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.

Testimonials

What our clients say

Great service especially during Covid.

Mr & Mrs M Barber - Stockport

Been with North Ainley for many years. Service is always excellent. Mrs J Gregory was wonderful.

Mr & Mrs K Sisodia - Oldham

North Ainley provided a first class reliable service. My house purchase was not straight forward but North Ainley dealt with the difficulties with the minimum of fuss and the maximum efficiency.

Prof R Davidson - Belfast

Given the difficulties presented by COVID and "remote working" I thought North Ainley's performance in achieving completion in 12 weeks was excellent. Thank you.

Mr & mrs F Middleton - Cheadle

Very very good service in a lockdown time. Both the house sale and the probate service was excellent.

Ms C Potter - Oldham

We could not fault the service we received from Jill and Kirsty in relation to both the sale and purchase. I would highly recommend North Ainley and if we require further legal assistance in the future, we know where to come.

Mr & Mrs L Oliver - Saddleworth

Jill Gregory and the team were and continue to be fantastic. First class service and will certainly be using your company again when the need arises.

Mr & Mrs M Scholes - Oldham

Jill has been amazing helping us through a very stressful time. We have, as a family, used Jill's professional services before and very likely to be using her again in the next twelve months. She is absolutely brilliant.

Mrs K Eplett - Oldham

Vinesh and team did an excellent job. Keep up the good work.

Morningside Properties Ltd - Ashton Under Lyne

Vinesh was a fantastic support all throughout the process and made what can be a challenging process much more 'enjoyable'. I would absolutely recommend Vinesh and North Ainley.

Mr M Forrest - Ashton Under Lyne

Special thanks to Jill Gregory. She was particularly helpful and approachable. Jill went above and beyond her role to ensure we completed our house purchase.

Mr S Hardy & Ms H Byron - Oldham

I had an excellent experience with North Ainley and will certainly use future conveyancing.

Mr S Callan - Newry

Kirsty was my day to day contact with the sale of my house and I cannot commend her enough. She was super efficient, professional and communicated with us regularly throughout the entire process.

Mr & Mrs A Brough - Oldham

Excellent service.

Mrs S Clegg - Oldham

Thank you very much.

Mr R & Mrs H H Thompson - Bacup

Jill Gregory was absolutely brilliant from my first phone call through to our (slightly rushed) completion. To do so and maintain such a high level of service with a very comforting manner throughout the pandemic was so very reassuring as first time buyers. Thank you.

Mr & Mrs W Chaloner - Kings Lynn

Very impressive - as usual!

Mr & Mrs J Broadbent - Oldham

The level of service I received from Vinesh and his team was outstanding. Thank you so much.

Mr & Mrs M F Smith - Sutton Coldfield
