About Us

Owen Lawton Solicitors was founded in 1996 in Plymouth city centre and have since established themselves as a firm specialising in family law...

Family Law

We specialise in care proceedings and other public law disputes.

For parents who face the prospect of social services seeking to remove your children there is often free legal aid available irrespective of your means.

For grandparents and others involved in such potential disputes there may be legal aid available but there is likely to be a tests of your means and the merits of the application.

Please ensure that you contact us as soon as possible so that you can get the appropriate advice when you need it most.

Whilst we used to offer assistance with other areas of family law since changes in the legal aid system introduced in 2013 this firm no longer takes on work in private law proceedings such as divorce, financial claims and disputes over arrangements for children (residence and contact).
