Trusted McKenzie Friend Samantha Alderman  
About Samantha:

To be involved in family law court proceedings is incredibly stressful, particularly in cases about disputes over children. I speak from a personal as well as a professional perspective

Many people on low to moderate incomes are simply unable to afford a high street lawyer, following the withdrawal of legal aid for most family cases in 2013.

I have 13 years experience in all aspects of family law from cohabitation to divorce and finances to child arrangements.

Domestic abuse is another of my areas of expertise: whether you need to protect yourself from violence, defend an application or determine who is to live in the family home, I can assist you every step of the way.

My approach is to help clients resolve their dispute in the most amicable, cost-effective manner, hopefully outside of the court system, whilst offering strategic advice, moral support and assistance with complex legal correspondence or court paperwork as necessary, at a fraction of a high street firm’s costs.

Where court proceedings are necessary, I “hold my client’s hand” and liaise with the other side, during this stressful process, working towards a positive outcome for the client wherever possible.

For my client’s extra peace of mind, I maintain professional indemnity insurance.
