Providing expert advice on divorce, separation and matrimonial issues.

…with you every step of the way!

Eaton Smith LLP is one of the area's leading family law firms providing a full range of expert family law services to families and individuals including matrimonial issues such as divorce and separation. Our team of family law solicitors and support staff are proud that much of their work comes from recommendations from satisfied, existing and past clients.

The firm specialises in all types of family law issues including divorce, high-value financial settlements and separations involving co-habiting and same-sex couples.

We know that a considered and conciliatory approach to family disputes can produce a better, long-term answer to problems but equally, when circumstances demand, we can and do react quickly and uncompromisingly, especially in extreme situations involving aggressive behaviour or the safety of children.

At a time when the emotional stress can be unbearable, you can rely on sympathetic, understanding, experienced and practical help from our trained experts who appreciate that going to court does not always represent the most appropriate way of dealing with disputes and who will always consider alternatives to litigation.

"I contacted Eaton Smith to help with my divorce as I had previously used their conveyancing services. I was put in touch with Richard Buckley who I warmed to straight away due to his calm, kind nature. Although my divorce wasn't as straight forward as I had hoped it would be, Richard was very helpful and always willing to make changes where necessary. The whole process was a very stressful time for me in my life but it was definitely made easier knowing that Richard was taking care of everything and he was able to settle my mind when I raised concerns with him. Things didn't go as planned but they were handled well and I would recommend Richard Buckley and Eaton Smith to anyone. In addition to Richard I would also like to say that the receptionists at Eaton Smith were all extremely lovely and welcoming."

"I can't thank Richard enough for all his help and advice during a very stressful time. I found the service he provided first class. I would recommend Richard to anyone."

“We just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your help and guidance through a truly traumatic time. Many thanks”

A Client

I was very satisfied with the service I received, I was well informed and felt very valued as a customer. I have recommended the company to clients and told them about your quality of service. 

Having received advice from 2 previous solicitors without satisfactory outcomes, I was recommended to talk to Eaton Smith. From the outset Richard was very thoughtful and helpful. He managed to make a complicated legal challenge /  situation comprehensible.  Although a stressful and emotional case at times, Richard consistently provided reassurances and responded to the many twists and turns of the case as they emerged. Richard brought what had been a long and lengthy battle to a satisfactory conclusion thanks to his perseverance and professionalism.
