Nicky Matheson-Durrant – Family Law Clinic

I’m the Director of the Family Law Clinic Ltd, the low cost alternative to divorce Solicitors.

Having identified the need for an alternative to expensive Solicitors and Barristers, I founded the first lay, fee-charging, divorce and court support service, coining the phrase ‘Professional McKenzie Friend’.

This term has become widely adopted throughout the UK. I also created the first training course for Professional McKenzie Friends, hosting 5-day courses, and have trained over 50 Solicitors, Barristers, Legal Executives and para-legals.

My clients come from all over the UK, and all over the world.  Apart from my fees, my clients are attracted to use my business because of my knowledge, experience, transparency, frankness, and my absolute loyalty and dedication to them.

Family law Solicitors are no longer a necessity, given the affordability and competence of Litigant In Person Assistants (aka Para Legals, McKenzie Friends, Legal Executives) and the flexibility of Public Access Barristers.”

You certainly do not ‘need’ a Solicitor at all, to start things off or to move matters forward. If, after meeting you, we considered, for example, that a letter to the other spouse was necessary, we could advise you how to word and structure a letter that you could write yourself. A letter from you, worded correctly, has as much procedural significance as a Solicitors letter, should you then decide to apply to the court for help if she/he was uncooperative.

We can help you in a family law matter if you do not qualify for public funding and prefer not to use a high street Solicitor. We are not Solicitors, but with access to over 100 legal consultants (aka McKenzie Friends and Legal Executives) available across England & Wales, we are ready to work hard for your success in and out of Court.

Divorce, Children Act solutions and financial settlements are not an exact science, as every case is different. However, you can rely on us for a high standard of service, transparency and no hidden costs, so, if you email us your enquiry now, we will do our very best to help.
