We have our headquarters in Manchester City Centre, and we chose to locate our new offices in West Street, Alderley Edge, in response to the overwhelming demand from Cheshire residents for access to high quality, city standard family law advice without the need to travel into the city.Led by Amanda McAlister, one of the leading family law solicitors in the UK, our firm boasts a national and international reputation for its work in Child and Family Law.
“We chose this highly desirable location in order to bolster further our presence in the region,” said Amanda.
“We want to be part of the Cheshire community, so we purposefully chose to open our doors in Alderley Edge, as the village is well known and is very much seen as the “nucleus” of the county. We wanted to avoid being on a featureless business park and instead want to offer a service where are doors are always open for anyone to drop in and see us. There is parking of course, and we are offering appointments from 8am until 9pm Monday to Friday.
“Divorce and children-related legal matters frequently require discretion and privacy and our Alderley Edge location provides just that. Being out of the city centre means that we are able to offer city centre advice and service but at more local costs.”
Amanda has represented everyone from top restaurateurs, Premiership footballers and actresses, to members of the police force, teachers and civil servants. She is described by the leading legal directories as “phenomenal” and is the only family lawyer in Cheshire who holds the prestigious status of “eminent practitioner”.
“We bring intelligence, warmth and clear-sightedness to every case and are dedicated to delivering a service that vastly exceeds our clients’ expectations,” she added.
Charlotte Percy and Jake Lawrence Brown are currently working from Alderley Edge office and will shortly be joined by two new recruits.
