“supportive, understanding and caring”
Resolving family disputes can be time consuming, stressful and expensive, but with the right approach it is often possible to achieve a positive outcome faster and at a lower cost without the need for Court action.
Wheeler’s dispute resolution team has been helping individuals and families find solutions to a wide range of personal disputes for many years. Whether you are going through a divorce, involved in a conflict over your children, locked into a disagreement over an inheritance, or need help resolving any other type of personal or family dispute, we have the expertise to find a practical, cost-effective solution.
We are highly experienced in Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR), including negotiation and mediation, as well as having a strong track record of success in Court proceedings. This means we can give you informed advice on which strategy is likely to achieve the best outcome in your circumstances, then offer effective representation whichever route you choose to pursue.

Our approach to dispute resolution
Our goal is to help you achieve the right outcome for you as quickly and cost-effectively as possible while keeping conflict to a minimum. We will always tailor our strategy to your priorities and keep you updated at all times so you feel in control at every stage of the dispute resolution process.
When you first get in touch, we will go through your case with you and be completely realistic about your chances of success. We will then work with you to put together a legal strategy that best matches your interests. We will also be totally up front about the likely costs involved and potential funding options so you can have complete confidence when deciding how to move forward.
In many cases, personal and family disputes can be resolved outside of a court through non-confrontational dispute methods, such as mediation and arbitration. Even where Court proceedings have been started, mediation and negotiation are built into the Court process, so a pre-trial settlement is often possible. This can save you a significant amount of time, money and stress while still delivering a fair result.
That said, we have extensive experience in Court proceedings and have excellent relationships with a number of highly experienced Barristers. This means that whatever route your case takes, we can ensure the best possible representation for your interests.
