Future focused Family Law

First Line Family Law was founded by Richard Davies, solicitor and Family Law Specialist.

After practising Law in his former departments and firms he realised that many clients were unable to access legal advice and services due to the excessive burden of unknown and variable solicitor’s costs.

During his career Richard has worked in legal sectors that accepted and routinely offered fixed fees. He realised that clients were far more able to focus on the real and immediate issues at hand when their attention was not split between their personal circumstances and the cost of obtaining and retaining legal representation. In each case, when this burden was removed the clients were able to reach solutions that met their goals far more quickly.

Tailored Services

When developing the concept and the processes that underpin First Line Family Law the overarching aim was to find, offer and provide a personal and tailored plan and service that sits hand in hand with an affordable cost that makes no compromise on quality of service. As such First Line Family Law offers extremely competitive hourly rates in conjunction with Fixed Fees.
