Nick is an experienced and approachable family lawyer with Woolley & Co, based in Great Yarmouth, Norfolk. He specialises in all areas of relationship breakdown and enjoys an excellent and trusted reputation with his clients, local courts and fellow professionals. He has particular experience in divorce for members of the armed forces and police, often involving complex pension arrangements.
Nick has been named as a Recommended Lawyer for Family Law in East Anglia in Legal 500, for the last 5 years. Our team in the region is noted for "outstanding service and timely, appropriate, knowledgeable and supportive advice".
“I’ve been practising law since 1987 and can help clients deal with a range of family law issues. It may be help with divorce and separation, property and financial matters, separation agreements and domestic violence, or children issues such as residence and contact. In recent years I’ve also dealt with an increasing number of divorces for British expats and now have clients all over the world including a number in the USA.
During what is invariably a difficult and confusing time in my clients’ lives, I aim to support and assist them with a friendly and understanding approach. I talk through often-complex issues in a straightforward manner whilst working resolutely to achieve the best possible result for them.
On the positive side I have also helped many couples (both married and unmarried), avoid future difficulties by assisting them with living together and prenuptial agreements.
I’m pleased too to be able to offer legal advice on matrimonial issues through the Citizens Advice Bureau on a voluntary basis. I was also appointed Trustee of Lowestoft Contact Centre which helps children to re-establish contact and spend time with both parents.
Away from work, I’m a keen sports fan always dreaming up new ways to injure myself while still finding time to enjoy more leisurely pursuits with my family."
Nick qualified as a Legal Executive in November 1996 and joined Woolley & Co in September 2009 from a firm in Ipswich.
