    Divorce lawyers in St Albans

    One of the largest family law offices in St Albans, our four-strong team of divorce lawyers is headed up by Managing Partner, Claire McParland. Claire is joined by Partner, James Scarborough and Solicitors, Mel Quinn and Laura Webster. 

    We are highly experienced in the complexities faced by families and individuals dealing with a family law issue. We frequently work with clients to resolve complex financial matters with multiple assets and advise concerning where children live and how they spend time with their parents post-divorce.   

    Our clients range from high-net-worth families with substantial assets, income and investments through to professional families and stay at home parents across St Albans and Arkley, Berkhamsted, Harpenden and other surrounding areas.

    By your side 

    We combine our keen legal knowledge with a personable approach and client care. We actively work towards achieving an out-of-court settlement. However, we appreciate this is not possible, so when required, we are highly experienced in ligation to achieve a fair resolution. 

    We tailor our approach and legal advice to the unique needs of each client. We will guide you through the practical, emotional and legal aspects of divorce (and other types of separation), from the very start of the divorce process and over the finish line.

    While our divorce solicitors have a reputation for being expert litigators, court proceedings can add unnecessary time, expense and stress to a divorce or separation.  We offer out of court (alternative dispute resolution) routes: mediation, arbitration and collaborative law, which allow each spouse to find solutions and reach agreements on finances, any children involved and other family issues.  In addition to supporting our clients through the legal side of divorce, we always apply an empathetic approach and encourage reaching out to our network of family support professionals if needed.  This includes including coaches, therapists and parenting groups.

    Protecting your financial position

    We work alongside our in-house accounting team, who have a breadth of specialist experience,  to provide a clear picture of the assets in your marriage to create the optimum financial settlement.
