About us

Fairfield Family Law was established by Lesley Fairfield in February 2021.  We are a niche firm in West Lothian practising in family law and guardianships.  By concentrating solely on one area of law we pride ourselves in having the necessary expertise and knowledge to provide sound legal and practical advice.

Our considerable experience in advising and representing a wide variety of clients in all areas of family law, has allowed us to fully appreciate that families come in all shapes and sizes with varying dynamics. We will always deal with your case in a professional and empathetic manner and recognise that no two family situations are the same. We represent husbands or wives, cohabitees, those in civil partnerships, same sex marriages or relationships, mums, dads, grandparents, kinship carers, children and wider family members. 

Our fee rates for private clients are competitive and we can discuss your eligibility for Legal Aid. Please contact us to arrange an appointment. 

If you have a query in relation to any other area of law we can usually point you in the right direction in terms of securing a solicitor so please ask.
