By Louise Martin – Director, Solicitor & Family Mediator

In March 2017, we sealed our commitment to supporting the armed ​forces in our local community by signing up to the Armed Forces Covenant to recognise the value that serving and veteran personnel, and their military families, have to our business, our community and our country.

We have, since that time, upheld our promise to members of the armed forces, their spouses and veterans, by offering discounts on our legal services, to the benefit of many past and current clients.

We have now achieved bronze award in recognition of our statement of intent to support defence personnel as a UK employer. Our organisation is now listed as a bronze award holder on the ERS website

For details of our Armed Forces Pledge, see below: –
