The services available at our Sheffield office include:
Family law and divorce
For expert family law advice, you can rely on Slater and Gordon. Our Sheffield family law solicitors have extensive experience in all areas of personal and family law, including marriage and civil partnership, divorce and separation and children’s issues including adoption, custody, child maintenance and many more.
If you’re facing a complex situation, you need a Slater and Gordon solicitor on your side to offer honest, helpful advice and to guide you through any legal process you may face. Our Sheffield specialists are known for their sympathetic, friendly approach as well as their dedication and resourcefulness, all with the aim of resolving your case to the benefit of your family.
As many of our solicitors are members of Resolution, the family law organisation with a focus on a non-confrontational legal approach, and are trained in collaborative law, they can help you to avoid costly court proceedings and reach a positive solution or settlement through mediation and constructive negotiation. This can speed up the process of reaching a resolution, as well as reducing the stress involved in many family law cases when a case has to go to court and takes months or even years to resolve.
Contact our family and divorce solicitors in Sheffield for a consultation to discuss your case. Simply contact us with the details of your situation and we’ll connect you with a specialist family lawyer who can offer you initial legal advice by telephone. Call our team on 0114 276 6868 to discuss your case, or contact us online and we’ll contact you when it’s convenient. We provide both flexible pricing and fixed fees for all family legal services including wills and probate, children law, separation agreements, divorce and mediation services. Our pricing is designed to be as clear as possible, so you should never face unexpected costs part-way through your case.
Wills, probate and estate administration
In addition to other areas of family law, our solicitors in Sheffield have a vast amount of experience dealing with all issues relating to wills, probate and estate administration matters. Writing a will is one of the most important things you can do, no matter what your age or circumstances. It ensures that your wishes are respected and your estate properly managed after you’re gone, but it’s surprising just how many people do not currently have a will in place.
Slater and Gordon aim to make arranging this essential piece of legal documentation as easy and affordable as possible, which is why we offer both flexible pricing and fixed fees for writing a will and for most of our family law services. Being such an important document, it’s essential to have a legal expert to guide you through the process. If you have a question about wills, probate or estate management, or you wish to take advantage of our expertise, seek advice from our experienced Sheffield solicitors or use our will writing service. You can call 0114 276 6868 or contact us online and we’ll get in touch.
Our personal injury solicitors and medical negligence lawyers in Sheffield are known for their skills, expertise and client-focused approach. To assist our clients in Sheffield, we established a specialist team of clinical negligence experts within our Balm Green office in the city centre. Our solicitors specialise in cases involving birth injuries, orthopaedic injuries, CJD cases, inquests and neurological issues, many of which can have a devastating effect on victims. Our team in Sheffield is dedicated to helping clients who have experienced clinical or medical negligence through these incredibly difficult times and to seek justice on their behalf.
The Slater and Gordon Sheffield office also regularly deals with personal injury cases including slips, trips and falls, road traffic accidents and accidents at work. If you’ve been hurt and you believe that someone else’s negligence or carelessness was to blame for what happened, we can help you to seek the compensation you deserve. Many of the cases we deal with involve the neglect of responsibility for health and safety by employers, leading to avoidable injuries from workplace accidents that leave victims unable to work, out of pocket and in a great deal of pain. Slater and Gordon’s lawyers in Sheffield and throughout the UK are dedicated to fighting for clients who have experienced such distressing and sometimes life-changing situations, and are proud to have an exceptional track record when it comes to successful outcomes and compensation won.
To ensure that you can pursue your case without any unnecessary expense, we offer a completely free consultation and over 97% of the claims we deal with are funded by a No Win No Fee agreement. Seeking justice shouldn’t leave you out of pocket, so we aim to provide affordable and exceptional value services to every client who relies on us for help. Our team includes many specialist personal injury and clinical negligence lawyers who have built up a strong reputation of fighting hard for our clients, so you can be confident that you have the very best legal professionals working for you. Call us on 0114 276 6868 or on 0114 276 6868 out of hours 24/7 for a free consultation and we’ll be happy to help.

Our Sheffield location
The Slater and Gordon Sheffield offices are located right next to the Grade II listed Sheffield City Hall in the heart of the city. Designed in 1920 and opened in 1932, the City Hall is a highly impressive building dominating the central square of Barker’s Pool. Our Balm Green offices are close by in the spacious, contemporary Fountain Precinct, an eight-storey building where you’ll find our team of specialist solicitors.
If you’d like to pay us a visit, our Balm Green office is easy to reach as it is just a short taxi ride from Sheffield Rail Station. If travelling by car, our Sheffield branch is accessible via the M1.
Just 10 minutes’ walk from the Slater and Gordon office is one of the most important and well-used legal buildings in the city, the Sheffield Combined Court Centre. The Law Courts, a complex of legal buildings, are in a central location on West Bar and house the County and Crown courts for the city. Within these walls, cases relating to adoption, divorce, children, family law, bankruptcy, crime, employment, social security, housing possession and money claims are heard and resolved.
Before moving to this more modern building, Sheffield Crown Court was housed in the Old Town Hall, a Grade I listed building on Waingate designed by Charles Watson and built in 1808. The building is known for its striking clock tower. At the time when the city’s Crown Court and High Court were operated from the Old Town Hall, the building's courtrooms were linked to the nearby Sheffield Police Offices via underground tunnels.
In the same part of the city is Sheffield Magistrates Court, a legal building on Castle Street that primarily deals with crime and social security cases.
In addition to its important court buildings, the city of Sheffield is known for its excellence in the field of legal research and education. The School of Law at The University of Sheffield, a prestigious Russell Group institution, is ranked in the top 10 in the UK for research excellence, competing with the likes of the University of Oxford’s respected legal department. An impressive 90% of the research output of the department is ranked either internationally excellent or world-leading, with examples of the School’s research excellence including work such as ‘Transforming the role of ombudsmen in the UK’ and ‘Transforming re-offender rehabilitation with research’.
Students at The School of Law are taught by international experts, and 80% of graduates receive either a 1st or a 2:1 degree at the end of their study. The university is also famous for its Centre for Criminological Research and Centre for Professional Legal Education.
Slater and Gordon Sheffield – proud members of the Sheffield & District Law Society
The Sheffield & District Law Society is one of the oldest regional law societies in the UK. It was founded in 1875 under a slightly different name, the Sheffield District Incorporated Law Society, by a solicitor named Nathaniel Creswick – who is also famous for founding Sheffield F.C., the first associated football club in the world.
The Law Society is now based at Law Society Hall, a building that came into existence thanks to the generosity of local solicitor Edward Bramley, who donated his own funds to the project in 1929. Law Society Hall stands on Campo Lane, mere minutes on foot from our own Sheffield offices on Balm Green. The Hall and the society’s administrative office and respected Law Library can be found in the centre of what is known as Sheffield’s legal quarter, near to the cathedral.
Slater and Gordon Lawyers is proud to be a member of such an internationally respected professional society.
The Sheffield & District Law Society is not only one of the oldest examples of a legal institution in the UK. It is also one of the largest, with a rapidly growing membership of professionals spanning Sheffield and other parts of South Yorkshire, including Barnsley and Rotherham. The society aims to support the legal profession and its members through social events, networking and training, and it provides a library and information service. Members of the public can also use the society to find a lawyer for legal advice or representation.
