Your Family Law Solicitors in Cardiff

First Line Family Law is a specialist firm of family law solicitors in Cardiff. We provide practical and tailored legal advice in the wide-ranging and fast-evolving area of Family Law. First Line Family Law Cardiff offers you an affordable, personal and tailored service that focuses on your needs and desired outcome. All advice and assistance is provided on an agreed fixed fee basis with no compromise on service or quality. First Line Family Law was founded by Richard Davies. I have worked in various areas of law before later specialising in Family Law for clients in and around Cardiff, I can also represent clients remotely all over the UK and provide telephone legal advice as the first line of representation. When working for larger brands I often found the main issue was variable legal costs. All too often clients would have a split worry, the case at hand and the burden of meeting the cost of legal representation. I have found that by offering fixed fee representation you know exactly what it will cost upfront with no hidden fees. This allows you to focus on your case, rather than potential escalating solicitor fees. More importantly, you will have peace of mind that you will be represented properly in a court of law with a lawyer that has vast experience in the sector. Throughout the years I have built a solid reputation in the family law sector, having personally conducted trials and interim hearings in various cases encompassing all areas of Family Law.

Your family is important to you and our aim is to take the stress out of the situation to allow you to focus on your family’s future.

It is important to remember that Divorce or separation does not necessarily end the financial ties between you and your partner.

When children are involved an already difficult situation can get even more complicated and emotional.

Need to know more?

Appearing in court or seeking legal representation can be daunting and a little scary at first, this is why from the outset I put my clients at ease and use my vast experience in the legal sector to build a strong case for every client. I have worked on most family law cases including more complex financial matters, foreign assets and applications by third parties, so you have the best family law solicitor for your case.

Please call or email to discuss your concerns. Whether it involves Children Law, Divorce Law, Matrimonial Finances, Cohabitation issues or any other issue arising from your family circumstances, we’re here to help you.

Richard assisted me in Court and quickly grasped the myriad of complexities of my case and was able to offer me sound professional advice that put me at ease. I felt completely confident in his abilities. His assistance led to my case being settled without any further disputes or a need to go to trial. I would have no hesitation in recommending Richard’s services as an experienced legal professional. I wish him well and every success.
