Pinniger Finch & Co

Our Services

We advise in various areas of law including:

PROPERTY LAW

We offer a personal one to one property service. Our aim is to provide an efficient, friendly and professional service that takes the stress out of your property transaction. We handle both residential and commercial transactions.  In addition, we can advise on planning, boundary and ownership issues.

FAMILY LAW

We can advise you on all aspects of your situation irrespective of whether you are married, living with your partner, or contemplating separation or divorce. Protecting your children’s interests is very important. This may involve deciding how to maintain contact with both parents, and arranging for the children’s financial stability. We try to achieve solutions through negotiation but, if necessary, we will apply to the court for orders such as a Residence Order or Contact Order. The firm can also advise on public care proceedings involving children. And now that Legal Aid has largely disappeared we offer fixed price advice and representation so you know where you are. Please call us to discuss.

CIVIL LITIGATION

We can attempt a negotiated resolution to your dispute, but if that is not possible, then we will prepare and issue court action and take your case through to trial. If you are involved in a dispute with another individual or company we can advise you on your chances of success and the possible value of your claim. We can negotiate on your behalf and if necessary commence or defend proceedings. We can act for you in various disputes including:

  • contractual disputes
  • claims under the Protection from Harassment Act 1997
  • consumer disputes
  • professional negligence claims
  • accident claims
  • rights of way disputes
  • compromise agreements

DEBT COLLECTION

Before embarking on legal action, we investigate the financial status of the debtor. There is no point in throwing good money after bad and so we investigate each case realistically and apply our expertise to recover your money quickly and economically. 

WILLS, ESTATES & PROBATE

Without a Will, the law determines how your estate will be distributed, so your family, friends and favourite charities may not receive what they need or expect. We can help you to make the correct provisions and ensure that your wishes are carried out. 

LANDLORD & TENANT

We can assist with various matter including:

  • bringing or defending possession actions
  • drafting tenancy agreements
