For couples who really seek a rational solution, and want to reduce the pain of family breakdowns, it offers the best way ahead. Collaborative Law allows you and your former partner to reach shared solutions and agreements away from the Court, giving you more control of the situation.

Client Reviews

I would like to thank you (Emma Pearmaine) for representing me during my divorce. I was very impressed with the excellent service I received, and found your positive and fair approach to my situation, both supportive and helpful during a difficult time. You took time to listen and advise me in a direct and informative way, and I would not hesitate to recommend your services to others.

Over the past two years I have been going through a very complicated and stressful divorce. Emma Hopkins-Jones dealt with every aspect of my case extremely professionally and had fantastic knowledge of every issue I faced. This included the actual divorce and financial proceedings, plus the complications of various relationships and keeping my children away from any such pressures. The whole team at Simpson Millar and other colleagues in mediation gave me excellent professional advice. I was kept informed at every stage and as I have a busy career myself, I found the support and communication to be very helpful. I would like to thank Emma for everything she has done throughout the whole process and would recommend her services to anyone.

Thank you very much for allyour help over the past several monthly. Your professionalism and dilligence are most admirable and i was lucky to have you representing me.
