G Lewis & Co Solicitors can handle a wide range of disputes and we can provide practical and specialist advice with the aim of resolving your problem quickly and cost-effectively. Wherever possible, we always seek to settle disputes by correspondence or negotiation so that you obtain the best result at the cheapest possible method, but we also understand the impact on you. We will always endeavour to minimise the stress of such proceedings on you. The breakdown of any relationship or family has an emotional impact and so, we always try to find a therapeutic solution to reduce any animosity and focus on positive steps to help you move on in a constructive way.
Some of our services are outlined below. Call us for a discussion of your case or a quote on 01582 486429.
The Early Stages
The breadth of our family work means we have a wealth of experience to draw on, which informs our understanding of what are often complex and difficult situations. When the case needs it, we can call on additional expertise such as Housing issues, Immigration issues, Civil Litigation or Probate issues.
We always see if an agreement can be reached between the parties in order to reduce costs and preserve assets, through mediation or other means. However, where mediation is not an option, we work hard to obtain a fair solution as quickly as possible and put the matter into Court as quickly as possible.
Where there has been violence or emotional abuse in a relationship, we provide the distance you need from your partner while you recover your life and your financial position. We realise that in these circumstances, you simply want to move on as quickly as possible and we act swiftly to make sure this is the case.

Using a solicitor rather than an unlicensed adviser or doing the matter yourself brings with it a number of advantages. Here are three straightforward reasons for using a solicitor, although there are many more.
Firstly, you have the advantage of years of legal experience. This means that we know the quickest and most productive ways to progress your matter to the conclusion. We believe in solutions rather than problems. We also make sure that we are up to date with all the most recent legal changes so that you are not caught out by those changes.
Secondly, we have significant experience of negotiating the best possible settlements for our clients in divorce matters, maintaining a positive relationships between the parties and avoiding acrimony.
Thirdly, we provide you with some distance between your family problems and the legal side of dealing with them. Sometimes in the heat of the moment, it is impossible to think clearly about your situation and be objective, we provide you with that unbiased point of view.

The best way of testing whether you need a solicitor is to call and discuss your case with us on a no strings attached basis. Tell us what you want and need, and we will tell you the best way to do it, how much it will cost and how long it will take.
We look to take some of the stress out of what is probably already a very stressful situation.
