The Divorce Surgery is unique. We offer a brand new model, founded on the principle that with equal access to top quality, impartial legal advice couples will be empowered to resolve their differences quickly, fairly and with the least conflict.
Samantha Woodham and Harry Gates are both family law barristers at a leading set of chambers, 4 Paper Buildings. Between them they have over 25 years experience dealing with countless couples in dispute over their finances and their children. This gives Samantha and Harry a clear perspective on the drawbacks of adversarial litigation for families.
Whilst for some couples court intervention is the only solution, Samantha and Harry were determined to find a better way, which encouraged couples to resolve their disputes, with legal advice, together, at the earliest stage in a non-adversarial, confidential and dignified way.
We are dedicated to improving access to justice, and 1% of The Divorce Surgery's profits are donated to charitable causes with this aim.
