Civil disputes can arise from many situations
and can fall under almost all areas of UK law.


Buying or selling a house is a complicated task.
Let us help you take the stress out of moving.


Dying intestate can pose particular and
unwelcome problems for an unmarried partner.

Personal injury

A personal injury can include, for example,
an injury at work or in a traffic accident.

Powers of Attorney

Sadly, it is a fact of life that none of us know if
and when we may become incapacitated.

Landlord and Tenant

Whether you are a landlord or tenant, it is vital
that you are aware of your rights and obligations

Oaths and swearings

Some documents need to be sworn on oath,
such as affidavits or declarations.

Road traffic accidents

If you have been injured in a road traffic
accident you may be able to claim compensation.

Wills and Probate
