Cambridge Solicitors Divorce, Mediation and Family Law Duane Plant Cambridge Divorce Solicitor, Collaborative Lawyer and Family Mediator who is at the forefront of developing constructive and highly effective methods of resolving difficult, sensitive, complex and intractable family disputes. He explains, “I help people to separate and divorce with dignity. I help people to resolve their family disputes about child custody or financial and divorce settlements. Unresolved conflict causes harm to families. I give clients the advice and support I would want if I was the client. People are entitled to be in control of their divorce. I am passionate about changing the way families experience divorce.”

Choosing the best Divorce Lawyer to work for you – and with you

Duane says, “Finding a divorce lawyer is a very personal choice. Even after more than 25 years of helping clients I have never forgotten how difficult it is to take the first step to make an appointment or call a divorce lawyer. I take pride in being approachable. I will listen. I want to know this is important to you. To make it easier, that first call is free. You are not committing to anything. You need to get it right. I want to help you to make the right choices, right from the start. In that way we can make it cost-efficient.”

“Can Do” attitude

Understandably clients come from all over the country and so Duane can see clients wherever it suits them whether in Cambridge or London or elsewhere. They are usually recommended by former clients or professional advisers or are attracted by the high quality personal service and ‘can do’ attitude to resolving family disputes as constructively, effectively and as efficiently as possible.
