A Resolution guide

The first meeting with a client can be a daunting experience and it can also set the tone for the whole lawyer/client relationship and the way the case is run. In this book senior Resolution lawyers set out the key legal elements and issues, but also offer wide-ranging insight into how family lawyers can help clients emotionally as well as legally. The book takes a chronological approach to the first meeting, examining preparation, fact-finding and terms of business, through to funding and process options, parenting issues, financial aspects and emergency procedures. It has detailed chapters on domestic violence, mental capacity and emergency procedures, and covers use of counsel, follow-up steps and how to keep the temperature of the case down through respectful correspondence. Any family lawyer wondering how the Resolution Code of Practice works in action should start here. £30 for members

Members £30; Non members £35
