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.

We'll Call You Back

"I just wanted to formally thank you for putting my family back together! As you know, I used to attend Families Need Fathers meetings and it was there that someone recommended you personally. It was the best piece of advice I’ve ever had. From the outset, you demonstrated your commitment and dedication to my case and as we both know, it’s been a challenging journey!

I had many different solicitors prior to working with you and you are without a doubt the very best. Your insight and perception, ability to know when ‘less is more’ and absolute grip on all things relating to my case, have quite literally left me in awe of your capabilities as a solicitor – so much so that I then recommended you to my colleague, who is now working with your firm.

You always make yourself available outside of normal working hours, which is always appreciated and you’ve never charged any more than absolutely necessary. I’d also like to compliment your staff, they are a credit to you and always a pleasure to speak with on the phone.

I know I’ve been rather fraught at times but as you know, my case has been a nightmare in so many ways. You exercised great patience and for that I am grateful!

I’m sure our paths with cross again and there will be odds and ends relating to the divorce anyway. But please feel free to post my feedback wherever is appropriate. I only ask that you either make up a name or make it anonymous for obvious reasons! Thanks once again."
