At HRS we are one of the leading firms representing people who face action by the local authority and the prospect of their children being removed in to care.

It is not easy to stand up to a Local Authority with a team of Social Workers and lawyers against you.  It is not easy to change.  It is never easy to take a different path.  At HRS, we know these things.  That is why we work tirelessly to help people who, often through no fault of their own, find themselves involved with Social services.  Our job is to help you keep your family together and we have some significant experience and success in this regard.

We are the biggest Care law team in the West Midlands.  We are in court doing the job day in and day out.  Be it Care Proceedings, an EPO, Secure Accommodation, contact with a child in Care, Special Guardianship or Adoption please call any of our offices for a free first interview.  If you need help after office hours, please do call our emergency advice line on 07960 126872.

We represent people every day in Court against Birmingham City Council, Sandwell MBC, Dudley MBC and Walsall, amongst others, throughout the West Midlands and beyond, from Liverpool to Essex. These cases are too specialist and important to trust to lawyers who do not have the necessary expertise. Ask for a Law Society Children Panel Solicitor at any one of our five offices.

We will get things started at the first free interview on the very day a client gets in touch. We will arrange Legal Aid, which is almost always available, and make contact with the Local Authority lawyers about protecting your position in the case, with a view to keeping the family together.


Whether you are planning to get married, entering in to a civil patnership or simply moving in together, there are steps you can take to protect your rights and assets.
