welcome to ridley & hall solicitors

Ridley & Hall are an award-winning firm of solicitors, based in Yorkshire, but with a national profile. We are passionate about making a difference to peoples’ lives by being innovative and forward thinking. We care about helping our clients to solve their legal problems. We avoid complicated legal jargon and are clear about the cost involved of any advice that we give.

Ridley & Hall have excellent Family & Matrimonial and Care Proceedings & Adoption teams which have been recommended by the legal publication the Legal 500. We specialise in divorce, financial relief, children, grandparents’ issues and kinship care.

We have nationally-recognised expertise in Community Care Law, supporting individuals and families in their challenges to local authorities. We also offer a welfare benefits advice service.

The excellence of the probate and trusts work carried out by our Wills & Probate team is also recognised by the Legal 500. The team works closely with our Contentious Probate specialists in resolving often complex and high value inheritance disputes.

We recognise that buying or selling a house can be a hugely stressful experience for many people. Our Residential and Commercial Property teams have a friendly and professional approach. We were one of the first firms in the country to gain accreditation in the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme, meeting the highest possible standards for the residential conveyancing process.

Our experienced Personal Injury lawyers deliver a friendly, personal service to accident victims and their families. We have a particular interest in accidents involving cyclists.
