A Message from Helen Holmes - Principal

"Our lawyers are professional and friendly and they understand the kinds of issues that people may be facing when there is a family breakdown. I understand that people have busy lives and to take time off work to consult with a Solicitor can be an added pressure. I have installed an ethos that Holmes Family Law will offer much-needed support through what can be an emotional time. Our lawyers will help you get the right advice from the outset of your case so that you make informed and constructive decisions for you and your family."

Helen is a well-regarded, leading Family Law Solicitor whose knowledge of the industry coupled with her passion for service are second to none. With 20 years’ experience under her belt she is one of the most sought after and prominent Family Lawyers in the region. Helen previously ran a successful Family Law department for a large Law firm before setting up her own practice in Whickham and since expanding into Cramlington.

"From the very first call to Lily on reception, it became extremely clear to me that this is a highly authentic family focussed and genuinely caring company of experienced family law solicitors and staff.

Lily and her colleagues on reception are the cornerstone of this company making you feel very much at ease immediately upon arrival. Lily was keen to share with me briefly her own personal experiences of family and divorce law matters also, which made me feel a lot better about finding myself in my current unfortunate position.

I was then introduced to Rebecca Savage, who was immediately welcoming and understanding of my particular situation and soon routed out the 3 main areas of focus required. As a police officer, I was extremely impressed with the level of genuine fairness and integrity shown not just to myself personally but also amicably towards my wife who is, unfortunately, divorcing me.

This paid dividends as I soon returned for more legal and matrimonial advice such was my confidence in Rebecca. In my profession, I deal with a lot of solicitors and law firms but never have I ever come across people so genuine and caring as Rebecca, Lily and this company.

I would not hesitate to highly recommend this company to friends, relatives and colleagues who I am aware several have used. As police officers, we are highly critical of the law industry but I have to say I find this company and the people at the heart of it absolutely priceless. They are nothing other than a delight to deal with."
