Gail Cook

Family Law

“Friendly, down to earth, personal legal advice that you can count on. I’m a Chartered Legal Executive with over 40 years of experience in all areas of family law, and I offer legal advice in a plain, jargon-free manner.”

About

Gail is a Chartered Legal Executive with 40 years experience in all areas of family law. She likes to think she doesn’t look old enough – Some may disagree! Gail has worked for various solicitors’ firms, from small family practices to large corporate firms, and has dealt with a wide range of legal cases.

Practical, down-to-earth advice

I pride myself on the practical, down-to-earth way that I look after my clients, and I frequently receive compliments from clients due to my straight-forward way of dealing with their problems, which are of a very personal and often emotional nature. I offer legal advice in a friendly and comforting manner, putting clients at their ease when they have been nervous to make an initial approach.

I’m also a member of Resolution, which is a group of family lawyers whose protocol is to deal with family cases in a non-confrontational manner, which is essential when feelings are already running high between separating couples.

Consultancy that's financially backed

I’m currently a consultant with Richard Nelson LLP who deal with all my supervision, compliance, insurance and billing. This gives all of my clients the security of dealing financially with a large firm whilst also receiving my personal attention to their cases.

"Gail has worked on my case for almost five years. Given that we have worked together for so long would indicate that my case is far from standard. However, despite the complexity, Gail has been steadfast in her loyalty and commitment. When you work with Gail, you need to accept that she will tell you how it is. This can be sometimes hard but in doing so, Gail will lay out your options and advise you accordingly. Putting it simply, I couldn't have got through this period of my life without Gail's guidance. She works hard on your behalf and when you enter court, you can be rest assured she will do all she can to defend your position. For anyone who is experiencing domestic abuse - I would highly recommend Gail. She remains professional at all times but is also incredibly caring and compassionate."

"From my own experience, you have been there to help with anything I did not understand; you made it so easy by seeing me through it all by phone or email. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have not had any face-to-face contact, but you made me feel reassured that I was in good hands by keeping me up to date with everything."

"Gail always explained things very clearly and calmly, leaving me confident that there would be 'a light at the end of the tunnel'. I always felt assured by Gail both in my meetings with her and the correspondence sent to me. I would highly recommend Gail!"

"Gail was always very professional, an excellent communicator, extremely knowledgeable about the law and was always available for advice and support. I would thoroughly recommend her!"

- Mr T.W.
"Throughout the process, Gail's expertise, calmness and experience were invaluable. Without her support, professionalism and knowledge I do not believe matters would have drawn to the successful conclusion that they did and I would now be in a very different situation. I cannot recommend Gail highly enough”

- Mr A.M.
“I cannot praise Gail Cook enough for all her hard work. She has remained professional, patient and efficient in her dealings with my case. I would recommend her to anyone who requires family law advice. I have a lot to thank her for and she has made a real difference to my life.”

- Ms J.C.
