The Team

 

Family and Litigation

Ken

Ken Pearson is head of our family and litigation team. He is a partner and solicitor and has been working in this field for over 40 years.

Your case will be handled by Ken personally. We specialise in family matters from divorce and separation, to financial disputes, children matters, care proceedings and domestic violence. We prepare pre and post nuptial agreements. We are one of the few firms in Cornwall still offering a Legal Aid service: we provide an initial free meeting at which we will discuss whether your case can be dealt with under Legal Aid, or otherwise we can offer competitively priced fixed fees in many cases. Remember, it will cost you nothing to find out what we can do for you.

We also deal with general litigation matters such as contested wills and disputed trusts.

We do not deal with criminal or medical negligence or No Win No Fee cases but we will direct existing clients to specialists in those fields upon request.

We advise strongly against using online services or trying to “go it alone”. Let us help you … everyone needs expert advice from time to time !
