Morning, I work closely with a female family / divorce lawyer (I am a lawyer in a firm called Keystone Law and work locally around Nortchote Road although our offices are in central London, our model usually means we are a little cheaper). I am a litigation lawyer *and a mum of a 2 year old!!). My colleague deals with all of the family/divorce enquiries I get and she is excellent and looks after people really well. She has handled a few situations for girlfriends of mine. Always difficult, but she has always been very supportive.
She is also happy to provide a free consultation, so that your friend can have the comfort of understanding how it all works and raise any questions before ploughing in.
If you or your friend would like to chat, please call me: 07824 709 480.
Best wishes, Alison
