Family Law Solicitors

Here at Neves, we know that family life isn’t always plain sailing. Sadly, not all relationships can be successful, and often the unique dynamic that brings people together can be the catalyst that pulls them apart. Due to the emotion involved, family disputes can often be the most complicated to resolve. Without structured legal support from an early stage, it’s easy for family issues to transform into bitterly fought court battles, costing your family in stress as well as time and money.

At Neves Solicitors, we believe it doesn’t have to be this way. Since opening our doors, our family law solicitors have provided the local community in Harpenden, Luton and Milton Keynes with the advice and support they needed to get their lives back on track.

When things take a turn for the worst, having someone to rely on can make all the difference. That’s why at Neves, we strive each day to protect the interests of our clients when they need us the most. From the moment you instruct one of our family law solicitors, we will provide you with a clear, jargon-free understanding of your unique legal position and an estimate of the time and costs involved. That way, you’re in a better place to decide what’s right for you.
