Oxford Law group OUR SERVICEs

How we can help

Our directors and solicitors have a wealth of knowledge and experience in their fields - which means we can provide advice that really makes a difference. We provide advice and practical solutions in the following areas:

Care Proceedings - your children

If you are involved with Social Workers or the Social Services Department, we can provide specialist advice and assistance.

We are one of the leading local law firms dealing with care proceedings and have considerable experience in representing parents, other family members and children. We will work with you to provide sympathetic and speedy advice in this sensitive area.
