Solicitor – Family
Rob Price is a Solicitor in the Family Law Department, and he has considerable experience dealing with all aspect of private family law. Educating himself whilst in the first rung of the civil service, he decided to change track and enrolled at Bournemouth University to study Business Law. With a positive outlook on life and a desire to learn, Rob qualified as a lawyer back in 1998, currently having over 20 years of experience in the field.
He started practising criminal law, mental health law and family law, concentrating predominantly on children cases. He was a member of the Law Society Mental Health Panel for three years, regularly helping acutely unwell patients at St Ann’s Hospital, Poole. For 14 years, Rob was an accredited specialist in family law with Resolution– the national association of family lawyers who are committed to constructively resolving family disputes.
Rob has also been involved in commerce, having tried his own design business, dabbled in his artwork and latterly, worked closely as a solicitor with successful Company Directors in the construction industry in Southampton for ten years, alongside managing his small legal practice. Therefore, his knowledge and application of commercial realities have grown and helped him further develop his practice in family law here with us, where life’s realities are very similar.
Rob has spent his career to date representing hundreds of people in Mental Health Tribunals, the Magistrate Courts and County Courts, but has always sought to resolve any of his clients’ difficulties first before getting to those courts, to ensure that they are as prepared as possible. Similarly, he always seeks to help his clients avoid contentious outcomes as far as possible while remaining committed to their interests as the primary concern.
Highly motivated, professional, calm, and approachable, Rob can take responsibility for a client’s matter and make elusive processes understandable, with clear and concise advice, always acting with his clients’ best interests in mind. However, where is necessary, Rob, with a strong personality, robust and direct, aims to negotiate the best settlement for his clients, always being aware of the emotional and financial costs of the proceedings.
Away from the office, Rob enjoys cooking, particularly if it involves a wok, although a restaurant is always preferred. He also likes to read, keep fit and play and watch as much tennis as possible.
Whilst Rob is based at our Christchurch office, he will also travel to one of our branch offices to see clients. If you wish to arrange an appointment, please telephone 01202 482202 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
