You may have existing solicitors assisting you with your family law case. The relationship you have with those advisers may be largely satisfactory but there may be reasons why you feel the need to have a second legal opinion:
We can help you if you find yourself in one of these situations. We will examine the facts of your case and assess the advice that you are being given. In most cases we will not need your existing file so your existing solicitors will not know that you are seeking a second legal opinion.
We will tell you, clearly and comprehensively, if we take a different view to your existing solicitors or if we agree with the action that they are taking on your behalf. In some cases, the strategy being pursued on behalf of the client is sound but the solicitor in question may not have taken the time to explain why a particular strategy is being adopted.
We appreciate that it is crucial that you feel that you are in control of your case which is why we will ensure that we give you a complete understanding of the law as it applies to your circumstances and why a particular solution would be desirable in your case.
By providing a second legal opinion, we may allow you to regain the confidence of knowing that your existing solicitor is on the right track. Alternatively, we can provide you with the right questions to ask of your existing solicitor to test that a particular strategy is in your best interests.
There are occasions when, following advice from us by way of a second legal opinion, you may wish to transfer conduct of your matter from your existing solicitors to Family Law Partners. We would be happy to assist should that be your decision.
We are committed to advising you of all the options available to you, and (unlike other family lawyers) will support you with solutions that avoid the traditional court process.Get in touch
