Inspiring Reassuring and Exemplary

I have a critical eye with an attention to detail. I have been very impressed by BPS Family Law across the board. This begins from the cleanliness of the well situated premises, the polite friendly welcome and the smartness of all concerned.

This is a particularly difficult time for me. The availability even out of the already long hours, reassurance, understanding, explanations, guidance and billing flexibility have been outstanding; whilst still not departing from reality. I cannot imagine a better service. Harry Lipson introduced me to Caroline Swain. Caroline is an exceptional individual with an excellent grasp of her subject but not afraid to ask for technical help from other professionals if something is outside of her field.  That said, it would need to be non-legal!

She is an assiduous player and clearly experienced and confident in the advice she gives and the explanations she provides. Her technical knowledge and execution are inspiring, reassuring and exemplary. Her commercial awareness reflects her years of experience!

An excellent boutique divorce and family law practice, with a compact but highly experienced team


Legal 500 - 2021

Jennifer Roulston wiped the floor with my ex and got me my house.  I just want to thank her for everything that she did for me and my girls.  I remember walking into her office with absolutely no hope in my heart after going to a different firm and I was practically laughed out of their office.  Jennifer Roulston changed everything for me and I will never forget how amazing she is, so thank you from the bottom of my heart.  THANK YOU


Jennifer changed my whole life.  I will never forget her and how strong and kind she was when I needed her the most”


BPS Family Law practice is Unique

Confidence and Professionalism 

Caroline Swain oozes confidence and professionalism from the word go.  Up to date, sympathetic when needed but keeps you grounded to the reality of the process.  I very much doubt any other person could have achieved my outcome, it’s not all about the money, that is discreetly taken care of.   

I will continue to recommend Caroline to anyone who finds themselves in a similar situation.

Caroline is like a rottweiler

For me BPS helped me through the worst period of my life. Their approach was not only personable but also professional.
We won my case even when all the odds were against us it also helped that you were working with the guidance of two solicitors.  
Caroline is like a Rottweiler on heat and Harry offers his years of expertise.

I fully endorse BPS and would recommend them to anyone who needs more than a solicitor.

She has been a rock for me

It has been a long road, but we have finally got there!  Caroline Swain has been with me every step of the way. 
Her dedication, help, support, out of hours contact and professional advice is second to non.

From the moment I met Caroline, we hit it off, and throughout these two and a half years of ongoing court cases, we’ve actually been able to laugh through the dark times.  She has been a rock for me throughout my divorce.  I look forward to enjoying the light at the end of the tunnel together with Caroline once my last court case is over.

Client Testimonial

Professional, Compassionate 

DIVORCE is an extremely traumatic experience to go through.

When your world suddenly implodes and the security you had known is threatened by circumstances beyond your control the last thing you need when you are at your most vulnerable is to consult solicitors for advice and reassurance who during this consultation ask for credit card and bank balance details. You are looking for professional advice as normally you do not know which way to turn what you need is someone to reassure you and advise what is the best course of action. I was at my most vulnerable when I stepped into the office of Caroline Swain. Her calm professional approach instantly put me at ease.

We had a thorough consultation and never at any time was I asked for money or bank /credit card details. By the time I left the office I was more optimistic about my dreadful situation and felt I was in safe hands. That day was a major turning point for me during a very painful time. I have extremely high regard for Caroline and her colleagues. I was definitely given access to the best professionals including a first class barrister.

I was never pressurised during the procedure, unlike many others I have spoken to who have been thrust into the same position. I look back and appreciate having instructed an extremely professional, compassionate solicitor whom I would highly recommend and I am delighted to have the opportunity to write this testimonial as a token of my appreciation.
