Claire Chisnall

Solicitor, Ilkley & Leeds

I am very focused on my clients and identifying their desired outcome from the beginning. I advise on all elements of divorce and work hard to resolve any financial and children matters as quickly and cost-effectively as possible.


Claire has advised both married and cohabiting clients on a number of issues, including divorce, financial settlements and contact with their children following separation.

Claire has experience in cases involving applications for internal and external relocation of children and complex children matters involving the allegations of domestic violence and drug and alcohol abuse. Claire has also advised clients on pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements and the issue of spousal maintenance.


Claire is very focused on her clients and ensuring that she fully understands their needs from the outset to ensure the best possible outcome. It is important to her that her clients feel that she has  understood their issues and what is important to them.

Claire is very friendly and approachable but also has a no-nonsense approach. She understands that all clients have different needs and understanding of the legal process and will therefore tailor her approach to each individual client.

Training & employment

Claire previously had a successful career within the mortgage industry before embarking on a career change into law. She completed her law degree with first class honours and LPC with a distinction in Leeds and qualified in early 2018.

Outside of work

Claire enjoys spending time with her family and friends, attending her local gym and walking. She would love to travel more in the future both in Europe and further afield, ideally starting with Asia and America.

She really enjoys a challenge and took part in Tough Mudder in 2018 and has taken part in half marathons for charity in the past.
