Family/Divorce

GC Solicitors has a team of dedicated Family solicitors that specialise in family and matrimonial matters.

We understand the distress and concern that is often the result of the breakdown of family relationships. Our team of experienced, qualified solicitors offer friendly, professional and confidential advice. We take the time to listen to you and give you the information and advice you need.

Our solicitors are focused on resolving family disputes in a constructive and cost effective manner and, wherever possible, without the need to go to court. Where proceedings have already begun or when it becomes necessary to go to court our solicitors are able to represent you.

We are committed to offering quality Family Legal Services across the board. We have a Family Legal Aid franchise and are continuing to accept Legal Aid work in addition to our private practice.

Public Child Care Law

Our Public Childcare Law department are specialists in their field with an in depth understanding of how the law may affect you and your family once social services are involved.

We represent parents, family members and children through their guardians in all Public Law Proceedings. These include circumstances where the Local Authority has applied for Emergency Protection Orders, Care Orders or where parents apply for contact with children in care and discharge of Care Orders. We can attend Child Protection Conferences and can assist where children are voluntarily accommodated. We are there to champion parents and provide them with advice and reassurance during this stressful and frightening time.

Public Funding from the Legal Aid Agency is normally granted to all parents and children involved in care proceedings, irrespective of financial circumstances.

We can also offer advice, assistance and representation for Adoption proceedings.

Personal Injury

Our specialist team of personal injury solicitors will deal with you as an individual when your life has been affected by another’s careless actions. We stand by you and fight your corner.

Our personal injury lawyers have successfully fought thousands of cases for clients who have had accidents in England and Wales, including cases turned away by other solicitors.

As our client you do not need to worry as we offer No Win No Fee arrangements in all suitable cases. You can claim compensation through us for a wide range of accidents, including those involving road traffic collision, trips or slips and the workplace.

We offer a wealth of experience that allows us to maximise our settlements for you by discussing in depth the far-reaching impact that an accident has had on your life. We aim to deliver the best possible awards, including any lost earnings. We also calculate your award to include loss of future earnings and expenses, such as hospital parking and urgent physiotherapy.

Crime

At GC Solicitors we have a dedicated team of criminal defence specialists who can represent anyone accused of a crime at police stations, Magistrates’ Courts and Crown Courts. We are here to protect your interests and to make sure you receive the best possible advice every step of the way.

Our experienced team of criminal defence lawyers can offer advice in all criminal matters including:

  • Murder
  • Manslaughter
  • Rape or sexual assault
  • GBH / ABH / common assault
  • Drug possession and supply
  • Fraud and confiscation proceedings
  • Money laundering
  • Appeals against sentence or conviction
  • Firearms

We offer free initial legal advice on criminal law as soon as you have been arrested at the police station. We can be contacted on 07773 002783, which is our 24 hour emergency help number.

Motoring/Transport Regulatory Law

GC Solicitors are one of the few local law firms with a transport law expert that can represent clients all over the UK.

Ian’s knowledge as a qualified vehicle examiner has led to successful defences in cases brought by both trading standards and the police. He can also help road haulage operators defend cases regarding tachograph analysis, overweight vehicles, vehicle maintenance and operator licencing.

At GC Solicitors our goal is to give our clients the best possible chance of retaining their drivers’ licence. To lose your driving licence is not just an inconvenience, it could mean losing your job. We look at all the circumstances of the allegation in detail and consider if it can be defended. If it cannot be defended then we look at the arguments that may enable the client to keep their drivers’ licence.

Every case we take on is different and we have found that the best results are obtained by taking the time to understand all aspects of the case, analysing each client’s independent circumstances. Our purpose is to always get the best possible outcome for you.

Our Transport Department can assist you with all matters including the following:

  • Accidents
  • Dangerous and careless driving
  • Drink driving
  • Insurance
  • Notice of Intended Prosecution
  • Parking fines
  • Speeding and speed cameras
  • Vehicle condition offences
