Private judging service for family law.

Ormrods Solicitors & Advocates can help you avoid the protracted, expensive and often highly stressful process of going through the law courts with our private judging service.

Private judging, or early neutral evaluation (ENE), is typically used in cases about how finances are to be settled after a relationship breaks down.

It involves both parties in the separation working with an appointed professional to decide on the equitable division of matrimonial, financial assets out of the courtroom.

This process is a far quicker and more convenient way to settle matrimonial financial disputes. You do not have to wait months for your first court appearance or spend unnecessary time there awaiting your hearing on the appointed day.

Michael Penny is Ormrods’ in house solicitor advocate who has the authority to represent clients in any civil or criminal court up to and including the Supreme Court. His experience in dealing with matrimonial and civil partnership cases means that he can act as a private judge appointed by both parties in cases of divorce and their associated financial settlements.
