Elite Law Solicitors
Equity House, 57 Hill Avenue, Amersham
Mediator | Collaborative Practitioner | Solicitor or legal executive
- Resolution accredited specialist
Chris has been a solicitor for over 30 years having read Law at Exeter University. He specialises in a wide range of family law matters, including divorce, financial matters arising from separation and arrangements for children.
He has considerable knowledge and practical know- how of court proceedings, often undertaking his own advocacy and has dealt with a wide range of cases, including high value cases.
He also recognises that family law cases often involve highly charged emotional issues which require sensitive handling and that an aggressive approach to such matters can often be counter productive, exacerbating what can be an already difficult situation. He is a keen promoter of alternatives to court process as a means of resolving such issues. He qualified over ten years ago as a collaborative lawyer, a process which enables separating couples to work together with their lawyers to resolve the problems that confront them, avoiding the expense and bitterness that court proceedings can create and, importantly, allowing the couple to make their own decisions as to the way forward.
Chris is also accredited by the Family Mediation Council as a family mediator and is able to bring to the mediation process his considerable experience and knowledge as a family lawyer.
