Chichester Collaborative Lawyers Solicitors

We would like to introduce ourselves to you.

We are a group of solicitors who have joined together to provide an alternative service to our clients whose relationship has broken down and try to avoid the traditional, often destructive journey that we have seen many clients endure.  We all have many years experience in advising on separation, divorce, children, financial matters and practical issues involved in the breakdown of a relationship.

We are experts in all aspects of family law and have trained in Collaborative Law by Resolution.  The aim is to all work together to resolve disputes amicably without going to court.

Each person appoints their own Collaborative Lawyer and instead of negotiating in the traditional way by letter or phone, we all meet together to work things out face to face. Our role is to assist in reducing conflict throughout the process, help identify issues and facilitate negotiations.

We recognise that people may be nervous especially for their first meeting.  However each of you will have your own solicitor by your side throughout the entire process.  Collaborative Law puts you in charge and enables you to examine your own priorities and needs.  It enables you to negotiate an amicable and mutually agreeable settlement with support, advice and guidance throughout the process from your Collaborative Lawyer.

We believe that you can still receive expert, sound advice without having to through the painful and lengthy correspondence or even court hearings.

There is an alternative, and we hope that we can assist you.
