Why Use Rainscourt Family Law Solicitors?

We understand that when choosing your legal representation, you may contact a number of other solicitors. We suggest that when meeting other firms you ask the following:

  1. Can they guarantee that your case will only be dealt with by the solicitor responsible?  Or will some of the work be carried out by people not qualified as solicitors e.g. legal executives, paralegals, legal secretaries, trainees. At Rainscourt Family Law Solicitors, we guarantee that all your work will be carried out by our solicitors.
  2. Do they specialise solely in family law? Or do they advise on other areas in their practice? We specialise exclusively in private family law.
  3. How often will you be updated as to your costs in the matter? Some firms will allow their clients to build up substantial costs without keeping them regularly updated. We will keep you regularly updated on your costs, usually on a weekly basis.
  4. Do they charge for bill preparation, or any correspondence or time spent dealing with billing matters? We will never charge you to raise an invoice or for any time spent dealing with billing queries.

Our experience in this field means that we can guide you through this process swiftly and we will be able to tell you how best to secure the outcome that you are looking for.
