P. Mohaministrani, london
"When times seemed hard and apparent incompetence of others around us seemed to far outweigh our own resources, it was a breath of fresh air to have you dealing with this important issue on our behalf. Your enthusiasm and professionalism knew no boundaries along with your sense of humour, which I remember has been tested to certain limits, but at least we could smile whilst making progress."
Simon & Liz, Carmarthen
"After another Central London Education Law Firm failed, Mike was confident with my case from the offest and succeeded in reinstating me back into Leicester Medical School! What makes Mike so good, is not just his really good way with words, his vast experience or his in-depth knowledge of law, but his genuine compassion for his clients. He genuinely treats his clients like his own children. I will be referring a lot of people to this firm in the future. Thanks again SinclairsLaw, you have genuinely changed my life and I will be eternally grateful"
"Michael was absolutely amazing. I had so much confidence in him and he put me at ease and explained step by step the procedures throughout. I got the outcome I wanted which was best for my son."

Apart from bereavement, divorce and separation are probably the most traumatic experience confronted by any family, which can often result in conflict and heartbreak. At times such as these, it is essential to obtain specialist advice from an experienced solicitor to ensure peace of mind and a successful outcome. Sinclairslaw (formerly Sinclairs Solicitors) prides itself as a firm that adopts a sympathetic and realistic, but effective, approach.
At Sinclairslaw we have four specialist family solicitors, each of whom have in excess of 20 years experience. Suzanne Thomas, Head of the Family Law Department, is a member of the Family Law Panel and is also one of only two solicitors in the Vale of Glamorgan who is accredited to the Law Society's Advanced Family Law Panel. Suzanne is based at our Penarth Office. She can be contacted by e mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
Ms Jane Williams is the Family Specialist based in our Cardiff Office. She is also a Family Law Panel Member, a trained Mediator with Family Resolution and undertakes all Family Matters, including a full range of Family Mediation Services. Ms Williams can be contacted at email@example.com.
Mr Gregory Evans and Mr Robert North also specialise in Public Law Child care matters.
The outcome of your case can have far reaching effects on your future and upon the future of your children. It could thus have far reaching consequences which may effect your future quality of life. It is therefore important that you obtain specialist legal advice at the outset to offer you the best opportunity of a successful outcome.
We can help with the following matters:
- Financial Settlement
- Disputes about Children
- Domestic Violence
- Civil Partnership Act 2004
- Human Rights Child Abduction including International Child Abduction
All Private Family Mediation issues concerning Finances or Children.
We have the benefit of a contract with the Legal Services Commission and as such Sinclairslaw (formerly Sinclairs Solicitors) are able to undertake Legal Aid work subject to financial eligibility.
You should be aware that following the introduction of new legislation, Public Funding has been removed from scope for most Private Law divorces and related matters concerning children or family finances. In order to satisfy the current legal criteria, there must be an element of domestic violence before public funding will be considered.
Legal Aid in Family Law
In order to apply for full legal aid to bring proceedings before the court in a family case you will need to make an application. This can take time, and will involve the Legal Services Commission receiving a formal application on a standard application form usually known as a CLS APP 3 form. These are forms we will complete and submit on your behalf when you make an appointment to see us. However if you want to make an application for Public Funding it is always helpful if you bring up to date information in relation to your finances, and ideally three months recent bank statements.
