No matter how hard we try, sometimes disagreements are inevitable. Whether this happens between family, people who work together or those with any other kind of professional or personal relationship, finding the right way to resolve a dispute is essential. Not only can successfully resolving your issues give you peace of mind, but it may also allow you to repair a damaged relationship, letting you move forward in a positive way.



At AMD Solicitors, we believe it’s always best to settle your disagreements in a non-confrontational way wherever possible. That’s why we have trained specialists in family mediation, civil mediation and collaborative law on our team who can help you deal with your issues in a productive, more harmonious way. These options are particularly suitable for anyone in a dispute where it is important to maintain an on-going relationship afterwards, such as people going through a divorce or where there are disputes between a business and one of their customers or suppliers. Going down one of these routes can also be faster and more cost effective than the alternatives.



Unfortunately, it is not always possible or desirable to deal with your issues through non-confrontational methods and going to court may be the best or only option. In these situations, we can help guide you through all of the processes involved in taking or defending a court action, whether in a family or civil matter. Based on our many decades of legal experience, we can offer you a realistic idea of how much such action will cost and how long reaching a resolution is likely to take.

What our Clients say

Star Star Star Star Star

We use this firm as our family solicitors and have always found they provide a reliable and conscientious service. Recently AMD provided the conveyancing on a property purchase for us. They offered very timely advice ( saved us from a couple of potential disasters!) and were proactive and communicative. We felt well looked after by our solicitor Laura W and her efficient secretary Jo. Great firm which doesn’t dither around and keeps the client informed and well advised.

The Henleaze team at AMD carried out three conveyances for us last year, and we were delighted with the speed and efficiency of every aspect. One of the transactions required a lot of detailed work, and we were really impressed with the apparent ease, and calmness, with which everything was handled. In addition, our conveyancing executive was delightful to work with, which made the experience positively enjoyable. An unhesitating recommendation.
