Family law and children

Our family solicitors in Cambridge can help with all areas of family law, children law, divorce and family mediation services.

The team in Cambridge includes the leading family law solicitors Marc Etherington and Grace Brass. Marc’s expertise includes all areas of family law, but he has built up a reputation for handling complex cases involving children and child welfare. Marc’s approach aims to avoid unnecessary litigation and settle disputes outside of the courtroom, to the benefit of all involved.

Grace Brass is not only a senior associate and family law expert at Slater and Gordon, but she is also the president of the Cambridgeshire and District Law Society. Grace has a great deal of experience with cohabitation legal matters, complex financial situations, pre and post nuptial agreements and property ownership disputes.

Grace, Mark and many of our other specialist family law solicitors are members of Resolution, an organisation committed to a non-confrontational approach to settling legal disputes. Our Cambridge solicitors aim to keep cases out of court where possible, to avoid the expense, stress and hassle of litigation.

Employment

Our employment solicitors represent employees from across all industries. Our clients range from part time workers to senior executives, company partners and public sector officials and businesses. Slater and Gordon’s employment solicitors have been shortlisted by The Lawyer magazine individually and as a team 10 times since 2000, winning “Employment Team of the Year” on three occasions.

Our solicitors can offer advice and support on all aspects of employment law, from unfair dismissal to harassment and discrimination cases. We have worked on many high-profile, precedent-setting court cases, but our greatest selling point for many clients is the success rate we have at preventing employment tribunals by negotiating confidential settlements outside of court.

Wills, Tax, Trust and Probate

Making a will doesn’t have to be difficult, but it is important to get it right. Use our will writing service here at Slater and Gordon Cambridge to quickly and effectively create a legally binding document that outlines your wishes clearly, with an expert wills solicitor on hand to offer you advice you can trust. No matter how simple or complex your financial and property affairs are, we can help. We can talk you through your options if you have a complicated estate or situation to manage, providing expert recommendations to help you make the right choices.

Our other services can help with wealth protection, support for vulnerable individuals and their families and the establishment of trusts to provide for future generations of your family. Our solicitors are experts at what they do and they pride themselves on their sensitive client care and honest, straightforward communication, as well as their in-depth knowledge of this area of the law.

 Our location in Cambridge

You’ll find the Slater and Gordon Cambridge offices on Station Road, a part of the city with convenient access to Cambridge railway station. If you plan to visit us, services running through this Grade II listed station go between Cambridge and London, Norwich, Ipswich, Ely, King’s Lynn and elsewhere.

We moved into our Station Road premises back in 2015 from a base outside of the city centre. The change in location saw us join other major market-leading organisations in forming a vibrant and innovative new business district centred around Station Road, with new developments springing up all the time in this new city quarter.

Our Cambridge solicitors are also based less than a mile away from one of the most important legal buildings in the city, Cambridge Crown Court. Formerly housed in the listed building and now popular entertainment venue Cambridge Guildhall, the court moved to new premises on East Road back in 2004. The court has three courtrooms and houses the police, Probation Service and Crown Prosecution Service. It is also known for its modern facilities and use of state of the art technology, through which it has significantly improved access to legal services for the people of Cambridge.

The building is within close proximity to the Cambridge County Court and Family Court, also on East Road. This court mainly hears cases relating to family law issues such as divorce, children, adoption, housing, social security, money claims and bankruptcy. It is also home to the High Court District Registry.

Another iconic Cambridge legal institution is the city’s Magistrates Court, located at the other end of Regent Street from our offices and next to the old main Post Office building. The court, which opened in 2008, is fronted by an old façade from a famous Cambridge department store, Robert Sayle. This impressive frontage also makes the court a popular attraction for tourists. The Cambridge Magistrates Court hears mainly crime and employment cases but is also home to family proceedings courts, the Crown Prosecution Service, the Witness Service and many court offices.

Cambridge is, of course, also world famous for its universities. The law schools at both the University of Cambridge and Anglia Ruskin University are internationally respected. At Anglia Ruskin University, the law school’s LLB (Hons) Law course was placed by the Guardian League Tables 2013 in the top third of all undergraduate law courses in the UK.

The University of Cambridge’s Faculty of Law is one of the world’s oldest law schools and is also believed to be one of the finest due to the quality of its teaching. The faculty is also known for its excellence in ground-breaking legal research, with a particular speciality in international law.

Legal education in Cambridge is thought to have begun in the 13th century, while the Regius Professorship of Civil Law – the oldest of its kind in the English-speaking world – was founded in 1540. The modern-day department teaches around 700 undergraduates and 225 graduate students. The University of Cambridge is consistently ranked as the best establishment in which to study law in the UK, while QS World University Rankings put Cambridge in second place in the world. Other accolades and top spot rankings come from the Guardian, The Complete University Guide and The Times Good University Guide.

The University of Cambridge is also home to one of the oldest and largest student societies in the UK, and possibly even the world. The Cambridge University Law Society was founded in 1901 and now has a membership of over 1,000 students and growing. The society is known for publishing a respected magazine each term, Per Incuriam, and it regularly hosts forums and talks with respected speakers from the legal profession.

We’re proud to be members of the Cambridgeshire & District Law Society

Our Cambridge solicitors are honoured to be among the prestigious membership of one of the oldest local law societies in the Eastern region. The Cambridgeshire & District Law Society was founded in 1871 and is a self-governing association that has always been run by a committee, with a President and Vice President elected each year.

This nationally respected society represents most of the lawyers working in and around the city of Cambridge and regularly holds events such as the Excellence Awards, which recognises exceptional talent and success in the local legal industry. At the 2017 Excellence Awards, Slater and Gordon was one of just two local law firms nominated for ‘Firm of the Year’.
