Associate Solicitor • Kendal
I specialise in all aspects of matrimonial and family law – divorce, dissolution of civil partnerships, cohabitee disputes, financial settlements and disputes including children (both private law and child care proceedings).
A graduate in German and Law, I qualified as a solicitor in 1992. I have worked exclusively in family law since then and have gained extensive experience and particular interest in resolving complex financial disputes between separating couples. I am a Resolution Accredited Specialist (with particular specialisation in advanced financial provision and children law - private). I am a member of Resolution which promotes a non-confrontational approach to resolving family disputes. I am a trained mediator, and am therefore able to offer an alternative to the more traditional methods of dispute resolution.
I am approachable, down to earth and a sympathetic listener, committed to adopting a constructive approach to the resolution of often difficult and emotionally charged disputes.
I am married with two teenage children. I would rather be skiing than doing almost anything else but I am also a keen cyclist and an enthusiastic (rather than talented) member of the cello section of the Westmorland Orchestra.
“ I can't tell you enough how grateful I am for your help and guidance. Your understanding of my feelings, fears and the trauma I have endured is truly a credit to you, Alison, and not just a family lawyer doing her job. Thank you from the bottom of my heart - you are the best! ”
“ Alison was very professional and very personable and approachable. Not a stereotypical solicitor but that's a good thing - being able to relate to clients with empathy but offering sensible, realistic advice is a must and I felt Alison did this. ”
“ I am very grateful to Alison Moore for the excellent way in which she dealt with my divorce. The compassionate approach she used to steer the divorce through a difficult set of circumstances, made it slightly more bearable, along with the "tea and tissues" which were always appreciated! Alison played a significant role in liberating myself and the family from a horrible situation, for which i shall remain eternally grateful. Thank you ”
“ Thank you so much to everyone for a superb, professional and friendly service. Alison always made me feel I was in such safe hands, and was fantastic throughout. Her secretary Jayne was fantastic - always so very kind and reassuring. I have already recommended THW to several people and will continue to do so. ”
“ I received excellent service from THW. The advice and information regarding my case was relevant, helpful and clear. Alison gave me the help and confidence to navigate through some difficult family issues. ”
