Services for military personnel

We offer a complete range of services for individuals and businesses that are delivered with the kind of dedication and excellence you would expect from one of the South's premier law firms.  We have in-depth knowledge and experience in helping military personnel and their families.

Being a serving member in Her Majesty’s Armed Forces can result in a number of issues that are simply not such a problem for civilians.

For example, regular operational tours and detachments, whether in the UK or abroad, can cause a number of issues including:

  • Putting a strain on a relationship;
  • If separated or divorced and you have children, there could be difficulties with contact with your children;
  • Legally empowering someone to deal with your financial and other affairs while you are away.

Then there are matters regarding pensions, Wills and unfortunate events such as personal injuries.

We have a team of lawyers who have specific experience of helping military personnel and their families.  We understand the law, and just as important, we understand the issues that you have as a serving member of the Armed Forces.

One of your first concerns may be the logistical problem of selecting legal advice. Some of our team's offer a free initial 30 minute no obligation consultation at a time convenient to you.  This can be at either our Southampton or Salisbury office or over the telephone, whatever is convenient for you.  Before any work is undertaken we will outline what we propose to do on your behalf and provide you with written confirmation of our estimated total fees. In all matters we are transparent about our fees.

We frequently represent military personnel posted abroad, Instructions and advice can be taken and given by telephone or email.  Documents can be scanned electronically to reduce postal times.

Issues we can help with include:

  • Families & Relationships
  • Dispute Resolution
  • Injuries & Accidents
  • Clinical Negligence
  • Wills & Inheritance Planning


Military discounts are available in some areas of our legal services for serving and ex military personnel and their spouses, please contact us for further information via email or call 01722 412512.
