Family Law Accreditations
Michele Wright is a member of the ‘Law Society Family Law Accreditation Scheme’.
She has therefore shown to the Law Society that she has and will maintain a high level of knowledge, skills, expertise and practice within the area of family law.
Michele is also a member of ‘Resolution’. Members encourage solutions that consider the needs of the whole family - and in particular the best interests of children.
Membership of Resolution involves resolving disputes in a non-confrontational way in the belief that family law disputes should be dealt with in a constructive way designed to preserve people’s dignity and to encourage agreements.

Conduct matters in a constructive and non-confrontational way
Avoid use of inflammatory language both written and spoken
Retain professional objectivity and respect for everyone involved
Take into account the long term consequences of actions and communications as well as the short term implications
Encourage clients to put the best interests of the children first
Emphasise to clients the importance of being open and honest in all dealings
Make clients aware of the benefits of behaving in a civilised way
Keep financial and children issues separate
Ensure that consideration is given to balancing the benefits of any steps against the likely costs – financial or emotional
Inform clients of the options e.g. counselling, family therapy, round table negotiations, mediation, collaborative law and court proceedings
