About My Business:
I am a self employed family lawyer and work with Woolley & Co, Solicitors specialising in all aspects of divorce law. Predominantly based in Cornwall I also work in London. I am a qualified Collaborative Lawyer accredited with Resolution, so in addition to traditional court based work I also offer the collaborative process which allows my client's to have control of the whole process instead of the process being in control of them, whereby settlements are sought by way of round table meetings instead of going to court which can achieve a settlement far quicker and because the client's have reached their own decisions, the statistics show that it is far more likely to succeed in the long run. A client once thanked me for introducing her to the process as whilst she had divorced, the collaborative process had allowed the family to stay in tact for the sake of their 3 children. My goal is to raise the profile of this modern day approach to divorce.
Even if the collaborative process in its strictest form cannot be offered eg, if my client's are living in different countries, I would always encourage the other party to instruct a collaborative lawyer so we can use our collaborative skills in ensuring the best outcome for the client's such as picking up the phone and chatting about the case instead of sending endless letters back and forth, common sense you could say.
What sets the work I do apart from most traditional law firms, is that we offer fixed fees for every aspect of the work that we do which is advertised on our website, fixed fees give the client's certainty about the costs. I am in the service industry, offering a service to my client's who deserve the best possible experience and outcome in my view.
