Our Family Legal Services fixed fees are set out on our Time and Cost page
Our family legal team is headed by our Donna Riley and we offer you a fully accredited service.
- Donna is a Specialist Family Lawyer and a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives ( FILEX).
- She is a Resolution Accredited Specialist with particular specialisms in Private Children Law and Complex Financial Remedies resulting from the breakdown of a marriage or partnership.
- She has been a member of Resolution since 1999 and is a member of the Law Society Family Law Accreditation Panel.
Donna has specialised exclusively in family law since 1997 and has extensive experience and knowledge in relation to family law matters. She receives repeat referrals and recommendations from existing and former clients. As a member of Resolution, Donna aims to resolve family disputes in a constructive, amicable and non-confrontation way. In our view taking an overly aggresseive approach only serves to drive up cost unneccesarily.
Donna joined Salmons in February 2013 and has previously worked in Staffordshire and South Cheshire from where she still receives a regular volume of client referrals.
Donna deals with all aspects of family law including, but not limited to, family financial disputes (including property and pensions), divorce, cohabitation matters, domestic violence, civil partnership disputes and private children law proceedings, such as, Child Arrangements Orders which relate to issues surrounding with whom the children should live and whom they should see (previously known as Contact and Residence Orders). Donna can provide our clients with tailored legal advice in relation to their particular circumstances and can offer a range of fixed fees to assist where applicable.
Donna can see clients at a venue local and convenient to the client if need be.
