domestic abuse

We offer a specailist service for victims of domestic abuse. Victims of domestic abuse are one of our priority groups and we seek to actively support victims through increased access to legal advice.

Our solicitors are both experienced and sympathetic and can offer advice on legal protection for the victim and their children. We appreciate that it is a big step for a victim of domestic abuse to seek legal advice and therefore we offer urgent appointments for clients who require immediate protection.

Not only can we offer legal advice to domestic abuse victims but we can also give practical guidance to those victims trying to leave an abusive partner. We work closely with the Derwentside Domestic Abuse Team and we offer a ‘drop in clinic’ at their offices which are located on Stanley Front Street in County Durham. Angela McGurk is an elected a member of the Derwentside Domestic Abuse management committee.

If you take legal action to protect yourself or your family from domestic abuse, you may qualify for legal aid without having to meet the normal financial conditions. This offers a lot of clients piece of mind during this difficult time.
