The stress and anxiety of a relationship breakdown are difficult for you and your family to cope with. It is essential that you get specialist family law advice from a specialist team. But you need a solicitor who does not just know the law – getting a lawyer you trust and feel comfortable working with makes all the difference.
Attwaters Jameson Hill is a dedicated family law team in Hertford with offices throughout Herts and Essex. We have built a reputation for a calm, sympathetic approach that inspires confidence in our clients and gets impressive results.
Our skills and experience enable us to deliver advice on the key issues you face – promptly and with confidence. But we are always aware that with each case we are dealing with individual stories, new issues and fresh challenges. This is what drives us.
Your Questions Answered
We know you will have questions; about costs, about whether to change the locks in your family home or major worries about your financial security if your spouse declares himself or herself bankrupt. There are no stupid questions in our book. When it comes to divorce, separation or the care of your children, no issue is too trivial. Get in touch. We offer a fixed-fee consultation to provide essential outline advice. Following this, if you need one, we will arrange a more detailed meeting to develop a strategic plan of action.
What We Do
Among the team we have members of Resolution, the Law Society’s Family Law Accreditation Scheme and the Children Accreditation Scheme. We also have a trained collaborative lawyer.
When clients come to see us, they are often very confused, scared, angry or upset. We take pride in the fact that we are able to gain their trust and work with them to find a solution and end result, in a proactive and economical way. Our true enjoyment of the job comes from seeing a stronger and happier client at the end of the process, and knowing that we helped them get there.

- Divorce and separation
- Financial settlements
- Collaborative law and mediation
- Disputes involving children
- Child protection and adoption
- Domestic abuse
