What it will cost

When it comes to family law, where you often need to share the very personal details of your relationship, it’s vital to choose solicitors you trust and feel comfortable with. For this reason we offer a free initial meeting during which you can get a feel for whether you’re comfortable with us handling your affairs.

After that, and where possible, we will endeavour to provide a fixed price quotation for our services and clear guidance on any further costs.

What our clients say

“Woodfords represented me in my divorce case which turned out to be long and difficult. At all times I felt I received considered and professional advice which made the whole process much easier to bear. Even against a larger and more powerful firm Woodfords was technically and legally much better. Thanks.”

“Went through a difficult divorce and found Woodfords to be very sensible and knowledgeable.”

“I used Woodfords for 3 years for 3 complex legal matters and I can say without doubt that Woodfords were extremely professional from the initial introductory meeting to the finish. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone in matters relating to divorce, family law and property conveyancing.”
