The skills of a local Preston Solicitor have been recognised by the UK's leading family law group - Resolution. Jane Nightingale, Family Lawyer at Forbes Solicitors, has recently gained Resolution accredited specialist status.
Jane comments, "As a Resolution member, I am committed to encouraging a non-confrontational approach to resolving family disputes. That way, both the emotional and financial costs of divorce or family breakdown are minimised for those involved."
Originally set up in 1999, the scheme is designed to help people who are facing family breakdown to make an informed choice when deciding which solicitor to appoint. To become a Resolution accredited specialist, lawyers have to agree to uphold the Resolution code of practice and to have passed a written test demonstrating a breadth of knowledge of Family Law issues and specialist knowledge in at least two areas of family law.
The family law team at Forbes Solicitors includes specialist Family Lawyers and Divorce Solicitors who offer advice on all areas of family law, including domestic violence, divorce, dividing family assets following marriage breakdown, cohabitation issues, ancillary relief, civil partnerships, child law and change of name deeds.
