Betteridges was set up in 1994, when it was known as Mark Betteridge and Co. In 2000, Mark was joined by his wife, Lindsey Betteridge, and together they built up the company now known as Betteridges Solictors.
Mark and Lindsey have always adopted a holistic and progressive approach to family law, recognising their clients’ emotional needs as well as their legal requirements.
With a shared commitment to exceeding expectations and achieving the best possible results for their clients, they now manage a team of leading family law professionals dedicated to offering a bespoke, personable and cost-effective service.
Over 50% of our business comes directly from referrals. Our client-focused, straight-talking approach coupled with years of expertise, is renowned for achieving successful outcomes. Find out more by reading our client testimonials.
It’s worth adding that we’re not just specialists in our field of law; some of us are parents and some of us have been personally affected by divorce or bereavement in the family, so we understand the difficulties you may be going through. Our talented staff are dedicated to pursuing every available option for our clients, to ensure we obtain the best results.
The initial consultation is complimentary and thereafter your lawyer will talk you through the likely cost of your case. We aim to be as transparent as possible on fees, keeping you in the loop at all times. Don’t be put off by seemingly high hourly charging rates; at Betteridges we like to give you options. You can choose the seniority of lawyer best suited to your case and budget. We can offer payment plans and in some circumstances arrange loans, as well as fixed fees for certain types of work.
Whilst we don’t claim to be the least expensive, we do guarantee that the quality of advice and support you receive from our experts is value for money. We urge you not to risk your or your family’s future by cutting corners on legal advice. If you are worried about the potential costs of your case, please do talk to us and we can advise you on all our available funding options.
“Mark Betteridge and his team handed my complex divorce and financial dispute with the upmost skill and dedication. Almost every aspect of a divorce featured, including an injunction to stop harassment, injunctions to freeze assets, disputed child support and properties and pensions (with values in the millions). At no time during the process did I believe that I was not being well represented or well informed. I have now moved on with my life and I have Mark and his team to thank.”
