This increase has led to a flexible approach in the way that advice is delivered with Partner Leesa Clemow having relocated to the firm’s Cosham office to meet the demands.
Leesa is now offering out of hours telephone consultations to meet the growing demand.
Leesa says: “The rise in separation enquiries is sad to see however not unexpected due to the impact upon relationships during Covid19. We are doing all we can to provide clear legal advice to those who need us at a time which is convenient to them. My out of hours appointments allow clients who perhaps work shifts in hospitals or other organisations to arrange a time to speak to me when they are available”.
“The flexible consultation times available over the phone are proving popular with individuals who may need to seek legal advice without their partner knowing in order to protect themselves from potential domestic abuse. We know that having access to the right legal advice early on in the court process can make the experience a lot smoother – while also protecting the interests of all parties involved.”
