My awards and achievements

Rubina Vohra continues to head-up the private client family team, as well as joint leader of the wider family team.

Rubina has over 20 years experience, continues to be an accredited member of the Family Law Advanced Accreditation Scheme and is continually a recommended Lawyer for the Legal 500. She retains a strong reputation for being pragmatic, straight-talking, and client-focussed, with the majority of her instructions being from personal recommendation. She is known to be able to handle all types of private law cases and will not shy away from difficult cases that require time, a keen eye and research.

Rubina has an expertise with divorce & finance cases, including those with a foreign element and has experience in ringfencing non-matrimonial assets.

She also deals with complex children cases where there has been complex domestic abuse and a finding of fact hearing is required, private law children cases with alternative fertility elements and parental alienation.

She has seen growing instructions from children cases with same sex couples where proper procedure for recognition of parental responsibility has or has not been followed.

Rubina is also a Legal 500 Recommended Lawyer.

Both Rubina and her assistant Melanie were fantastic from my first appointment. Both were incredibly helpful and friendly and professional. Very efficient and at all times they kept me well informed, progressed the matter quickly and proactively challenged the opposing solicitor where barriers were put in place by them. They made a sad and difficult situation and process that much easier.

Mr. H

The Forbes team helped me out through a divorce. They were informative, helpful and sincere through a very stressful time. Without their help I would have struggled. Rubina and Melanie were never pushy, but offered guidance and options in what I could do. Their professional advice was second to none, but empathetic throughout the process during a very testing time through the covid pandemic.

Mr. Whalley

Fantastic service, was informed of every step, very supportive, staff were always friendly and willing to help. Would recommend Forbes for any legal advice.

I have been a client with Forbes Solicitors since November 2022 and I can confidently say that everything was always dealt with professionally and to a high standard. I felt I could always reach out and speak to someone about my case if needed. I was made to feel at ease and fully supported during one of the most stressful periods of my life and this helped me carry on when sometimes I felt like giving up and for this I will forever be grateful. Hopefully I wont need to be a client again but if I do I know that I will always get a quality service and would not hesitate to use them again.
