Our legal expertise

We offer a comprehensive legal service for individuals and families across Leicestershire and the East Midlands from our 2 offices in Leicester and Loughborough.

Conveyancing

Whether you are buying or selling a home, taking out a lease, remortgaging, or need help with any other type of residential property deal, we aim to make the process as clear, smooth and hassle free as possible.

We are members of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme (CQS), reflecting the high standards of our residential property services.

Family law

If your relationship has broken down, we can offer sensitive, practical support to help you find the right outcome for you and your family.  We always aim to keep the process amicable, helping you to avoid unnecessary conflict and court proceedings wherever possible, while ensuring your interests and those of your loved ones are protected.

Child care & Social Services

We understand how confusing and worrying it can be when Social Services become involved with your family, so provide a reassuring voice of support to help guide you through these difficult issues.

We have many years of experience dealing with child care issues and Social Services, so can give you clear idea of what to expect and how best to protect your family. Many of our team are members of the Law Society’s Children Panel, reflecting our expertise in this area.

Domestic abuse

If you or your loved ones have experienced domestic abuse, we can help provide immediate, practical support to protect you. This includes securing Court Orders to prevent your abuser from approaching or contacting you and your loved ones, as well as forcing them to leave your family home and other measures as required.

Many of our domestic abuse services can be offered on a Legal Aid basis, meaning you should be able to access help regardless of your personal financial situation.

Wills & probate

Our Wills and Probate team will manage the distribution and administration of a loved one’s Will in a time efficient and sensitive manner. We acknowledge what a stressful and difficult time it can be and will do our utmost to reduce your stress and anxiety at this time.

Our team includes a number of specialists working with elderly and vulnerable people, including Jane Hinds who is a member of the Alzheimer’s Society and a trained dementia friend.

Lasting Powers of Attorney & Court of Protection Deputyship

If you are worried about what would happen if you were no longer able to manage your financial affairs or make decisions about your health and welfare, or have a loved one who is in this situation, we can help.

With a Lasting Power of Attorney, you can grant a trusted person the authority to make important decisions about your finances and/or welfare for you, while applying to become a Court of Protection Deputy can give you the ability to do this for a loved one who has already lost the capacity to make these decisions.

Fitness to practice

If your fitness to practice in a professional capacity has been called into question, we can provide experienced, highly effective advice and support to help you protect your career, your livelihood and your reputation.

We can guide you through every step of regulatory proceedings related to your fitness to practice, including corresponding with your regulator, preparing your case and supporting you during regulatory hearings to give you the best chance of a positive outcome.

Road traffic offences & criminal law

If you are interviewed by the police or charged with a motoring offence or any other type of criminal offence, we can offer the skilled advocacy you need to ensure you achieve a fair outcome. With decades of experience across our criminal defence team, we can ensure no angle is overlooked and that all relevant evidence will be considered.

Our team includes accredited Police Station Representatives, meaning we can advise and support you from the outset, ensuring your defence is built effectively from the very beginning and any opportunity for an early resolution is not overlooked.
