Goodsells Family Law is a niche Family Law practice, headed by Donna Goodsell who prides herself in providing a sensitive, intelligent, highly skilled, personal and expert service to every client.
Donna’s accolades include:
- Advanced level membership of the Solicitors Regulation Authority’s Family Law Panel
- Resolution Specialist Accreditation in Children Law and Complex Financial and Property Matters
- Over 20 years exclusive practice in Divorce and Family Law
- She is also a Collaborative Lawyer
Whilst Donna enjoys very close working relationships with experienced barristers and mediators she will give you unrestricted, exclusive attention whenever required, beyond the constraints of conventional office hours. Donna gives guidance and support on a one-to-one basis and never delegates her commitment to you. She prides herself in her hands-on approach, and enjoys consistent client feedback that they value the personal service she provides.
As a Collaboratively trained lawyer, Donna can offer a non-confrontational approach to dispute resolution. Collaborative law is often appropriate in circumstances where although communication between the separating couple remains amicable, the issues are complex and unlike mediation, benefit from immediate solicitor advice.
As an accredited Resolution Specialist, Donna endeavours to minimise conflict between separating couples and to resolve the issues between them as amicably as possible. However, her first priority is to protect her client and preserve their best interests. Therefore, if necessary, she will take swift and firm court action to safeguard her clients’ interests.
Donna trained and practised at top, specialist, Legal 500 firms, having qualified as a solicitor in 1997, since which time she has worked in central London before deciding in 2008, to set up Goodsells Family Law. Having a detailed knowledge of and expertise in Family Law, Donna focuses on the financial consequences of relationship breakdown, often involving complex issues.
She is also highly experienced in cases involving the resolution of disputes relating to children.
Donna lives locally and is thrilled to have achieved her ambition to bring the quality of a West End service to Clapham. Goodsells enjoys an excellent reputation for first class customer service and successful results.
