Matthew Waite is an accredited member of the Law Society Family Law Panel and a member of Resolution (formerly the Solicitors’ Family Law Association), with 25 years’ experience of divorce and other family law work.

We are committed to the constructive resolution of family disputes. The vast majority of our cases result in a favourable negotiated settlement but where this is not possible, we will represent your interests firmly and ensure that you receive expert representation.

Any relationship breakdown is painful and stressful. Matthew Waite will guide you through the legal maze so as to ensure the best possible outcome for you. He offers a specialist and expert service in all family matters ranging from pre-nuptial agreements to divorce, financial settlements, disputes relating to children and Inheritance Act claims on death.

We offer a fixed fee initial consultation at a cost of £160 plus VAT where we will assess your case; advise as to the options available to you; any immediate steps you should take and the likely costs involved. We do not undertake Legal Aid work.
