Partner and head of team
I have been with GA Solicitors since 1992. I first started practicing family law in 1989 and became a partner of GA in 2000 and head of the family department in 2014. I am accredited by Resolution in advanced financial provision, cohabitation and children law
My practice is exclusively family law. I undertake a broad range of work within this field, totally committed to my clients, with an emphasis on divorce/civil partnership dissolution, matrimonial finance, to include complex business structures, property portfolios, pension sharing/offsetting and pre and post nuptial agreements. I am an experienced court advocate.
I am also a trained mediator and have practiced in this area significantly in the past, having been a recognised mediator by the Legal Services Commission. These skills are used regularly to negotiate a settlement rather than litigate through the court process.
I have discussed key family law issues on local radio and given presentations to local businesses.
I am proud to be ranked both in The Legal 500 and in Chambers UK as a leader in my field. Chambers praises my ’empathy and understanding’ adding that I am ‘very easy to trust and open up to’. I consistently achieve excellent results for clients – demonstrated by my outstanding feedback.
I have maintained my standing as one of the top three best-rated family law solicitors in Plymouth for many years.
If you want a specialist family lawyer who will fight your corner at every step, then get in touch with me today to see how I can help.
- Michelle Grove was friendly, listened and was supportive. I would recommend Michelle to anyone who needs a solicitor. Michelle was honest about what I could expect from the divorce, she did not mislead me with high expectations as many of my friends have been. I have recommended Michelle to many people.
- A HUGE thank you!!! You were amazing, as always, in Court today. M is over the moon (she punched the air and said "Yes!")
- Thank you for helping me through a difficult and stressful period.....through your guidance we achieved a much better outcome than I could have expected. My thanks is not only for your skilful handling of my case but for your understanding and support. All my communication was handled very quickly and meetings were arranged without delay. Finding the right solicitor is not easy, so being able to quickly build up the trust to know you have found not only an excellent solicitor but someone with integrity is so important.
- I was impressed from the start. When I met with you at the initial consultation, you very quickly put me at ease. You told me not to worry about the divorce, as you were in my “corner” (or something similar – I forget exactly which expression you used, but I remember the sentiment). You have been very professional in all of your dealings. More so, you have also shown much kindness in being very generous with your time and expertise. Your email replies were always reassuring, and they have been much appreciated. Thank you.
