BLS is delighted to welcome another new firm opening in Bristol, and this time we are delighted that it is our very own BLS Council member, Ashley Palminteri who has launched his new firm – The Family Law Practice. Ashley a divorce and family law specialist, as well as a mediator and collaborative lawyer explained that he was excited about his new venture.

He recognised that there was a need for a niche family law firm in Bristol and the south west which was able to offer the expertise and specialist skills that clients now deserved and expected.

The advantage of firms such as The Family Law Practice is that they can truly focus on delivering what the client needs and wants. You can also market yourself in an unambiguous way and without compromising, as is so often the case in multi-discipline practices.

His long term intention is for The Family Law Practice to establish itself as the leading marque in Bristol and the south west, in a similar way to those firms in London which did something similar some 5-10 years ago and are now considered to be some of the leading divorce lawyers in the country.
