Everything You Need To Know About Our Company

Our history

Twenty years ago, renowned family law solicitor John Archer recognised the lack of specialist divorce practitioners in the north of England, so decided to strike out on his own – thus was born Leeds Divorce Solicitors. Founded in 1997, the company has grown from John and two paralegals working from a small office on the outskirts of the city to a dedicated, highly experienced team of twenty-five solicitors supported by dozens of administrative staff, making us one of the largest specialist firms in the United Kingdom.

During that twenty year period, Leeds Divorce Solicitors has been instructed – and been successful – in nearly ten thousand divorce cases.

This incredible mixture of skill and knowledge makes us one of the leading divorce companies in the region. We were the first firm in England dedicated solely to divorce cases. Based in the bustling heart of Leeds, we act for for clients across the United Kingdom and around the world.

Our specialist solicitors concentrate on one thing: divorce, and all that it entails. By doing this for two decades we are able to provide unparalleled expert advice on issues such as separation, child matters, financial agreements, civil partnerships, international concerns and even pre-marital agreements.

We are recommended as the best divorce firm in Leeds by both the Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners.

Our highly-qualified team of specialists follow strict guidelines and a code of practice. We are authorised and regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority. To take full advantage of our wealth of experience please contact us at the bottom of this page.

Everyone here is an expert in divorce and family law, and I am proud of the way we look after our clients – I believe in fairness, professionalism and getting the best result for you, and every single member of my team does too.”
