What can you do for me?

Separating from your partner can be a very difficult and stressful time. Taking legal advice might seem like a scary step but it should not be. From the start I will provide you with straightforward and practical advice about your rights and options so you can make informed decisions about your future. I will ensure that matters progress at a pace which suits you.

As well as being experienced in advising on matters arising on divorce and separation, including the impact it will have on your finances, I also advise on wealth protection issues, cohabitation disputes, financial provision for children and issues relating to legal parentage (including surrogacy, donor sperm and co-parenting arrangements) and the arrangements for your children such as where they should live and how much time they should spend with each parent. I often advise on complex cases with an international element including relocating with children abroad and international surrogacy. 

What makes you different from other divorce lawyers?

I take a sensitive approach to the issues that matter most to you. As a team in Manchester we offer a range of different services from traditional legal advice, to collaborative law, mediation and arbitration. I trained as a collaborative lawyer in 2016. I will explore with you what approach suits you and your family best and make sure that the service you receive is tailored to you.

I understand you will be concerned about costs. I will always keep you informed and will look at whether a fixed fee service is suitable for you. 

What do your clients say about you?

The best feedback is sometimes the simplest – “thank you”. The rewarding part of my job to knowing that I have helped someone and made a difference to their life. Previous clients have commented on my straightforward and clear approach and the support I have provided to enable them to deal with complex legal issues.

The family team in Manchester is ranked in the top tier in both the leading legal directories – something we are very proud about.

What involvement do you have in the Manchester community?

I am an active member of Resolution (a group of family lawyers committed to resolving matters as amicably as possible) and I am Treasurer of Young Resolution Manchester. I strongly believe a good working relationship with other family lawyers helps reduce unnecessary conflict and ensure that the best interest of a family are maintained in resolving any dispute.

What else should I know about you?

Having grown up in South Yorkshire I moved across the Pennines to train as a solicitor in the biggest legal centre in the North West. I believe the legal community in Manchester provides top quality legal advice and is proof Manchester really is the capital of the North.

I regularly contribute to our blogs and national family law publications and have ventured into the world of twitter – you can follow me at www.twitter.com/rmedrury.
