- Resolution accredited specialist
- Offers fixed fee interview
I am an accredited mediator and family lawyer with 20 years’ experience of advising people on family law matters. I am highly regarded by the UK’s leading law directory, The Legal 500, having been recommended in the Guide every year since 2013 and this is what they say about my expertise: “Claire Colbert is ‘outstanding in every respect, showing consistent dedication and commitment that is both impressive and reassuring”.
As an Accredited Mediator I explore options to resolve issues between couples, often using skills acquired whilst practising as a family law solicitor. I am qualified to meet with children during the mediation process, where appropriate.
I work from our Oxford and London offices, dealing with all of the legal aspects of relationship breakdown including divorce, financial issues and disputes regarding children. I also advise clients on cohabitation agreements, pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements. What sets me apart from other family solicitors is that I help clients to reach agreements amicably and swiftly.
I deal with complex financial disputes, often involving inherited assets and family businesses. I also have vast experience in dealing with School Appeals and Child Maintenance Appeals and tribunals.
My achievements as a specialist family solicitor were acknowledged nationally at Jordan’s Family Law Awards in October 2013, when I was named Family Law Associate Solicitor of the year.
I am the author of the Which Guide to Divorce and Splitting up (2010) and the Which divorce guide 2015.
