Meet the HRS TEAM

At HRS we work in dedicated teams, members of which specialise within an already specialist firm. With this approach the client knows that not only are they represented by someone who has chosen family law as their expert area of law but that even within that parameter our lawyers are allocated to even more specialist teams. 

Dedicated Law Teams

Our people do the same job, using the same law day in and day out. We believe that this is the way to be the best we can be and deliver the best service for our clients.
