About Us

Hazel is the Head of the Family Law and Private Client work and has over 15 years of experience in private client children, divorce, matrimonial finances, cohabitation disputes and finances, as well as specialising in Wills and Probate, Lasting Powers of Attorney and Contested Probate.

HSH Solicitors are also members of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme (CQS) and have been accredited with the scheme since 2013. The scheme provides a recognised quality standard for residential conveyancing practices. Membership establishes a level of credibility for firms with stakeholders such as regulators, lenders and insurers, and residential homebuyers and sellers.


Independent Solicitors

We pride ourselves on remaining independent so that we can offer impartial advice on your matter. As part of the firm’s policy of remaining independent, unlike many other solicitor practices, we refuse to enter into any referral agreements including, with Estate Agents, Mortgage Brokers or any comparison sites, where we would be required to pay a referral fee for your work or receive a payment in return. This is a promise we have made to ourselves as well as our clients; it is something we will continue to live by in the future.
