Emmersons Solicitors Managing Director Jacqueline Emmerson is head of the Family Law Department and is a member of the Law Society's Specialist Family Law Panel and Resolution.
She is one of a limited number of solicitors in the area who deals with Collaborative Family Law. She specialises in high net worth cases often including business assets.
At Emmersons Solicitors we can offer you Family Law Specialists in both Sunderland and Newcastle. However, we do represent clients based all over the UK as well as Expats living abroad. We understand that the breakdown of a marriage or relationship can be a very difficult time. It is for that reason that we provide you with a sympathetic, but also practical, approach to help you deal with the sensitive issues affecting you and your family if you are separating or divorcing.
Our specialist Family Lawyers are here when you need us.
We regularly negotiate complex divorce settlements including the distribution of business assets, pensions, investments and property. We can also help you with cohabitation disputes, maintenance, prenuptial agreements, dissolution and transgender issues.
Our Family lLaw and Divorce Law specialists deal with children's matters such as where a child will live, how often they see both of their parents, where they will stay during holidays and so on. We regularly act for grandparents who wish to see their grandchildren.
No matter how difficult the situation is, with our assistance it can be resolved. Our approach is conciliatory yet firm - we believe an aggressive stance only serves to protract matters and increase costs. We will obtain the best possible settlement for clients with the minimum of fuss.
We regularly work with mortgage advisors, valuers and estate agents to enable matters to proceed. We also deal with wills, trusts and probate to ensure that our clients' property and possessions are dealt with as they wish.
Our Family and Divorce Law Solicitors are experts. We have senior lawyers available to help you. Our staff will not only support you throughout your case but they will also prepare your case thoroughly, they will be ready for any court hearings and they are excellent negotiators.
Jacqueline Emmerson and Rona Samuel are Collaborative Family Lawyers. They have undergone extensive training in Collaborative Law in order to help you settle your case at Round Table Meetings rather than at Contested Court Hearings.
Our Family and Divorce Lawyers can help you to deal with all areas of Family and Divorce Law from straightforward cases to Complex High Net Worth Financial Matters. Our aim is to help you avoid costly and stressful Contested Court Proceedings. However, should it be necessary to issue or respond to court proceedings you will find that our Laywers are tough negotiators. Their key to success is thorough investigation and preparation and having a clear understanding of the law.
