If you are going through a divorce or relationship breakdown, you need the best family law advice available. We can help you decide what is right in respect of yourself, your children, and all assets to which you may be entitled.

This is a highly complex arena and one which requires not only the best lawyer's advice but also a dedicated company division and structure that specialises in helping you through what is often a highly traumatic time.

Our Family Law and Matrimonial Division is led by leading solicitor Sarah Burke, who sensitively works with you on a one-to-one basis with you and your family's best interests at heart.

It is a fact of life that relationships and indeed families are not without their problems or exempt from the eventual outcome of divorce. We are extremely empathetic and strive to find solutions on your behalf that will empower you, regardless of the situation, to move forwards positively in the future.

We are with you, our client, right from the start of the process, on your side and it is our supporting role, which continues throughout the entire process that separates us from our competitors. We appreciate and are acutely aware of the sensitivities involved and go the extra mile where appropriate to help and support you.

We have represented thousands of clients in this specific area and really no two situations are alike as each case is treated on its own individual merits, but can include:

  • Divorce court proceedings and all associated financial arrangements
  • Negotiations regarding assets, finances
  • Access to children
  • We have direct access to senior counsel and forensic accounts in this arena.
  • Relation breakdown in all its aspects.

"We offer a comprehensive and market leading approach to matrimonial and family law that is tailor-made to deliver the best solution for your individual circumstances," said McConnell Kelly Co-Founder and Director Patrick Kelly.
