The firm’s founder, Amanda McAlister, has a long-standing history with and unrivalled reputation for acting in Police divorce cases and has represented hundreds of Police officers and personnel. She was the very first Family Lawyer to recognize that there was a huge shortage of lawyers with expert knowledge on Police divorce and pensions. Her work with the Police began almost 20 years ago when working at Gorvins Solicitors; she built and developed a team of experts specifically trained to represent Police officers and that team very quickly grew to be one of the largest, most well-renowned in the country. She continued with this valuable work throughout her career, including with Russell Jones and Walker which was acquired by Slater and Gordon Lawyers.
McAlister Family Law is now the only niche child and Family Law firm offering services to Police officers and personnel.
“Amanda has high standards and ensures that all her colleagues stay focused. She is an expert in her field and I have recommended the services provided by her and the family law team to many colleagues."
David Bennett – Former Secretary of the Metropolitan Police Federation of England and Wales
our years of experience has taught us that Police officers can often get a raw deal unless specialist advice is taken. We often hear other professionals talk about the Police “golden handshake” referring to a commutation on retirement. What they fail to understand is that considerable contributions are deducted from the Police officer’s salary
many firms describe themselves as the Police Family Law specialists, but few have the combined experience of the experts at McAlister Family Law. Our team comprises solicitors who are on prestigious panels such as the Law Society Advance Children and Family Law panel, as well as having several accreditations in more specialist areas - and we have breadth and depth in advising on pensions and divorce, and challenging the decisions of the Child Maintenance Service.
we are results-driven and deliver on our promises. We know that shift patterns, work demands, and the general pressure of the job can take its toll. We are here to support you every step of the way. Your case will be handled by a qualified solicitor who is a Police Family Law expert. We will let you choose which form of communication is more convenient to you; face to face, Skype calls, Facetime or WhatsApp, it’s your choice - we will make ourselves available at all times.
how much a case will cost is often the greatest concern of our clients. We offer Police officers and support staff considerable discount on our fees. In addition, we offer a range of highly competitive fixed fee products which allow clients to budget and manage their finances at what can be an extremely difficult and testing time.
