Excellent service from Jonathan Dunkley. I would highly recommend him. I am a solicitor myself but know little re family law. I was involved in a disputed finance hearing in my divorce. He negotiated a very successful outcome and was a huge support throughout the hearings. Very calm but firm. Thanks so much. More...

Rona Samuel provided an excellent, professional and personal service. I would definitely recommend Major Family Law and Rona to others. Rona went above and beyond even going into work on her days off to work on my case. She understood my needs and was easy to talk to and made me feel at ease at all times. Her knowledge was outstanding and she kept me informed about everything that was happening in my case. Major Family Law gave me detailed itemised bills so the costs were very transparent. Rona made things easier in a difficult time and I would highly recommend her and Major Family Law. More...

Rona Samuel Major Family LawWell how do I start to describe this lady and her expertise?Rona is a true professional but at the same time is totally client focused and has guided me with her very level headed but very caring approach, through what has been quite a long and complex divorce. Rona leaves no stone unturned and has quite a knack of predicting the opposition in their every move. I would never hesitate to recommend Rona's services and also the understanding nature of Major Family Law as a firm in general. One in a million for sure!!! More...

Major Family Law were recommended to us, we were away from home on holiday and in need of some urgent legal advice for our family. Sam Carter met with us at short notice. Sam was professional, calm, confident and clear in the expert advice he gave, which enabled us to formulate a plan and continue with our holiday. Also, the Major Family Law offices allowed us to be relaxed and discuss the matters at hand without any pressure. We would recommend Major Family Law and will be transferring our business into Sam's capable hands. More...

Major Family Law became my first choice when I was greeted by a very friendly lady on the telephone. Her lovely manner put me at ease and assured me that this was a company I would be happy to deal with, and I was not disappointed. I would like to thank Moji Sobowale for dealing with my separation and divorce. She is a lovely, approachable and down to earth lady, whilst maintaining a high level of professionalism. Moji responded to each and every one of my emails within 24 hours, giving me confidence that the legalities were being promptly dealt with, and personal assurance that my smallest concerns were receiving her acknowledgment and attention.I would not hesitate in recommending Major Family Law. They will be my first choice should I need profession legal assistance in the future.Kind regards, and many thanks to you all. More...

I had an introductory session with Sam Carter from Major's regarding child care issues that are causing concern. The response to my request (for advice) was extremely quick, I was scheduled an appointment just three days from my initial approach. Reception was warm, friendly and relaxing. Most importantly Sam's advice on what courses of action were open to me, process, timelines and cost were well explained. His personal manor was open, honest and I felt like I was sharing my issue with a friend. My situation is still a 'Watch this space' but based on my experience to date, if I have to proceed further I will definitely be going to Major Family Law. More...

Thank you for the very professional support during my recent divorce. This professionalism was accompanied by kindness and understanding. My divorce was very difficult and, at times, traumatic, but Sam Carter and the team moved my case along efficiently from the start to hearing. Queries either by telephone or email were always acted upon by return and this really inspired confidence in my Solicitor. My decision to choose Major Family Law to handle my divorce was certainly the right one!
Even though we are still waiting for the final Consent Order every time I see an email it concerns me but after I speak with Sam I feel at ease.

After recently requiring paper work signed for my upcoming wedding, Major Family Law was my first choice.

We unfortunately had a set back, that required clarity from both our wedding planner and Major Family Law. This was dealt with in a timely manner, with no fuss.If you are in the North East of England and require specialist family legal advice, Major Family Law are the people you need to speak to. More...

Jonathan Dunkley of Major Family Law has been helping with a couple of things - most recently an unusual road traffic / speeding incident, that could have catastrophic knock-on consequences (connected to UK citizenship). He's been incredibly helpful in communicating with CPS on the unusual circumstances, using his experience in such matters to hep get the relevant points across, in the appropriate way to try to achieve the right outcome. His expert input and guidance has been much appreciated - would certainly recommend him to anyone in need of a solicitor. More...

I can't thank Major Family Law enough for the service I received during my protracted divorce proceedings. At such a stressful time in my life, the circumstances to my case could have easily taken a heavy toll on my health and emotional wellbeing. The advice and guidance I received helped to keep me focused on the matters in hand and ultimately, obtain the desired outcome to my case. I can't stress enough how grateful I am to my specialist family solicitors, Joanne Major, Anna Hunter and their support team for ensuring I received a thoroughly professional and personal service during such testing circumstances. I imagine that divorce is never a pleasant experience, even in the most amicable of cases, however, it's reassuring to know you are treated with individual care and attention by all staff members and not just simply seen as "another case".

“Major Family Law in Newcastle upon Tyne is a specialist leading family law firm I cannot recommend enough. Mrs Lucinda Connell in particular is someone that I would highly recommend to anybody going through separation whereby there are children contact issues. It is evident in the service she provides as to how experienced she is. Lucinda was honest and professional in the advice that she provided me with and worked in the what was in the best interests of my children. She tackled the most complex issues head on in a calm professional manner. All her hard work and dedication has not only helped me gain confidence but I believe she has helped gain results which will see my children and I being able to lead a less stressful and happier life, and for that I am eternally grateful.

I cannot speak highly enough of Joanne Major and her team at Major Family Law, Top Tier divorce specialist solicitors in Ponteland. I instructed Joanne to act for me in my divorce after having had an awful experience with another firm whom I initially consulted and subsequently dropped.Joanne fully understood the emotional trauma which was of huge reassurance and comfort to me during this desperate period in my life. She is highly emotionally intelligent and genuinely compassionate, and balances these rare qualities with a no nonsense, professional, legal mind to ensure fair outcomes.It would not be an overstatement to say that on occasions she carried me when I was unable to focus and think clearly. She is authentic, true and straightforward, and knows exactly how to handle both the sensitive personal side as well as the difficult, and at times, very distressing legal necessities.I would, without hesitation, highly recommend Joanne Major and her team.

I cannot recommend Joanne Major, Newcastle's top family law specialist and her team enough. I was fortunate to meet Joanne 11 years ago when she handled my divorce, however I recently found myself in need of her services again. I was hugely relieved to have tracked her down and found that she had set up her own family law firm in the Ponteland. Again, as before, her professionalism and personal touch is second to none, to keep costs down she never overcomplicated the issues or wrote un-necessary correspondence. Joanne and her team are a rare breed it seems in an profession that attracts sweeping statements, glib remarks and no thanks, but I will always be grateful to her for giving me the courage and confidence to see my case through to the end, her prognosis on the outcome right from the first meeting was always fair and realistic, her choice of Barrister carefully considered and brilliant, so too is her knowledge of the law, needless to say the outcome was more than I could have hoped for. Joanne Major is a true professional and sharp as a tack, she deserves continued success in her business, and I urge anyone looking for a top drawer family law solicitor to look no further. More...

I first used the services of Joanne Major, a leading Divorce and Family Law Specialist based on the outskirts of Newcastle upon Tyne, 9 years ago having been recommended to her by a colleague who described her as a first class family lawyer who treated each of her clients as though they were her last. Her advice and judgement was spot on and she guided and supported me in a way I could never have imagined from just a lawyer. I have since returned to Joanne Major for variation advice following my original order and I have recommended many friends and family to her over the years. She is a personable, intelligent, compassionate woman who goes the extra mile for her clients and is client focussed and cost aware from the outset. If you are unsure who to approach I recommend you at least meet with her in person to see for yourself she is the only family lawyer in the North East of England worthy of instructing. More...

I approached Major Family Law, the leading divorce and family law specialists in Newcastle and Hexham, after hearing a great deal of positive feedback from some of my divorced friends and acquaintances. I had recently split from my husband after a long relationship, and despite having a very young child I was absolutely certain that our marriage was over.From my very first phone call to make an appointment with Joanne Major, a top divorce and family law specialist solicitor in Newcastle, I felt that I was in excellent hands. Her firm is professional, welcoming and non-judgemental. I received balanced, fair and accurate advice throughout my time with them. I would imagine that in every divorce there is information that is upsetting or difficult to take. In those instances I was supported and given truthful yet reassuring advice. Always with the next steps in mind. Major Family Law treats you as an individual and pays attention to your whole person. Your well-being, and that of your children, is of utmost importance to them. A rarity with other law firms, from conversations I have had with divorcees!In my case, having weighed up all of my options we completed the divorce using the collaborative approach. I felt supported and valued throughout the process. If I was unsure on any matter I was given a clear explanation. Any emails I sent were answered promptly, any phone calls attended to. I was prepared fully by Joanne Major for each collaborative meeting, and she always took time to check how I was afterwards. Even when communication broke down between myself and my husband, Major Family Law mediated for us and helped us get back on the right track for the good of our child.My divorce is now finalised and I have since recommended Major Family Law to other people who are in the same unfortunate situation as I was, knowing that they and their family could not be in better hands. I do not hesitate in also recommending them here and now to you. More...
