Family Law Solicitors Chester

Family Law Solicitors in Chester

We are a market leading firm of family law Solicitors in Chester & Shrewsbury known for our expertise in high value and complex cases.

The top independent legal directories, Chambers UK and Legal 500, recommend many of our family lawyers as do Citywealth and clients for whom we have acted.

How We Work

Our expert solicitors provide bespoke advice across a wide range of family matters with a focus on the financial aspects of relationship breakdown and disputes concerning children.

We take pride in the speed and quality of our advice and actions. The combination of experience, expertise and its effective delivery results in the exceptional service for which our family team is renowned.

Our lawyers will always provide objective, realistic and practical advice. They draw on their experience to provide an early assessment of the likely outcome of each case.

Many of our clients are married or in a civil partnership – others are not. The law and practice which applies where the parties are living with one another is complex. Our family team offer expert and constructive help whatever your circumstances.

The team has a great deal of life experience as well as technical expertise. A number of us have been through divorce and family breakdown. This means we have first hand knowledge of the stress and difficulties which often arise. Our experience and expertise means we can provide practical tips to reduce conflict and avoid common pitfalls.

You will find us empathetic, strategic and pragmatic. We aim to put you in control at what we know is a difficult and stressful time for our clients and their families.

Our objective is to ensure each client achieves the best outcome for them by the most appropriate means and to apply our expertise as efficiently as possible for their benefit. We offer a range of approaches including round table negotiation and mediation but are not slow to litigate when necessary. Our team understand many clients prefer to avoid a Court appearance and will work with you to chart the appropriate course.

Our Family Law Expertise

We have a great deal of experience of cases involving complex business structures, inherited wealth, trusts and “hidden” assets. Many of our clients enjoy a high profile and all value our discretion. The private life of each of our clients remains private. This is why you will not find any cases studies here or mention of any matters in which we have acted.  Our clients’ affairs are confidential to them and the lawyer here looking after their interests.

Our Family team advises and acts for individuals from across the UK and overseas. We deliver expertise of a quality that can be found in London, Birmingham and Manchester but at a significantly lower cost.

We also offer wealth protection measures such as Pre Nuptial and Cohabitation Agreements. These ensure your future and that of any children is secure should the worst happen.

We are flexible and innovative in our approach to funding family cases.

Care is taken to monitor the number and type of cases we handle to ensure we have time for each client and their particular concerns.

All members of our Family team offer initial advice by phone or email without charge or obligation so you can be confident we are the right fit and will look after you and your interests.

For all your family law legal advice needs Aaron & Partners can help you achieve the right outcomes for you and your family, whether you are looking for family solicitors in Chester, Shrewsbury, Manchester or further afield.

You have shown the utmost professionalism in every way. Your skill in being “one step ahead” of the other side and client care is excellent. I have and will continue to recommend your superb service to friends and clients. I switched my legal team and have absolutely no regrets in hiring you. Your knowledge and quality of advice is excellent which breeds my confidence in representing me in court.

A unique rare solicitor team headed by Mr Barge,  combining professionalism and compassion for their client’s needs and circumstances.

Very knowledgeable and ‘no-nonsense’ approach. It has been a pretty gruelling time, emotionally, but your calm professionalism along with your very sympathetic and understanding approach has supported me through it.

Richard Barge and his team at Aaron & Partners have been helpful and empathetic in dealing with my divorce. Richard is has certainly helped me through a very difficult time. A very prompt and efficient service, backed up by first class advice means that I would not hesitate to recommend them; they certainly go the extra mile.

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.
