    Client testimonial about Jenny Carter - Family

    We used David Gray Solicitors LLP when we adopted a baby boy from an orphanage in Africa, and wished to have him legally adopted in the UK. The service we received was superb; a special mention should be made for Elspeth, she gives the law profession an excellent name. Elspeth was without doubt the key reason for the success of our case.

    Client testimonial about Elspeth Thomson - Family

    I'm sorry, apart from the obvious relief, that this will be the end of our association. You've given help and support which I've greatly valued. And I promise that if I get divorced again, I will give you first refusal.

    Client testimonial about Mary Shaw - Family

    We are immensely grateful to you and your team for the outcome of the court order today. The whole process has been quite stressful, but we felt fully supported and completely guided by you. You were a good friend rather than a legal contact. Your expertise of the law and how to overcome the hurdles in this difficult case were superb.

    Just a little card to say a big thank you .....Your support and encouragement over the process (as well as all the legal stuff!) has been invaluable to myself and.....if there is any way I could repay your kindness and empathy..... Many thanks, Mary, I consider you a true friend and ally!.

    Client testimonial about Elspeth Thomson - Family

Domestic abuse is common. The police receive one call every minute about it, even though it is estimated that the majority of abuse goes unreported. It happens in close relationships between people of all ages, gender, sexual orientation, class and culture. Acknowledging that a family member is abusing you is one of the hardest steps you can take. We know that you may be frightened, confused and anxious and asking for help can be difficult and daunting.

Our award winning team of Resolution Accredited Specialists will be on your side. We are here to advise you about the best way to protect yourself and any children, and to represent you in any urgent court applications that may be necessary. We will also advise you about related issues concerning property and finances.

Legal aid is available if you are experiencing domestic abuse and are financially eligible. We will always assess your eligibility for legal aid, and help you to get the necessary information to enable us to apply for funding on your behalf.

We work closely with local support organisations to ensure you receive the practical and emotional help you need alongside our legal advice.
