McAlister Family Law, Stockport opened in January 2018 with the objective of bringing city quality Family and Child Law advice to the doorstep of Stockport and Cheshire residents. We are aware that for many, facing the commute into Manchester can be time consuming and stressful but the need for top divorce and family law advice is still desperately needed.
Amanda McAlister, founder and Managing Partner, lives in Cheshire and previously headed the National family law team at Slater and Gordon Lawyers and prior to that Gorvins Solicitors in Stockport. Liz Cowell and Fiona Wood were previously partners at Pannone, Manchester and Alderley Edge. The team have taken their years of experience working at national and international firms and have translated this into a niche Children and Family Law practice.
Our office in Stockport is based on London Road, Hazel Grove. The office is small, warm and welcoming and is conveniently located near to the Family Law courts.
Our team represent high net worth individuals, entrepreneurs, business owners, and sports and media personalities. We also represent families and children in Stockport, Hazel Grove, Poynton, Disley and and surrounding areas such as New Mills and Buxton.
Our mission is to exceed our clients’ expectations in terms of expertise, service and value. We do this by:
- Fighting for fairness in all our cases
- Putting our clients and children at the centre of everything we do
- Providing a comprehensive plan to ensure that positive change can happen so that life can move forward
- By ensuring value is at the centre of our pricing – we will focus on outcomes and agree fixed or capped fees wherever possible
- Making sure you know who is doing the work – you will receive personal service from our team of experienced family lawyers
- Giving you clear recommendations, practical solutions and guidance – we will not just recite the law and we will not sit on the fence
Our Divorce and Finance Team
Led by Fiona Wood, our Divorce and Finance team has a reputation for excellence and are members of a variety of prestigious organisations, such as The International Academy of Family Lawyers, Resolution, and the National Association of Arbitrators. Many of the cases in which the team act have an international family law element, so we have strategic partnerships in place with other law firms and specialists around the world to ensure a global approach to every case where relevant.
McAlister Family Law handles all aspects of divorce law, especially those involving hidden assets, valuable and/or complex corporate structures, complex legal issues, trusts and multiple or disputed jurisdictions. We act equally for those seeking to protect their wealth and those fighting to claim their fair share.
Our Children Law Team
Our children team is led by Christopher Fairhurst, a member of the Resolution and Law Society Children’s panel. We act for parents, grandparents, step-parents and even the children themselves. Our services cover child arrangements orders, child abduction, adoption and surrogacy.
