As far as new clients are concerned, we offer to them a first meeting with us by phone or Skype.

If you are self-isolating and/or have had any of the symptoms you are recommended to alert you to the need to self-isolate, please contact us and appropriate arrangements will be made to advise and help you by phone or Skype.

As the situation develops we will continue to be alert to government advice and will keep you updated as to any changes in our procedures and plans.


Stop Press – “Bank of Mum and Dad”

Recently the team, headed by Charlotte, had considerable success in obtaining a Judgment that an advance of family money in 2011 was a loan and therefore recoverable as opposed to the position advanced by the other side that it was a gift.

Warning! We suggest you always get advice before making substantial advances, for example for house deposits.

“During my divorce I changed from another firm of lawyers to Mercy Messenger. They are streets ahead of anyone else, as soon as they took over I felt confident I was getting the best advice. I have since
recommended Mercy Messenger
