Louise Halford and Robin Charrot set up Evolve Family Law in 2015. They both have many years of city centre family legal experience in large commercial firms and wanted to offer an alternative: solicitors who listen and guide, who are not hide bound by big firm procedures, who are approachable and accessible and who are specialist enough to know the law and their stuff but aren’t divorce divas.

Evolve is small enough to care and keep it personal, with clients and their families as the focus of all that they do. Louise, Robin and their team help clients make informed choices so that they can successfully move forward with their lives after a separation, divorce or after resolving parenting arrangements and financial settlements. Evolve breaks down the complex and confusing minefield of family law to the bits clients need to know to navigate the best possible outcome in their family circumstances.

Clients come from a wide range of backgrounds and countries and include clients thinking about prenup or cohabitation agreements, and unmarried and same-sex couples. We are trusted advisors and not just matrimonial or divorce lawyers.

Many of our client’s family concerns have international aspects. We have specialist knowledge of cases involving Child Abduction and the removal of children from the jurisdiction as well as financial settlements involving complex multi-jurisdictional assets.

We are passionate about what we do and how we do it. Talk to us by calling 01477 464020 or send us a confidential e-mail.
