Laura is a member of Resolution which is a professional body of specialist family lawyers dedicated to resolving family disputes in a non-confrontational way.
Laura is quickly able to put clients at ease with her considered and practical approach to their legal situation. Laura says –
"I enjoy being able to act on the instructions of a client to achieve the best possible outcome for them, in the most cost effective manner as quickly as possible."

On the current hot subject of Family law not needing lawyers Laura says:-

Laura is keen to emphasise benefits of using a solicitor rather than representing yourself in divorce proceedings: “People often think that by representing yourself in divorce proceedings it will save you money. This can however, be a false economy A good solicitor will have the requisite legal knowledge to help to settle the case at an early stage, where possible, so avoiding the cost, delay and upset of going to Court.”

Laura comes highly recommended her clients say -
Thank you very much for your service. Laura was very thorough and supportive.

Thank you so much for seeing me….and giving me your qualified and professional advice. I seemed to have thrown so much at you in such a short time, but you really did for the first time enlighten me as to where I stand in this situation - SS

I am so pleased with Laura Colley's work. I cannot thank her enough. She exceeded all expectations & she was a pleasure to work with.- TK
