HFL was placed in Band One in York, Hull and the surrounding region and is the only specialist family law firm in North Yorkshire to be ranked in the highest tier.
The achievement follows a fantastic showing by HFL in the Legal 500 guide back in September, which named it the top family law firm in North Yorkshire for the second year running.
I founded HFL six years ago to bring big city family law expertise to the Harrogate district and the latest endorsement by Chambers will reassure local families that high quality expert legal advice is available on their doorstep.
There was a time when technically excellent legal advice was only available to those who had the time and money to consult big city firms. That’s just not the case any more and local people now have the benefit of Harrogate Family Law’s experienced team who can support them through separation and divorce as well as advising on issues such as arrangements for children, cohabitation and pre-nuptial agreements.
Crucially, we are specialists in negotiation and in complex financial and property matters, something that really sets us apart in the region.
Chambers UK singled out me and my colleague Ellie Foster for special mention in the new 2017 guide, listing us both as notable practitioners in our field.
The most important element of the latest endorsement is the fact that it is based on feedback from people who have used our services. Chambers and Legal 500 base their decisions on feedback from clients and local professionals who regularly work alongside us. That’s what makes these ranking so useful for anyone looking to instruct a local family lawyer.
We were delighted to have received particular praise for our approachability as well as our specialist knowledge of the law. The 2017 edition of Chambers UK lists me as a specialist in advising medium to high net worth individuals on financial divorce proceedings. Ellie is singled out for her expertise in complex divorce cases involving pensions, trusts and cross-border issues.
Eminent family solicitors Claudia Gilham and Emma Doughty are also part of our Harrogate-based team, which offers the option of Collaborative Family Law and, as all the team are members of family law body Resolution, we are committed to resolving relationship issues through negotiation rather than through the courts wherever possible.
Divorce is not a one size fits all process and we have won significant praise from clients and professionals alike for our tailored approach which sees us adapting our service to accommodate the needs and wishes of the individuals and families we work with.
