A bit rich divorce lawyers and your husband

A bit rich divorce lawyers and your husband can be an attractive combination if your spouse has decided you should part as friends but wants to hold you by his measure of what is fair rather than let fat cat solicitors take all his wealth. Michael Brennan, a bit rich divorce lawyer at Cheshire solicitors Stonehewer Moss, obtained his law degree in the balmy summer of 1990 and keeps cherished memories of the surprise progress of England at Italia 1990 to the soundtrack of Pavarotti; the goal of David Platt against Belgium was a thing of beauty. Being in the eye of the beholder, a celebrity footballer may occasionally surprise us by his choice of bride but his wealth outstrips all other considerations and sadly love fades, perhaps also beauty, so divorce and the practitioners of this dark art, lawyers, may have to be faced. Michael says, ” I had the pleasure of meeting one football celebrity well over a decade ago professionally; I was in awe of him but his star quality was really apparent before he walked into my office as he charmed all the secretaries outside who did not know who he was yet had them in hysterics. I like to think I helped him in a difficult situation and I charged nothing; any client can come here for a no obligation chat no matter what his or her financial circumstances. I applaud Garry Linaker for denouncing fat cat divorce lawyers, I despise those firms that trawl for high net worth clients myself; but I think it is unfair to call us all manipulative. Some men that divorce unquestionably seek to manipulate devoted wives to take their self interested terms rather than use a professional divorce solicitor; it is vital that such wives know that the measure the court applies is fairness and judges will not be manipulated by lawyers from that aim. My advice to the spouse of anyone using anti lawyer  rhetoric to get what they want when they want to divorce you is to see a solicitor for a free consultation and get a fixed fee agreement; if you cannot afford a fixed fee yourself but your spouse has all the means, a specialist divorce solicitor will be able to negotiate a legal services arrangement with your spouse or apply to the court for a legal services order if he will  not be sensible and fund your representation. At Stonehewer Moss I favour collaborative law, sitting round the table with your spouse and his trained lawyer under an agreement not to litigate in court; it is civilised and any civilised spouse should welcome it by instructing his own solicitor with the collaborative law qualification. Resolution has a website with a search engine of collaborative lawyers near your home I recommend you consider and the first thing you agree is how the lawyers will be paid, at a fixed fee from your matrimonial resources. You keep control and have independent advice; a well intentioned spouse wanting to divorce you should not deny you that by frightening you that the lawyers will take all the cash. Divorce solicitors can help spouses  at a disadvantage ensure they are not manipulated by their powerful ex. ” A bit rich divorce lawyers and your husband  may not be a match made in heaven but appearances can be deceptive; celebrities and the powerful may manipulate to get ahead, hiding behind their appearance from a reality lawyers are trained to analyse and contest it  if not what it seems.
