I am an Associate Solicitor in the Family Department here at Redkite.
I am based primarily at the Stroud office but do retain close links and work in conjunction with all of the Redkite offices in the Gloucestershire area.
I qualified as a solicitor in 2004 and have since that time worked to expand and develop my expertise in all aspects of Family Law.
I am a member of Resolution who are a recognised organisation for family law professionals known for their focus on resolving family disputes in the least confrontational, constructive way. I am recognised for my specialism in family law matters by Resolution and am a Resolution Accredited Specialist.
I have experience in advising, supporting and assisting clients who are working through a marriage or relationship breakdown. In that instance I can provide specialist legal advice on divorce, financial matters arising from a relationship breakdown and child arrangements.
My approach takes account of the likely costs of taking certain steps, versus the likely benefit to be achieved. In my view this is a vital part of my job.
I regularly act for parents who are under threat of removal of their children, or having had their children removed, by the Local Authority.
I also offer advice to people who are not married but who are living together, who may be in dispute about their children or financial matters.
I love the immensely varied nature of my job. I thrive on helping people resolve their problems, which means that I get an enormous sense of satisfaction from my job.
What our clients say
I was very pleased with the courtesy of the ladies who attended to my requests and particularly so at the time when I had my accident – they were extremely helpful.
Paul James' support has been invaluable in effectively progressing key contractual requirements. His knowledge and expertise in contract and procurement matters is exceptional. Would not hesitate to engage Paul's services again in future should the requirement and opportunity arise.” (dated March 2017).
The reason I used Redkite is that most solicitors don’t have the area of expertise that I required.
Redkite have provided assistance through several particularly difficult issues. Their advice has been professional, thorough and specifically tailoured to the needs of our business. The staff are approachable, knowledgeable and realistic in the advice they provide.
Redkite were recommended to me and I would do the same, fantastic service.
I have to say that everyone I have come into contact with from the receptionists to the solicitors have always been excellent. The advice I have been given formally and informally has always been clear and concise which is always a weight off your mind when you are dealing with the affairs of your loved ones.
