Why use us

Why use us

The breakdown of a relationship is a stressful and worrying experience.

Incorrect advice or action, however well meaning, can put you at a disadvantage right from the start.  The quality of advice you receive and the way in which your case is handled can greatly improve the outcome for you.

Family Law Specialists

Williams Thompson is recognised as one of the top family law firms in the area.  With a team of specialist solicitors we are one of the largest family practices in the Bournemouth conurbation.  Such is our reputation within the legal profession that a number of solicitors firms in the area regularly recommend their clients to us.

The Quality of our Solicitors 

If you come to see us, your matter will be dealt with by one of our qualified and experienced family law Solicitors. We are experienced both in the law and in helping our clients through a difficult time. With our ‘£50 no obligation fixed fee interview’ you will have the opportunity to meet the Solicitor and will normally have the same Solicitor deal with the matter from start to finish. Surprisingly this is not always the case with other firms

Protecting your best interests

As your solicitors, our role is to act on your behalf and protect your best interests.  We can advise you on the various ways that your matter can be dealt with and we will always try to resolve your matter without causing unnecessary animosity. However at the end of the day we are on your side.

Whilst the majority of cases can be settled without going to court, if required we are able to represent you in court both locally and in London and are able to take a firm line to protect your interests when required.

Quality and accreditation

As well as many years of experience, our specialist solicitors have a whole series of accreditations. All are members of Resolution which is a family law organisation committed to non-confrontational negotiation.  Three of our solicitors are also qualified Collaborative lawyers and two of them are qualified Mediators. We are therefore well placed to explain these alternative methods of dealing with matters to you.
