Members

Here for you, wherever you are

Forces Law is a network of private firms of solicitors, who’ve come together to offer legal advice and support to all members of the Armed Forces – Regular and Reserve, serving and retired – and their families. Although we’re all civilians now, some of our solicitors are ex-Service; and we all have specialist knowledge and expertise in military as well as civilian law.

Call our central helpline on 0845 601 1260 or email enquiries@forceslaw.com and we’ll put you in touch with a solicitor who can provide the expert advice you need.

We’re not part of or paid for by the MoD or any of the three Services: out advice is completely impartial and independent. And while our members are based in the UK, you can call on us from anywhere in the world if you’re on deployment or active service.

Please click on the links for details of individual Forces Law members, their areas of expertise and how to get in touch with them directly.

What our clients say

Thank you for everything you have done!! You have been amazing from start to finish, I just wish I had come to you in the first place as my previous solicitor didn’t even know there were special rules for Armed Forces wives. Biscoes Solicitors.

(Bolt Burdon Kemp.) You have always been professional, meticulous, understanding, adaptable and really gone up and above in all aspect of our case and customer care. Not once during your representation have we had to worry or question your ability, directions, guidance or choice of experts or legal representation, which alleviates some of the worry and burden that litigation brings.

Sgt RLC, Military claims client.

(Wace Morgan Solicitors LLP) Very compassionate, caring and professional service. Very hard to improve on 100%. Good standard of service.

Do not hesitate to use Wolferstans as your solicitors. I have used them now on two occasions and they are quite simply the very best there is. Helpful, friendly, efficient but above all honest with you from start to finish. My most recent case was a triumph and that was down to their dedication and professional handling of the case. In short they saved me my future and I will be eternally grateful.

Mr Hall, Plymouth.
