What to Look for In a Family Law Practice

Posted on: 10 December 2013 by Goodwins Family Law Solicitors

When you’re choosing a family law practice to help you resolve any disputes you may have, there are a number of factors that you need to consider to ensure you get the best possible results. From accreditations to the amount of experience they have, everything is important when it comes to family legal matters. This article will inform you of some of the aspects you need to look for in your family law practice.



It is incredibly important that any family law practice you choose has the correct accreditation or accreditations for the area of law that you need it to deal with.

Here at Goodwins Family Law, we are members of the Family Law Society – meaning we have all the necessary accreditations to deal with all aspects of family law. The law society states that to gain such accreditations, ‘members will have shown that they will maintain a high level of knowledge, skills, experience and practice in the area of family law’.



Choosing an experienced law firm is hugely beneficial to you and others involved in any
family law proceedings. The more experience a practice has, the more well prepared they are to deal with the various fields of family law. At Goodwins Family Law, we have vast range of services and experience that spans across a range of family law areas. Our team are experts in these areas and will approach each individual case with the discretion and sensitivity that it requires. Our mix of skill, knowledge and experience is what makes us one of London’s leading family law practices.



Although it seems obvious, having a family law service that is realistic with you about everything from costs to the outcome of the case is vital, as you need to be prepared for both the best and worst case outcomes from your proceedings. We will discuss thoroughly with you any charges or fees you can expect to incur, and we will be completely realistic with you about the potential outcomes of your case, whilst maintaining the appropriate level of sensitivity.



A good family law firm should employ a number of highly trained, fully accredited staff who are experienced in the different areas of family law. You need a law firm whose experience and expertise is equal across all fields of family law.


Here at Goodwins, our team is comprised of highly trained, fully qualified individuals who are experienced in all fields of family law, with their wealth of experience as a team making  Goodwins Family Law Solicitors one of the leading family law practices in London.

Choosing a Family Law practice can be a strange and stressful task, especially if you don’t know what you should be looking for in the first place. The aforementioned factors are key elements that you should be checking for when electing your family law practice, and here at Goodwins Family Law Solicitors, we are proud to possess all of these attributes and more.
