FM FAMILY LAW
We are expert divorce, family law and mediation specialists.
FM Family Law are specialists in family law and mediation. We are a team of 6 family lawyers and mediators with over 90 years’ experience between us. Divorce and family law is our passion and our vocation.
If you are experiencing relationship or parenting problems, separation or divorce, we are here to help you. We are professional, passionate and enthusiastic and we work with conscience, conviction and authenticity. Most of all we are sensitive to your needs, build relationships with you and support you to achieve the best outcomes for you and your family. We will give you the best legal representation whilst providing excellent value for money. We can achieve this because we work from small and efficient offices with fewer overheads than larger less specialist law firms.
Our work also includes disputes about children, mediation, prenuptial agreements, post nuptial agreements, cohabitation agreements, property disputes and inheritance disputes.
Our core values underpin the work we do.
