Here at Higgins Miller we specialise in family law, and that means dealing with people when they are at their most vulnerable and stressed. When people approach us to work with them on issues such as divorce, wills and probate and children disputes, it is often their first experience of dealing with legal matters and, as local lawyers, we do our very best to make them feel as relaxed as possible. In the first instance, this means speaking to them in the kind of language they can understand, avoiding legal jargon and complex technical vocabulary in order to make sure that they know exactly what’s happening at each stage of the process. We also operate a completely transparent fee system which, when combined with offers such as free initial appraisals, means that people can seek our advice or even embark on full-scale legal action without the fear of legal bills running out of control.
The fact that we describe ourselves as local lawyers and offer a friendly and sympathetic welcome doesn’t impact on the quality offered by our highly experienced team. On the contrary, we pride ourselves on delivering legal advice which is based on a combination of highly qualified expertise and the hard-won experience of helping clients. Our local lawyers make a point of staying completely up to date with the latest developments in the legal world, and we make use of this know-how in order to deliver advice which is aimed, wherever possible, at resolving the issues involved without a court case becoming necessary. If your problem does involve appearing in court, however, you can be certain that our local lawyers will be supporting you every step of the way, making sure that your legal rights are upheld and your voice is heard just as clearly and powerfully as the other party’s.
As local lawyers we deal with clients from Stockport, Manchester, Greater Manchester and the wider North West. We understand exactly the kind of service our clients are seeking from local lawyers, and always make sure we offer emotional support and a sympathetic hearing at the same time as setting out exactly what the legal position is for every client. We know that people enjoy dealing with local lawyers like those at Higgins Miller rather than the more anonymous services offered by large corporate bodies because that kind of support is just as important as the quality of the legal advice being offered. We offer a personal, tailored service, and whether clients need a few questions answered, a short appointment to clarify a legal matter or more in-depth work on something like interaction with Social Services, we’ll do whatever it takes to ensure that they are supported and advised through every stage of the process.
As dedicated local lawyers we like to be there whenever our clients need us, and that includes over the Christmas period. Although our offices will close at 4pm on 23rd December and reopen at 9am on 2nd January, we will be offering an emergency service throughout the Christmas period. We understand that emotions often run high at this time of the year, particularly where family matters are concerned, and if clients need to contact us urgently they can ring the emergency telephone number 07837 124 732 and we’ll do our best to get back to them as quickly as possible. Alternatively, they could email us at the address given out below, as email messages will be checked regularly over the Christmas break.
If you’d like to learn more about everything we offer as local lawyers, or our availability over the Christmas period, please call us on 0161 429 7251 or email us at [email protected] We’ve recently passed our Cyber Essential accreditation, something which demonstrates our forward thinking attitude and determination to remain ahead of the competition. A 20 minute appraisal can be provided free of charge, and if you want to find out more we’ll provide the first appointment for a fixed fee, so you don’t have to worry about how much our advice is going to cost.
