Lorraine qualified in 1998 and specialises exclusively in family law.

After working for several North West firms, Lorraine was recruited by Aaron & Partners in June 2004 to establish a family law department. She was made a partner in 2006.

Lorraine has extensive experience in dealing with and advising upon all aspects of matrimonial and family law, primarily divorce cases and medium to high financial settlements. These cases are often technically complex and involve diverse business/personal assets.

Lorraine also deals with children issues, including residence and contact applications, cohabitation disputes and agreements and prenuptial agreements.

Business people and fellow professionals represent a large proportion of Lorraine’s client base. Her attention to detail and clear, robust, yet empathetic approach has ensured that many of her referrals result from recommendations by previous clients.

Lorraine is a committee member of the Cheshire branch of Resolution – the nationwide association of lawyers committed to amicable resolution of family and matrimonial disputes. She has degrees in law (University of Sheffield) and humanities (University of Ulster), and has also studied history and American constitutional law at the University of North Carolina.

I have received first class legal representation from Lorraine Saunders from March 2011 to the present day. At my first meeting with Miss Saunders, I immediately felt that she is a warm, friendly and caring person who understood my fragile emotional state and the problems I was having.
Miss Saunders is very professional, hard working and thorough and it gave me great confidence to know that she was always available to give advice and support, even out of office hours. I therefore would not hesitate to recommend Miss Saunders to any prospective clients.
I am writing to express my gratitude for the outstanding service I have received throughout my recent divorce proceedings. I chose Lorraine Saunders following a recommendation from a colleague. I most certainly made the right decision.
I just wanted to thank you for successfully negotiating on my behalf to reach the financial settlement we have reached this week. You’ve really helped me a great deal.
Lorraine and her team were always at the end of the phone when I needed them to give me advice, responding to my queries within a couple of hours… Through an extremely difficult two years I feel that I have received professional advice and support on every level of this process, with a resolution that I was very satisfied with.
