How OLS solicitors try to avoid you having to go to court

By Mark Keenan on April 6, 2023

At OLS Solicitors, we know that family law solicitors are often unfairly portrayed in the media. We understand that some people believe that solicitors are only interested in making money and prolonging cases. However, this couldn’t be further from the truth. In reality, family law solicitors have a duty to try and settle cases wherever possible.

Our experienced solicitors are trained to find solutions that work for both parties, and we believe that negotiating a settlement outside of court is almost always the best option. Going to court can be a long and expensive process, and it can be unpredictable in terms of the outcome. That’s why we always encourage our clients to explore alternative dispute resolution (ADR) options, such as mediation or collaborative law.

We understand that divorce can be a difficult and emotional time, and we believe that it’s our duty to help our clients navigate the process as smoothly as possible. Our team of friendly and approachable solicitors will work closely with you to understand your unique situation and find the best solution for your needs.

At OLS Solicitors, we take a client-focused approach to family law. We believe that our clients should be at the center of every decision we make. We are committed to providing a high level of service that meets the unique needs of each of our clients.

In conclusion, family law solicitors are often portrayed unfairly in the media, but we are dedicated to helping our clients find a solution that works for them.

We have a duty to try and settle cases wherever possible, and we will work tirelessly to make sure our clients are satisfied with the outcome. If you’re going through a divorce and need help negotiating a financial settlement, don’t hesitate to contact us at OLS Solicitors. We’re here to help you through this challenging time and make sure you come out the other side with a fair and equitable settlement.
