  • Family Law – relating to parenting arrangements, divorce, child support and property disputes.
  • Personal Injury – for claims related to road accidents, medical negligence, public liability and faulty products.
  • Wills, Estates & Probates – for will preparation, inheritance claims and administering estates.
  • Victims of Crime – where treatment, rehabilitation or time off work is required to recover from exposure to a crime. These victims are now eligible for financial reimbursement through the VOC Compensation Scheme.
