    Client testimonial about Gael Phillips - Family

    Sukhi Patter made me feel very safe and would get the outcome in my favour. Also at no time did she make me feel worthless because I had got in arrears with paying my mortgage and would like to thank her for the outcome. Thanks very much.

    Client testimonial about Meg Abbott

    I have nothing but good things to say about the service which has been provided. I hope I will not find myself in a position to have to do so, but if any of my friends are faced with divorce proceedings I would not hesitate to recommend you and your team.

    Client testimonial about Mary Shaw - Family

    This has been the worst week of our lives. Your support, both legal and practical, has helped us to get through it with our sanity intact. The fact that you agreed to see us within 18 hours of my initial phone call was, quite frankly, magnificent. Huge thanks from us all.

    Client testimonial about Lesley Monkhouse - Family

    I would like to thank you for the service you have provided over the past few weeks. I believe that you’re prompt intervention, with regard to legality, and the professional manner in which you presented at the hearing played a key part in the other parties’ claim being dismissed.

    Client testimonial about Lucy Mead - Family

    Many thanks for all your help and hard work in getting these orders in place.

    Mary Shaw was outstanding and professional at every turn.  She was an excellent advocate for my daughter

    Client testimonial about Mary Shaw - Family

    To eventually get to the end of the process and have a fabulous relationship with my daughters seems miles away from where we started and I am in no doubt that you have been a large factor in that happening. I can’t thank you enough and wish you well in the future.

    Client testimonial about Mary Shaw - Family

    I just want to say firstly thank you. Thank you for everything you have done for me and my children over the past year.  You’ve kept me sane and kept me on the ground and I couldn’t of asked for a better solicitor.

    Can I also thank you for the help you have given me over these final few months of my divorce and for cutting through the years of accumulated undergrowth to achieve what appears to be a satisfactory resolution....many thanks for your help it has been appreciated.

    Client testimonial about Mary Shaw - Family

    Thank you for your highly professional support, and attention to detail……. At the start I was not sure how the long distance collaboration would work but it has been a very friendly, easy, working relationship between us, and I appreciate very much how you conveyed a sense of solidarity to me even though we have never met. I would also like to thank Kim who was the perfect 'relay' between us whenever it was necessary.

    Client testimonial about Mary Shaw - Family

    I could not have asked for any better than my solicitor Elspeth, she has been my champion. I don’t have the words to thank her enough as she has been my biggest support for more than a year now. I can rate her 10 out of 10 for her professionalism, her competence and her fair advice.

    I remain eternally grateful for your sound advice and support when I was at my lowest and I needed you most.

    Client testimonial about Lucy Mead - Family

    I was the luckiest person to have Mary Shaw help me through my divorce. 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.She was the friend that talked sense and gave you a gentle shake to wise up and push forward.

    Client testimonial about Mary Shaw - Family

    I just wanted to say how very grateful I am to you. You've been a calm and supportive presence during what has been an enormously difficult time, and your advice has been invaluable.

    Client testimonial about Sukhi Patter - Family

Children can lose a relationship with loving grandparents when parents separate.

We understand how much grandparents have to offer children and we work to advise and support our clients to help them re-establish contact where that has broken down. We will advise you about the various processes available to you including family mediation and applications to court. Grandparents do not have the same rights as parents and the rules for making an application to the court are different from those of parents. It is therefore very important that you take specialist advice and do not take hasty action out of desperation which could be counter-productive.

Grandparents’ relationships with their grandchildren can come under threat for a number of different reasons: we also frequently advise grandparents who want to have contact with grandchildren who have been taken into care or who want to look after grandchildren when social services have become involved.

Our experienced and skilled team includes solicitors who are accredited by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and Resolution as experts in this field.

We are on the Grandparents’ Association lawyers list.

If you want advice about your grandchildren please contact our team in Newcastle or South Shields.

You can contact us via this website at any time or call Louise Law for a no obligation chat.
