2. Browell, Smith & Co - Solicitors
Domestic violence, separation, divorce, financial disagreements arising out of the breakdown of relationships and the ever present problem of attempting to resolve issues in relation to children when their parents separate are situations which the Department deals with on a daily basis.

Ailsa Gilhespy, Derek's Senior Assistant, is a member of the Law Society's Family Law Panel of Solicitors. Ailsa specialises in Family Law and brings a wealth of experience to bear in this field. Ailsa is particularly adept in dealing with situations where parties are unable to resolve issues relating to their children, and indeed their finances when relationships come to an end. Ailsa has established a very good relationship with the local Bar (Barristers) and is able to work in conjunction with them to secure the most appropriate settlement.
