We’re a family law firm of ‘people people’. When we take your case we take it personally.
In a famous law judgement in 1932, Lord Justice Greer defined the normal British Citizen as ‘the man on the Clapham Omnibus’. If he were making the judgement today he would, of course, also add ‘the woman on the Clapham Omnibus’. The fact is that the normal British Citizen doesn’t have to deal with the law very often so, if you need to get involved in a ‘personal law’ issue, no matter how straightforward or complicated, it’s important you find a lawyer who can be your friend, and explain everything in a fair and transparent fashion.
Buying a new house is one of the biggest events of your entire life. Moving-in is just an amazing experience. There is no moment you could imagine feeling more proud of yourself and excited for the amazing things you’re going to do throughout your time in that home. You’ll lead legal help of course – and the same when the time comes to sell.
Family, Matrimonial & Divorce
Relationships can be difficult, and statistics show that not all relationships last. Even when you and your partner have no children and can amicably decide that it is not in your best interests to stay together, you can find it difficult enough to walk away from the situation. If there is a dispute it can be emotionally and financially draining. One thing we set out to do – whether it’s divorce or another family matter – is make the process as low-stress as possible.
You may think that you are always subject to the laws of the country that you are in at the moment, but that is actually not the case at all. In fact, as a citizen of England or Wales you often have the ability to return to your country of origin for legal proceedings, and especially for divorce. We have expertise in this area.
Wills and Lasting Powers of Attorney
Everybody should make a will – it protects your inheritance. Increasingly, with people going into care, and the prospect of Alzheimer’s Disease, older people need to give a loved or trusted one their Lasting Power of Attorney to ensure decisions can be made for you if you are considered ‘unfit’ to make those decisions yourself. This can be in medical situations or in financial situations (though you could select the same person for both of these situations).
Probate & Estates
If you are an executor and responsible for an estate, you’ll have to deal with the will and probate as well as loss and bereavement. It’s not the sort of paperwork everybody wants to handle, and Mancini Legal’s Trust and Probate experts are here to help.
Just when life seems to be going along smoothly something painful, injurious or debilitating can spring up to disrupt your life! Sometimes it’s your own fault or plain bad luck. Then again it may not be your fault – you can be the victim of something somebody else did, or didn’t do but should have. In that case talk to us – because if somebody else hurts you or interferes with your health and wellbeing there’s every chance you can claim compensation. Our team can help do that, generally on a ‘No Win No Fee’ basis.
If you are making a dispute against an individual, group or organization, or if someone else is making a dispute against you, then you want to take action fast.

If you have any difficulties at work then we’re here to help you. We’ll file your grievances as well as follow through with a disciplinary hearing or tribunal. We understand that these situations are very emotional and that the financial implications can be difficult to overcome.
