The absolute focus of any family law solicitor must be to seek to resolve disputes in a way that:


  • minimises any negative impact upon the client and their children
  • empowers the client to find sustainable and long-term solutions that work for the client and their children
  • achieves an appropriate resolution in a timely and efficient manner
  • keep costs to a minimum


To achieve that goal, we will explore with every client all avenues available to resolve their circumstances whether by way of mediation, collaborative law, lawyer assisted negotiations or otherwise.

As a trained and practising mediator and collaborative lawyer, Donagh is very well placed to advise on the merits of each possible pathway to resolution.  This is always undertaken in a manner designed to identify the pathway which best suits the circumstances of the individual client, even if that means choosing a pathway that may not be favoured by the other person involved.
