  • I felt the need to write to you and your wonderful team of people for your great help you gave me when dealing with my case. From my very first visit to Ridley & Hall when I saw Johanna Allen I felt at ease and knew that I would get the support I needed. The sympathetic approach to me by your team helped me greatly to cope with what was a very difficult time in my life and as time went on I began to feel confident again thanks to your re-assurance and help. Many thanks Meena and Johanna and your secretaries. I will be forever grateful to you all.

  • I want to thank you for your wonderful professional and emotional support on the day, which was as you say was extremely stressful for me. I do pray that the law changes so that other ladies do not have to have the same experience. It must have been difficult for you picking up a case that you had not had involvement in from the beginning, but I was so pleased I had you there with me!

Johanna Allen

Legal Executive – Family & Matrimonial

Johanna is an experienced Chartered Family Lawyer and Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives and specialises in family law.

Johanna has been with Ridley & Hall since 1994 and has extensive experience in all family matters including divorce and the financial issues connected to relationship breakdowns, Children Act matters and non-molestation (injunctions connected to domestic violence) orders.

The rights of grandparents (to be more precise the rights of the grandchildren) is an issue that Johanna is passionate about.  One of the most important relationships a child has is that with his or her grandparents. The love and wealth of information and family history that can be given by a grandparent to a child is priceless and this special relationship can often be severed or prevented through no fault of either the grandparent or child.

Often grandparents and grandchildren find themselves separated from each other, perhaps following the breakdown of the children’s parents’ relationship or if the grandparents’ relationship with their own child has broken down and a family divide occurs.

Please contact Johanna if you require any advice regarding contact to a grandchild or grandchildren.

Johanna is a member of Resolution, the national organisation of family lawyers committed to non-confrontational divorce, separation and other family problems.

Johanna appreciates that relationship breakdowns and family issues,  particularly where children are involved, are very emotional and stressful and believes that a sensitive and sympathetic approach is very important.

Johanna is married with two young children.

Please contact Johanna for advice on any of the above issues.
