Protection when you need it most.
When it comes to finances and family law, we know the law
and how to achieve the fairest outcome for you
As our name suggests, we only practice Family Law. This is because we believe that when dealing with such important issues which affect you, your child / children and / or your financial future you deserve to know that the solicitor you choose lives and breathes that area of law every day. We are unaffected by the influence of other departments and pressures, allowing us to focus on the Family Law issues you are facing.
We are experts in Family Law. Our Lawyers are accredited as Specialists in Family Law by the Law Society. Our Paralegals are also accredited by the Law Society. The Law Society says ‘Accreditation acts as a hallmark of experience that a client can trust’. We use that experience to assist you with your case and to help you achieve the best possible outcome.
Our family divorce lawyers & solicitors are unique in that we charge our fees on actual time (i.e. 2-minute call charged as a 2-minute call) whereas the vast majority of solicitors charge in units where all work is rounded up in 6 minute units (so a 2 minute call is charged at 6 minutes, 7 minute meeting charged as 12 minutes). See our Fees section for more details.

I would like to directly offer my huge personal gratitude for everything you have done. The process has been seamless in what is a very stressful and challenging time. My many thanks and wishing you all the best for 2022.
I approached Brian regarding my divorce, very helpful and professional and efficient through the whole procedure.
I used Rooney Family Law for my divorce and found them to be efficient and helpful. They were all very friendly and happy to answer any and all of my questions.
I contacted Rooney family law wth regards to arranging a contact order for my kids. The advice was excellent, the cost of the services are fair and actions on the back of our meetings/discussions are prompt.
Does everything he says he will and most importantly he got me access to my kids.
Couldn’t recommend Brian and the firm enough.
Very grateful for all the help so far
I used Rooney Family Law to deal with my divorce. They explained the process and my rights in an easy-to-understand way. Their level of communication was excellent. They are upfront about their fees which helped me decide to use them. I would recommend them to anyone who needs family law help
I shopped about a fair bit before selecting Rooney Family Law to deal with my divorce. I found their website to be well laid out and very useful. The fact that they are transparent about their fees on their site appealed to me. It was fairly complex as it involved a business, pensions and other financial matters. I engaged their services and they negotiated hard to achieve a fair settlement on my behalf. They were in constant communication throughout the process.
Friendly professional advice and service.I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them.
After spending a small deposit on a house with another law firm i decided to change, and i am so glad that i did. Brian Rooney and his team, achieved my divorce in a seamless manner, even through a pandemic ! There a communication was swift, and in the manner that i preferred. I’m hoping i don’t require the use of a family law specialist again but should i do i wouldn’t hesitate in using Brian and his team.
I had Brian deal with my divorce, him and his team were excellent through the challenging times of Covid, giving good advice and getting the job done. A big thanks to them all and I would definitely recommend this company. Best wishes for a prosperous future and thanks 🙏 for their guidance throughout the process.
