    Client testimonial about Mary Shaw - 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 Mary Shaw - 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.

    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 Mary Shaw - Family

    I have got through it with your support and you have kept me on the right tracks for the last 12 months too - even if it was sometimes things I didn't want to hear! ..... if we hadn't have had such a great solicitor (our daughter's) life could have turned out very different.

    Didn't feel like I said THANK YOU enough to you yesterday. So once again, a HUGE THANK YOU!

    Client testimonial about Jenny Carter - Family

    Mary was understanding and supportive of our situation. [Mediation] helped to make us talk and sort out our finances without the cost of solicitors fees and court fees.

    Client testimonial about Mary Shaw - Mediation

By instructing a solicitor to negotiate a settlement, you can be confident that you will receive the best advice so that a fair and cost effective solution can be reached.

Our award-winning specialist lawyers will explain your options for resolving matters so that you can make an informed choice about the best way forward for you and your family. This includes detailed and clear advice about potential outcomes, as well as information about which negotiation process will be most suitable for you.

In our experience, trying to reach agreement by exchange of solicitors’ letters is not always the most cost effective way to reach a settlement. We will explore with you the other options including round table and three room meetings, collaborative law and mediation – these are all ways of reaching a settlement without going though court.

All of our solicitors are members of Resolution, and are committed to resolving your case in a constructive and non-confrontational way.
