A market source describes her as a “very experienced and highly skilled solicitor with excellent attention to detail and honed client skills.”

We engaged Lindsay’s services some eleven months into a pension sharing dispute. Lindsay had come recommended by a friend, and after a successful resolution of our case, we cannot recommend her highly enough.

She is very approachable and easy to talk to – but at the same time it is clear your case is of the utmost importance to her. She is quick to respond to queries and is rigorous in checking facts and figures. Lindsay grasped the complexities of our case straight away and worked extremely hard to completely change the outcome of our case.

Eleven months previously we had ceased using our original solicitor due to mistakes he’d made and our resultant loss of trust in him. Lindsay spotted things that he had not done . We needed to have a barrister for the FDR who was very efficient and directed the offers with Lindsay’s assistance to a conclusion we were very satisfied with.

Lindsay has restored our faith in solicitors and we would have no hesitation in recommending her to others. She is great value for money and we only wish we had engaged her at the start.


I was four and a half years into divorce proceedings; having engaged three different legal firms throughout that time – none of which had been successful in reaching a financial settlement. My legal costs were off the scale and I was in a desperate state.  I was then introduced to Lindsay Yateman and everything changed for the better!

Lindsay has the most down to earth, sensible, logical approach to the circumstances she is presented with by her Client.   Lindsay listens, she acts with a practical sense of understanding that each case is as individual and unique as the person she is representing; striving to diffuse tensions and calmly work out a conclusion as quickly and effectively as possible.

Without her personal expertise at this stage, I don’t believe it would have been possible to reach a settlement without having to go through further trauma and cost of an FDR Hearing. Once Lindsay took the reigns, within eight months financial settlement was reached.

Due to the Covid-19 Virus; the Court Hearing took place by telephone conference call. Our Court Order was granted by the Judge on that day.  Immense relief this is finally over and my sincere thanks to Lindsay for making it possible.
