Cases & Publications


'Acland represented me at a dispute resolution hearing, following a disappointing CAFCASS section 7 report. His advice was so helpful in balancing my son's wishes with the report recommendations - which weren't aligned. In the face of mud-slinging and false accusations by the other side, Acland kept a strong dignified approach with my son at the heart of everything he put forward. His attendance notes afterwards were extremely clear and helpful - I was understood completely, I was given a clear understanding of the reasons for the advice given and they were invaluable in the face of a factually incorrect court order from the other side. I am so grateful for Acland's involvement in the case and would absolutely recommend him to others.' “Mr Acland Bryant represented me on my final hearing in a family court. I would like to say he was very professional on the day, his polite manner and endless patience resulted in an outcome acceptable to all. He understood my concerns and projected them effectively which I’m grateful for. He did a brilliant job and I would highly recommend him. I would definitely use him again if needed in the future. Thank you!" “Acland came across as far more experienced than his call would suggest. His submissions were intelligent, articulate and persuasive…. He is definitely one to watch”
