Jason Lazard
Consultant Family Law Solicitor

I am a specialist family law solicitor with over 20 years’ experience in helping address and resolve the issues that arise from relationship breakdown. I strive to provide a supportive and professional service for my clients in what can often be very challenging times.

My practice frequently focuses on addressing the complex financial issues that arise in divorce, separation and cohabitation, attending to the arrangements in respect of children, and disputes relating to property owned by unmarried parties.

I advise regularly in relation to all financial aspects; assets from the family home, pension provision and more conventional savings, through to a wealth of more specialist financial arrangements and issues including family businesses, trusts, investment property, overseas assets and third-party interests.

Areas I specialise in are:

  • Divorce and separation
  • Cohabitation
  • Civil Partnerships
  • Financial arrangements and settlements
  • Child arrangements
  • Pre and post-nuptial agreements
  • Cohabitation agreements
  • Unmarried property ownership disputes

I am friendly, approachable and collaborative and always keen to promote and assist early resolution of issues through negotiation and agreement wherever possible, or via court proceedings if required.

I have a trusted network of fellow professionals including mediators, accountants and barristers that I work with as required in order to achieve the best outcome for my clients.

I am a member of Resolution (formerly the Solicitors Family Law Association) and subscribe to Resolution’s Code of Practice by seeking to promote a constructive and sensible approach that considers the needs of the whole family.  I am also a Resolution trained Collaborative Family Lawyer.

Whenever I can I enjoy being in the great outdoors, often on two wheels or walking our badly behaved puppy.
