When families break down, we take the strain.

We’re the largest specialist team of family lawyers in the UK. And every one of us wants the same thing: to help more clients get what they need today so that they can move on tomorrow.

Our story

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.

Within our 80-plus strong team of leading UK divorce lawyers, we have forensic accountants, a dedicated children’s department, an adoption team, surrogacy law specialists, and an international family law department and we also have trained mediators.



We’re legal and financial advisors with a difference, based in offices across the UK and with an international presence as members of First Law International.

Giving the best possible advice is about more than knowledge and expertise. It means understanding the people and businesses you work with as deeply as possible. It means taking the time to listen to what matters most to them. It’s what we call ‘the expert hand with human touch’. We couldn’t do for our clients what we do without our colleagues or our communities either – read more about Irwin Mitchell’s clients, colleagues, and communities.


We all need legal or financial advice at some point in our personal lives. It can help us through some of our key milestones – buying a house, getting married, planning retirement, providing for your kids’ future, or moving to a new country. But it’s also vital when things don’t go according to plan – if you’re hurt in an accident, a medical procedure goes wrong, a loved one loses mental capacity, or you’re treated unfairly by work or the government. It could also be a difficult family matter such as a separation or a dispute over a will. And it can also give us peace of mind for the future, whether that’s with a new Will, a power of attorney, or a solid financial plan. Whatever your situation, we have specialists ready to help. We’ll listen to you and strive for the best possible outcome. See a full list of our personal legal services and wealth management services



We are the leading Midlands firm for childcare and family law, advising clients on private childcare arrangements and negotiations during court proceedings, representing and advising parents through the child-protection process, and childcare, and advising prospective parents on adoption and surrogacy processes throughout Birmingham and beyond.

When parents separate, children, especially those old enough to express their views can often feel trapped, caught in the middle of their parent’s dispute, and desperate to try to please both parents. Moreover, it is a sad reality that children can often feel their own views are lost in their Mum and Dad’s disputes, and often, what is eventually agreed upon or ordered is not what the child themselves might want or what might be best for them.

There are no winners in court battles regarding children. As family solicitors, we see many cases that boil over into legal disputes and court proceedings. Although in court proceedings a court-appointed professional called a CAFCASS officer can be directed to prepare a report within which to identify a child’s wishes and feelings, often by this point a great deal of damage has been done and significant costs incurred.

At Anthony Collins Solicitors we have two family solicitors; Chris Lloyd-Smith and Maria Ramon, who are also Accredited Family Mediators, who work with parents to try and agree on private childcare arrangements without the necessity of going to court.

Brendan Fleming has worked his entire legal career for low rates of pay and representing the poor. He has always considered it to be outrageous and unaffordable to charge skyrocket rates if you are an ordinary family facing divorce and the division of one asset, namely your family home.

We work on fees tailored to your specific needs, agreeing on a fee structure with you directly with no hidden charges as your case proceeds. Our fixed fee divorce rate may be higher than online divorces, however, we promise you will have a dedicated, specialist member of the team dealing with your case who can offer specific, tailored advice to your individual circumstances in a friendly and approachable way.
