Meet The Team To Help You With Divorce and Family Matters

Our Founder - Andrew Isaacs

Andrew Isaacs qualified as a solicitor in Doncaster (1985) at what is now Taylor Bracewell.

He specialised from the outset in litigation, and now divorce law, having realised early on in his career that conveyancing was not why he became a lawyer! He left Doncaster to work in Poole and Bournemouth some twenty years ago and following his own divorce has now returned home.

He has four children. The eldest two boys graduated with honours from Warwick University and Oxford University and are now pursuing careers with BT and Argos. He has full experience of what marriage, children, separation and divorce are like from his own life!

What Amanda’s Clients Say:

“Amanda was fantastic. She listened carefully and not only understood my legal situation but also the implications on my life it was having. My options were explained with expensive legal rabbit holes pointed out and potentially better courses of actions suggested. I felt that Amanda cares about what is morally right and wrong. If you want someone to agree with what you’re saying and happily take your money, go elsewhere. If you want a no messing professional eager to fight your cause then Amanda and is more than fully recommended.”

From the moment I first spoke to Amanda of Andrew Isaacs I knew I had found a professional who would listen to me and understood my issues far better than the junior assigned to me by the firm I had just visited. I moved my business to Amanda and from this point on I have felt supported with good advice that was relevant to me and a person I could talk to on the phone when I needed to. Most of my legal issues have been resolved now, as amicably as has been possible, and I fully hope that with Amanda advising me my remaining issues will also resolve in a way that is best for everyone. I would heartily recommend Amanda.”
