divorce solicitor Emma Hamilton ColeColes Miller Partner Emma Hamilton Cole has just become the first solicitor at the firm to gain Help and Support for Separated Families (HSSF) accreditation.

HSSF solicitors specialise in resolving conflict among couples that are separating.

This can involve mediation, collaborative law or other means of dispute resolution that help to avoid the stress and expense of going to court - as well as keeping control of the discussion firmly within the family.

The aim is make separation and divorce less acrimonious and to minimise the impact on the children, whose interests always come first.

“HSSF accreditation is a quality mark that separating couples can trust when they are looking for legal advice to help them resolve their difficulties,” said Emma, who leads Coles Miller’s family law team in Bournemouth, Poole, Broadstone, Charminster and Wimborne.

HSSF accreditation can be issued by family law association Resolution to members with a specific level of expertise in dispute resolution. It is also available to other professionals working in the field. They can apply for accreditation directly.
