According to the Legal Ombudsman, who receive all complaints about solicitors, nearly a fifth (18%) of the 7,500 complaints that they resolved last year involved divorce or family law-related cases, making it the most complained about area of law in England and Wales.
He warned that some solicitors are failing to advise divorcees to settle courtroom battles before costs rise out of control because of the "emotional rawness" of those involved. In a report on the costs of separation, they said that in the economic downturn there is increasingly a tension between lawyers' financial self-interest in prolonging legal action and their responsibility to offer clients informed advice.
It is music to our ears to hear these scandalous practices being put in the spotlight, and we hope it will send people rushing through our doors, because at Hudson Law, as all our clients know, our entire family law ethos is about making sure our clients don’t fritter away their hard-earned money on legal fees and court costs. As long as we are paid for the work we do, we are happy, but our focus is getting our clients problems resolved as quickly and economically as possible. Quite often this also means that we can reduce the emotional trauma involved in divorce, separation and children issues.
We provide free initial meetings to give people the information they need to make informed decisions and to retain control, and we can often offer a fixed fee solution to make budgeting easier.
