenging someone’s inheritance entitlement, our dedicated team of Wills and probate solicitors will be happy to discuss your exact needs and provide tailored advice accordingly. Our areas of expertise include:

Criminal law

We have an enviable reputation for our expertise in criminal defence law. Whatever the seriousness of the offence you are faced with – from motoring offences, to serious fraud, to murder and manslaughter – our team of criminal defence solicitors will utilise our wide-ranging knowledge of the criminal law to preserve your rights and build you a robust defence.

Our team includes police station representatives, solicitors, and Higher Rights Advocates so we can support and guide you through every stage of the criminal justice process, from the moment you’re arrested or called in for interview under caution, all the way through to trial (if you are charged with an offence).

When you are arrested and taken to a police station, or you are invited in for a voluntary interview, you have the right to legal advice and you can call us for instant advice 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

It is highly recommended that you do not speak to the police until you have received legal advice as what you say can be used as evidence against you, so get in touch with our criminal defence lawyers as soon as possible.
