Family Law

Statistics show that relationships are breaking down at an increasing rate. At such times taking legal advice can seem an intimidating prospect. Here at Smith Partnership our dedicated family law team understands that feeling. We provide a friendly, approachable and professional service. We aim to be as accessible as possible for the genuine concerns and problems that arise - an understanding ear when you need it the most.


Our team provides a complete and confidential service in all areas of family law, servicing the needs of our clients across the Midlands from our offices at Derby, Burton, Swadlincote, Leicester and Stoke on Trent.

Our specialist team includes accredited members of the Law Society’s Family Law Panel and Resolution (previously Solicitors Family Law Association).

We can also offer methods of dispute resolution alternative to Court proceedings where appropriate, such as collaborative law. We encourage a conciliatory approach to resolution of disputes as far as the situation allows.

As an approved supplier of legal services we hold a franchise enabling publicly funded (Legal Aid) work to be carried out. This is subject to the particular circumstances of the case and financial position of the client.
