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.

"The team at Holmes Family Law are amazing, they go above and beyond what is expected from a legal team. They offer not just legal advice but a great deal of emotional support. They have given me my life back, some self-respect and the chance for my family and I to have a happy future.

It was the best decision I ever made picking up the phone a year ago and feel very lucky that Helen was on the other end. Helen is very assertive in court and makes sure your voice is heard. I think she would make a fantastic barrister.

Cara Smith's statement writing is fantastic she has such an ability to put your life on a piece of paper still capturing the emotion but in a concise way. Her determination to get all the disclosure from Northumbria Police was amazing. There was no stopping Cara she just kept going back and back to them, even right up until a few days before the court case. They eventually found one of the incidents we had been asking them to search for. This obviously was essential to prove my case. Again, her emotional support and referral to women’s aid has made a huge difference to me.

Laura was a great support at court and the choice of barrister was perfect.

I got what I wanted at court and it’s all thanks to Helen and her team. I would highly recommend Holmes Family Law to anyone going through family matters."
