At FDC Law, solicitors and advisors in the Family department are also proud members of Resolution, a community of family justice professionals who work with families and individuals to resolve issues in a constructive way.
Resolution membership is about the approach we take to our work. This means that as a Resolution member, we always seek to reduce or manage any conflict and confrontation, support and encourage families to put the best interests of any children first and act with honesty, integrity and objectivity.
Marjorie Taylor, head of the Family department, explains: “I know from my 18 years working as a family law solicitor, that clients have the best outcomes when they are helped to understand and manage the potential long-term financial and emotional consequences of decisions. This is why I use my experience and knowledge to guide my clients through the options available to them.”
As Resolution members, we have signed up to a Code of Practice that will demonstrate to clients the approach we will always take. The Code promotes a constructive approach to family issues and considers the needs of the whole family, in particular the best interests of children.
If you decide to work with us, in relation to your family case, this means:
Because we are signed up to the Resolution Code, we work with a network of other like-minded professionals, including mediators, financial planners and family consultants, to make sure we are helping our clients find the right approach for them.
Marjorie Taylor is also a Resolution trained Collaborative Family Lawyer, which means she is able to offer a further option for working with your former spouse or partner, allowing the two of you greater control over how the issues arising from your separation are resolved.
