In the year that American actress Elizabeth Taylor finalized her 7th divorce (1982), we opened our first office in a converted cobbler’s shop in Leeds. Since then, we’ve evolved, changed, and grown. Today, we are the only national law firm completely dedicated to family matters. From our unique position, we help families when they break down with care, empathy, and respect.Our people
Our people are the backbone of what we do. We attract the best family lawyers and support teams who excel in something they are passionate about.

As specialist family law solicitors and mediators, we understand that every client and their family are unique. We also know that divorce and separation can influence every aspect of life.
That’s why it takes a personalized approach to make sure vital family relationships are preserved.
Sharp Family Law is a niche firm of family solicitors in Bath and Bristol. Since 2008, we’ve represented many clients seeking to minimize the financial and emotional cost of divorce and separation – supporting them to secure the best outcome for themselves and their families.
Empowering people to move on with life
From non-adversarial methods – such as collaborative law and mediation – to court litigation, there are many means to achieve a divorce or separation. We help our clients find the best one for their circumstances, providing them with all the support they need to make informed decisions about what’s right for them.
At Sharp Family Law, we understand that divorce and separation are not simply legal or financial processes. We know they affect all aspects of a couple’s life, in unique ways.

One that encompasses everything from children and finances to emotional well-being, and empowers clients to plan their future with confidence.CONTACT – SHARP FAMILY LAW
Crisp & Co was established in 1996 by Henry & Michele Crisp to provide specialist legal advice in matrimonial and family law to our clients.
Since then, our firm has expanded to locations across London, Bath, Bristol and Manchester.
Our expert solicitors are able to advise in all aspects of family law including divorce and dissolution of civil partnerships, and their allied financial issues, separation of couples who have been living together, pre and post-nuptial agreements, and all aspects of the breakdown of relationships involving children.
It is the aim of our firm to provide our clients with a first-class and bespoke service guiding them through the emotional and legal complexities of separation and other related issues. We strive to provide our clients with a secure outcome that is right for them and their families.
As well as the traditional legal advice and representation in Court, we have solicitors who have training in collaborative law and mediation. These are alternative methods of dealing with the breakdown of family relationships based on a less confrontational approach with the objective of achieving a harmonious outcome. For more information on these alternatives see our collaborative and mediation pages.
We will also soon be able to help with a no-fault divorce. A new law is being introduced in April 2022 which will allow couples to get a divorce, civil partnership dissolution, or legal separation without having to blame each other and rely on one of the ‘five facts’ to prove the irretrievable breakdown of the relationship. More information on this can be found on our no-fault divorce page.
We are aware that legal fees are an unwelcome but inevitable consequence of family breakdown, and pride ourselves on offering the best expertise at the most competitive and reasonable price. Furthermore, we endeavour to provide our clients with accurate cost estimates and time frames from the outset and throughout our involvement in their matters. For those clients who have a need to limit costs to a certain sum, we also offer a ‘pay as you go’ service, whereby work is limited to a certain cost limit.CONTACT – CRISP & CO SOLICITORS

All of our lawyers are experts in their specialization. We do not dabble. You will also quickly find that our lawyers are both committed and supportive. We really do care.

Legal aid has now largely disappeared but we remain one of the few firms in the Bristol area able to offer public funding from the Legal Aid Authority. Legal aid may now mainly be restricted to cases involving either childcare cases or domestic violence but during our initial meeting with you, we will be able to tell you whether you will be eligible for legal aid. We are proud to have won the Bristol Law Society Legal Aid Firm of the Year for 2013/2014.CONTACT – WATKINS SOLICITORS

HOW WE CAN HELP
“Family Law” is a term that ultimately covers a myriad of issues, each with its own levels of complexity depending on your personal situation. The three major categories of family law cases are Divorce, Parental Rights and Responsibilities, and Post-Judgment Motions. Complaints for Protection from Abuse (domestic violence) is somewhat of a hybrid category and can be considered a type of family matter as well, but they do not necessarily overlap.CONTACT – CONLEY & WIRICK, P.A
