Working Together

Our experienced family law team provides specialist advice in relation to all areas of family and matrimonial law.

Alison Winterbottom, who has 25 years’ experience and is a expert in this field, leads the team. Alison is a member of Resolution, a national organisation of family lawyers and other professionals committed to the constructive resolution of issues arising from relationship breakdown. She is accredited by Resolution as a specialist and she qualified as a Collaborative Lawyer in 2010, enabling her to assist clients in resolving family disputes through a series of face to face meetings and collaborative discussions. We recognise that relationship breakdown is often a difficult and distressing time. Our family team offers a caring and professional approach and will provide you with clear and practical advice to assist you in achieving the best outcome possible.

We understand that one of the main concerns when instructing a Solicitor is often the cost. We offer a free no obligation initial appointment which can be arranged at your convenience (we do not hold drop in clinics which can be very public). This appointment is not time limited and is completely confidential. We will provide detailed advice and explore with you the many options available for resolution.

We are fair and transparent on costs and an estimate is provided at the initial meeting. A full, detailed and easily understandable breakdown of the work done accompanies every invoice sent to you. We are committed to providing a first class service tailored to your individual circumstances and needs. We are flexible and can accommodate out of hours appointments and telephone discussions where necessary. We are based in Oldham Town Centre and our office is easily accessible from Saddleworth, Manchester, and Tameside.

It's a difficult time for us all, yet I felt every aspect of the issue was dealt with very well. Thanks.

We spoke to Cassie on a number of occasions and she always explained everything really well. We found her approachable and friendly and didn't speak to us in legal terms, making it easy to understand. We have already recommended you to a friend.
