Family Law

Robert Lunn and Lowth are Solicitors who can advise and guide you through a family situation in a constructive and non-confrontational way. Our family partner, Edward Jeffery, is a member of Resolution, which is a national association of family Solicitors. Resolution operate codes of conduct designed to encourage a realistic and co-operative approach to resolving family and related issues.


We will normally provide estimates of fees for particular areas of work at the outset of a matter so that you have understanding and control of what fees are likely to be incurred.

Some family matters are better dealt with by mediation. Mediation is often confused with marriage counselling or Relate. Mediation is in fact a system where a trained professional mediator will meet both parties face to face to try and resolve matters in a constructive way.

We will be happy to refer you to mediation if we think that is the best approach. We will always, and we mean always, try to find you a way that is cost effective and realistic. There is overwhelming evidence that an agreement that is reached by negotiation will be more likely to be respected and implemented by those involved.
