At Harrogate Family Law, our clients come first. Every piece of advice we give, and every action we take, has our clients interests firmly at the centre. Everything we do is geared toward making sure our clients get the outcome they deserve. 

Choosing a solicitor to help you through difficult circumstances can feel overwhelming, whether it’s for you personally, or you’re recommending a firm to your clients. As we’ve been shortlisted for Niche Law Firm of the Year, for the fourth year running at the Yorkshire Legal Awards, it made me think about the firm as a whole, and in this week’s blog, I’m reflecting on some of the ways in which we’re helping clients look to a brighter future.  

Establishing a niche

When it comes to the law, there are a number of different fields and specialisms: property, criminal and employment, to name just a few. By specialising solely in family law, our team is able to continually build on our knowledge and experience, and focus on providing the very best legal advice as and when our clients need it. 

Ultimately, we’ve found our niche and this works for our clients. 

Varied expertise

Though finding a niche is important, having varied expertise within that niche is critical. Family law is a term covering anything from a relatively ‘straightforward’ divorce or separation, to dealing with the arrangements for the children, securing a financial settlement that works and assisting clients who are dealing with a narcissistic spouse or partner. And that’s by no means an exhaustive list. 

At Harrogate Family Law, we’ve got solicitors who have specialist accreditations in pensions and complex financial remedies. You’ll find expertise in matters involving high net worth, arrangements for the children and property disputes between unmarried couples.

Every case is different, no one client is the same, and our varied skills and expertise allow us to meet the needs of each of them.  

The right attitude

As a family law firm, we deal with a high number of complex cases. Client’s trust us with the things that matter to them, and they need to feel comfortable doing so. Clients might be feeling vulnerable, nervous about the future, or fearful of judgement from others. 

The law firm clients choose to work with absolutely must put them first. It needs to have the kind of attitude and approach that makes clients feel comfortable, respected and supported. 

This is what we pride ourselves on here at Harrogate Family Law. Respect, effective management of expectations and wanting only the very best outcomes – all of this helps us to provide the best possible service. 

An individual approach

As with most things in life, there is no one size fits all. Family law is no exception. Every client will benefit from a different path, different advice and different guidance. What might be the right decision for one client won’t be the best thing for another. 

Getting to know the matters we’re working on inside and out is part of our strength. We’re supporting our clients on their journeys from beginning to end, whatever that might look like. Whether it’s a situation where the court’s intervention is necessary, or exploring other options such as negotiation or mediation, we’re here to help our clients every step of the way. 

I’m very proud of the team here at Harrogate Family Law and everything we’ve achieved. To have a chat about working together, simply get in touch with us today.
