The all-female team includes solicitors who are accredited members of the Law Society’s Family Law Advanced Panel and the Law Society’s Children Panel.

“When a relationship breaks down it can be distressing and traumatic,” said Jodi Winter, head of the new Family and Matrimonial Department, and a partner in the firm. “People often feel vulnerable, confused and unsure about what to do next. We can offer expert advice to help and support people through this difficult time and ensure that they are treated fairly and receive everything they deserve.”

The new team brings together experts from the firm’s Barry and Cardiff offices, and is based at the CJCH offices in Canton, Cardiff.

The development is a result of rapid growth in the firm, which – as Clarke & Hartland – had 24 employees just over two years ago, and now has more than 90.

“We recognise the sensitivity of dealing with family matters,” said Ms Winter. “Whether it is a matrimonial issue, prenuptial or cohabitee dispute, a divorce or childcare matter, the personal touch is what is required. We have offices at Cardiff city centre, Canton, Barry and Bridgend and are able to meet clients at their preferred location.

“Between us, we have the expertise, experience, skillset and proactive thinking to provide the best possible advice. We are also able to offer a free initial consultation on all family and matrimonial matters, and advice in many languages.”
