Family Law

Leadenhall Law Group’s Family Law department is accredited by various professional bodies, highlighting our position as the standard bearers in Family Law. Katherine McNally heads the department and with 20 years’ experience has an outstanding reputation for providing expert legal advice and representation in all aspects of Family Law. Joining Katherine, is David Roper who is 9 years qualified and highly regarded in his field, bringing a calm and reassuring presence to legal proceedings. Our solicitors are on the sought after Children Law panel accredited by the Law Society meaning we can act for parents and children during care proceedings. The department are accredited members of Resolution and Collaborative. We also operate a Free Legal Clinic at Earlham Early Years Centre in Norwich which is a valuable way of assisting our local community and their legal needs. 

Katherine and David are ably assisted by Fiona Faulds. As well as managing their respective diaries and keeping the department running smoothly, Fiona is expanding her training in Family Law, assisting with pre care proceeding meetings and clerking for our solicitors in court. If you find yourself requiring a family solicitor, it is important that you are represented by the very best solicitors, as by the nature of family law, it will probably be the most important legal instruction you will make. We ensure all our clients receive friendly and expert advice, in our safe and welcoming environment. We want to get to know our clients and establish a relationship from the beginning, which is why we always offer a free 30 minute consultation before we begin to act for you formally. 

As well as our introductory free consultation, we are contracted by the Legal Aid Agency so we may be able to arrange Legal Aid Funding, subject to your income and the merits of your case. We can advise you as to whether or not you are eligible at your initial contact with us.

If for any reason you are not eligible for legal aid, you can instruct us on a private basis. We strive to make sure our fee scales are competitive and affordable for all income levels.
