Portrait of Alison Macaulay, family law specialist for Harris + Harris, Wells, Somerset, UKAlison Macaulay  – BA | Solicitor & Partner

Alison Macaulay is Head of  Family Law at Harris + Harris.  With an extensive and flourishing practice covering Wells, Frome, Bath, Taunton and beyond, Alison is one of the most experienced and highly-regarded family law solicitors in the South West.

Throughout her career, Alison has been at the vanguard of her profession.  She is a member of the Resolution Family Panel (formerly known as the Solicitors Family Law Association) with whom she was appointed one of the first family law accredited specialists in the country.  In addition, Alison is also a Mediator and a trained Collaborative Lawyer.

Her legal expertise is in all areas of family law but it is in resolving disputes over both finance/property and children her reputation excels.  In particular, Alison is regarded as the lawyer of choice for those clients with large or complex financial estates or issues.

She is very much the modern lawyer, seeking to find practical and fair solutions for her clients that cost them the least in both financial and emotional stress.  However, on those occasions when negotiations fail, Alison does not shirk from robustly defending her clients’ interests. She has been described by a professional colleague as ‘a force to be reckoned with.’

At your first meeting with Alison at her offices in either Wells or Frome, she will talk through with you your case and discuss the best way forward for you.  She will also explain how your case can be funded, so that you can choose the method of payment that is best suited to you. That first meeting is also entirely free.
