In recent years, alternative dispute resolution (ADR) has become an increasingly popular and efficient way of resolving family issues in respect to financial matters or arrangements for children.

Often quicker and more cost-effective than traditional court options, ADR (also known as DR — dispute resolution) can provide a bespoke way to achieve the right result, even in complex family law disputes.

In our search for guidance on a parentage claim, we were fortunate to find Joe Ailion — a true gem. His expertise and professionalism in Court matters were evident from the start… But it was his immediate response to our call for help that truly set him apart. Joe attentively listened to our story and addressed each of our concerns with a depth of understanding and empathy rarely seen in a solicitor. Beyond his unquestionable professional expertise, Joe brings a level of personal care and emotional intelligence to his work. His honest and straightforward advice, coupled with a genuine warmth, created a sense of security for our family during a tumultuous time. For us, Joe is not just a solicitor — he’s a beacon of hope and reassurance.

Leanne [Instrall]’s support and advice was always greatly appreciated. I always particularly liked how she put the needs of the children at the fore of her advice. The peace of mind this order has given me is invaluable.
