Family and Divorce Lawyer, Claire Holland

CLAIRE HOLLAND  – Director and Founder of Holland Family Law

I am Claire Holland, a professional and accomplished Family and Divorce Lawyer based in Leicester. Since joining the legal profession in 1992, I have developed a passion for achieving the best outcome for you in cases involving family matters. You can expect a sensitive, supportive and straightforward service from me, helping you to take the right steps.

Trusted to manage matters of family law by a number of local Solicitors in Leicester over the years, I have established myself as one of the best family and divorce lawyers in the City. I have worked with Douglas Wemyss Solicitors (DWS Legal), Josiah Hincks Solicitors, Glynis Wright Solicitors and GS Solicitors, providing practical, easy to understand family legal advice.

In 2009, I qualified as a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives. After recognising that family law is my forte, I now dedicate my life to helping people resolve potentially complex cases, amicably.


I am personable and proactive, always aiming to maintain your best interests and provide the best family legal help possible. I am a member of Resolution, an organisation of specialist Family Lawyers committed to a constructive approach to the practice of Family Law.

As a result of my commitment to Resolution over the years, most of my cases achieve settlement by constructive negotiations, cutting costs for everyone involved. If you are confused by legal jargon or you are unsure of your rights, I’m here to support you and bring clarity to your case.


Coping with a combination of serious concerns about your future and the emotional side of a relationship breakdown is stressful. I work with you to lighten the load, putting you at ease and giving you opportunity to discuss your fears and say what is on your mind. This helps me to give you the right advice to achieve a settlement you are satisfied with.

I am a trusted, dedicated family and divorce lawyer ready to represent you.

GERALDINE WATSON – Family Law Solicitor

I qualified as a solicitor in 2008, when I decided to join the legal profession later in life.  I believe my life experiences enable me to empathise and understand how to help people deal with difficult issues when separating.

I have had the pleasure of working at various Law Firms, such as Nelsons Solicitors and Lawson West Solicitors.  During this time, I have developed my experience in dealing with all areas of Family Law, including Divorce, Finances, Separation and applications for Child Arrangement Orders



I have dealt with many complex financial matters, including appeals and cases where there have been hidden assets.

I also have a lot of experience in dealing with cases involving negotiating arrangements for parents to spend time with their children, when the other parent attempts to alienate them from their children’s lives.

I understand the difficulties people face when separating and I strive to achieve a fair outcome, which will allow people to move on with their lives.


My strengths lie in my positive attitude, personal and proactive approach and organisational skills.

I am a member of Resolution and I am committed to the practice of dealing with matters in a non-confrontational way and aim to achieve a much better outcome for my clients.

I joined Holland Family Law in July 2019 and continue to be excited by this opportunity.  Claire Holland has an excellent reputation as a lawyer and I am thrilled to be part of the team.

I am an experienced and devoted family law Solicitor, ready to represent you.

AMY WALTON – Trainee Legal Secretary

I joined Holland Family Law in August 2019 and I have enjoyed learning new skills, while gaining a better understanding of Family Law.  I decided to join the team because of the firm’s excellent reputation.

I enjoy assisting Claire and Geraldine in various tasks and greeting clients either on the telephone or in person.  I have had the pleasure of observing the satisfaction of many clients because of the work undertaken on their behalf.

Outside of work, I enjoy baking cakes and spending time with my dog Max, my two cats Jake and Midnight, and friends and family.
