Harney Wells

Harney & Wells Join GoodLaw Solicitors LLP

Unrivalled Experience of Family Law and Mediation in Brighton

We are pleased to announce that from 4th November 2019 Harney & Wells Specialist Family Law Solicitors and their mediation practice will merge with GoodLaw Solicitors LLP. On that date Carol Harney and Sarah Mellish retire from full time practice.

Jane Wells and Alison Harbour have already moved to GoodLaw Solicitors LLP’s Hove office at 6 The Drive, Hove, BN3 3JA along with assistants, Nicola Osbourne, Lizzie Simmonds and Jeanette Wells. Harney & Wells’ office at Second Floor, Edge House, 42 Bond Street, Brighton, BN1 1RD is no longer in use.

Alison and Jane are both on the Law Society Children panel and are able to represent children and Guardians and Alison is a solicitor advocate.

Jane is also a fully accredited family mediator and is able to mediate on all issues.

Harney & Wells’ Legal Aid contract for mediation has been passed to GoodLaw Solicitors LLP and Jane will therefore be able to offer Legal Aid mediation for those clients who are eligible.

Please contact GoodLaw Solicitors LLP with any queries on 01273 956270.

Until 4th November 2019, Jane and Alison remain part of Harney & Wells. Please bear with us during this transition period as systems are being activated, and there may be some teething issues.

From 4th November 2019, Carol and Sarah will be working from Citibase Burgess Hill on a part time basis dealing with the closure and archiving of Legal Aid files relating to the family contract Harney & Wells hold with the Legal Aid Agency. The telephone number for Citibase Burgess Hill is 01444 240100. The address is The Forum, 277 London Road, Burgess Hill, RH15 9QU.

From 1st November 2019, Harney & Wells will no longer have a DX box and address. Please use GoodLaw Solicitors LLP’s DX address (DX 59621 Hove) from that time.

All closed/archived files of Harney & Wells will be held through GoodLaw Solicitors LLP and therefore any enquiry in relation to an old file should be directed to GoodLaw Solicitors LLP.
