Personal Solicitors

Richard Nelson LLP’s personal solicitors encompass a number of different specialisms involving legal advice and representation for individuals. Our personal legal services cater for all individuals in a number of different areas, including family law, inheritance disputes, the protection of vulnerable adults and public inquiries.

Our Private Client Services

Experienced in advising and representing individuals in a wide range of cases.

Each personal client case is unique, which means that we work hard to understand your individual needs and goals. In many of these cases, the outcomes that you’re seeking might be completely different from those of someone else in a similar situation, so we believe that it’s essential that we take the time to understand exactly what resolution you would like to reach.

From the first conversation we have, our advice will be practical and totally impartial, giving you all the information you need to make informed, clear-headed decisions about how to proceed with your situation. Whilst we aim to provide the best service possible, our work is also personalised. We understand that many private client cases can be very sensitive and emotionally involved and our lawyers will always treat you with respect and dignity.

Our legal services are accredited with the Law Society’s Lexcel mark of practice excellence, which means that you can have total confidence in our private client solicitors’ high standards of technical competence and excellent client care. Many of our personal solicitors have also received individual accreditations and come highly recommended by professional bodies and previous clients alike.

If you’re interested in speaking to us more about your individual circumstances, get in touch with us to arrange a free initial telephone consultation. During this call we will aim to offer impartial advice to help you understand what your next steps should be. There are no obligations beyond this first phone call, but if you decide to continue to work with us we will continue to provide high quality, impartial services to help you reach a satisfactory resolution.
