As a client, you can expect to receive a high-quality service, which greatly differs from the impersonal nature of large, traditional law firms. I offer a flexible, bespoke service to my clients, including out of hours and weekend appointments upon request. I am highly experienced in providing expert family law advice and supporting families through difficult times and will always endeavour to find pragmatic solutions to your legal issue, avoiding the need for costly and unnecessary litigation. 


A billing target is a specific sum of money that a solicitor is expected to bill each month by the firm for which they work. I believe that these targets have a negative impact on the work undertaken for clients. Unlike traditional law firms, I do not have any billing targets to meet. I will also never take on additional cases if doing so would negatively impact on the high level of service provided to my existing clients. The work I do is not simply about money. It is born out of a passion to help those who truly need my assistance.

Phenomenal, incredibly knowledgeable but also incredibly compassionate

I contacted Fotoulla for some legal advice regarding some complexities I was struggling with in relation to my divorce. She was phenomenal, incredibly knowledgeable but also incredibly compassionate and understanding. I felt like I was talking to an incredibly knowledgeable friend. I can’t rate her highly enough and I would strongly recommend her services. I have dealt with a few family solicitors over the last couple of years and she is the best.

She is clearly experienced and knowledgeable of her field, immediately identifying several legal options for me to consider regarding my circumstances. Fotoulla is credit to the legal profession and I would have no hesitation in recommending her.
