Cliff Veitch – Property
Housing and Property
Many thanks for your correspondence. Within a few days of visiting you I was notified by MP for Bishop Auckland that the UK Border Agency had overturned its decision. As a result my Wife is now back residing with me. Many thanks for your advice.
Rebecca Boniface – Family
Wills, Probate and Trusts
I think I was the luckiest person ever to have Mary Shaw help me through my divorce. And it really was help. She was firm, but never pushy, forthright but always fair, sympathetic but never deviated from the goal of practically carrying me through this torrid time. She was always there. In social circumstances she would be the friend that talked sense and gave you a gentle shake to wise up and push forward.
Mary Shaw – Family
Courts, Police and Prisons
Thank you to you and your staff for help selling my late Fathers property. You made a difficult process easy to understand and your staff were both helpful and easy to deal with. I would be happy to recommend your professional service to my remaining family in the UK.

I am experienced in dealing with a wide range of family law issues but my particular specialities are in complex financial cases involving married and unmarried relationships and also children cases where there is social services department involvement

I am a specialist family solicitor with over 13 years experience in all areas of family law.

I am conscious people who come to  see me for advice are at one of the most difficult times in their lives. I am committed to providing firm and realistic advice to all clients, listening to what they want and hope to happen. I believe it is important to approach your case with the understanding that different people have different priorities and will take the time to understand what is most important to you. I will aim to find the best possible solutions to the issues you are facing quickly and effectively, whether outside or within the court process.

I am a member of Resolution, the family lawyers organisation committed to the non-confrontational resolution of family disputes. I am accredited as a specialist by Resolution in the areas of cohabitation law and advanced financial provision, and am a Resolution trained Collaborative Family Lawyer. I give particular importance to the interests and welfare of any children of the family.
