Frances Lindsay & Co Celebrates 20 Years in 2017!

January 18, 2017  |   Posted by :   |   Blog


Happy birthday to us! January 2017 marks a milestone of 20 years for Frances Lindsay & Co and we’re proud to have provided the Thames Valley with two whole decades of expert, personalised, effective family law services.

The firm was set up by family lawyer Frances Lindsay (clue’s in the name!) in 1997 with the aim of offering ‘a different kind of family law’ – our work is not just about paperwork, it’s about real people, and we have always been committed to providing a service that takes into account each client’s emotional and practical needs.

Our family law department includes senior partner Frances Lindsay, partner Sadie Glover, Martin Lambert, and their brilliant PAs Carol Cox and Dymphna Murphy. Both Frances and Sadie are members of Resolution and have a wealth of experience in helping couples through separation, offering mediation, arbitration, collaborative family law, and support with financial settlements, children’s issues and taking a case to court. Frances is also a collaborative lawyer, a member of the Collaborative Family Law Group, the Family Law Panel, the Institute of Arbitrators, and the only fully qualified Family Law Arbitrator in the Thames Valley. Our family lawyers take a down-to-earth, practical, and sensitive approach to each and every case, helping to take the weight off our clients’ shoulders during this potentially difficult time.

In our property and conveyancing department we have Piers Clifton, Hardeep Chana, and Karen Goggin with a combined experience of over 50 years. Our property solicitors are here to help you negotiate every aspect of property law – from buying your first home to investing in a buy-to-let to equity release. They’ll even give you a free online conveyancing quote to kick off your property search!

Piers and Frances also handle all aspects of wills and probate, including inheritance planning and arranging powers of attorney. And just as vital to the running of our firm is receptionist Sheila Hind, who is our clients’ first port of call and handles appointments and enquiries with friendly professionalism.

When you mention the word ‘solicitor’ most people instantly think of court hearings and divorce, but family law covers a huge range of important (and somewhat happier) life changes – from buying your first house to adding a grandchild to your will. Of course we handle divorce and separation, too. And if a relationship has run its course then we’re here to help couples to find the most cooperative solution to resolve their differences and avoid unnecessary animosity and protracted proceedings.
So, here’s to twenty more years of effective, down-to-earth family law in the Thames Valley! Whether you need a hand writing your will, want a free conveyancing quote, or are hoping mediation will help you to find a positive way through your breakup, we’re here to take the weight off your shoulders.
Frances Lindsay & Co have offices in Maidenhead and Beaconsfield, and offer expert legal services across Buckinghamshire and Berkshire, including Windsor, Gerrards Cross, Henley, and Marlow. Visit to find out more, or get in touch by emailing us at or calling 01628 634667.
