How can I help you? 

I am a Family Law solicitor with over 22 years' experience to draw on, to help you resolve the issues arising from your relationship. This can be in the context of a marriage, civil partnership or as cohabitees. I have a particular specialism in dealing with complex financial issues, involving businesses, farms or trust structures (both nationally and internationally), although I also deal with Pre-Nuptial Agreements, Co-habitation disputes and proceedings concerning children. 


Delivering what you really need 

I am a Partner and Head of the Family department in Chelmsford. My team and I are able to address all aspects of Family Law and to cater to every need to ensure we deliver the best results for you. Due to the range of legal services offered within Tees, we can draw on any necessary resources (whether connected to trusts/estate, employment, business or agriculture) to ensure the appropriate advice is given, to compliment our Family service. 

I am an accredited specialist in Family law by Resolution (the National Family Law group) and work within their Code of Practice to promote a pragmatic and amicable approach to the settlement of problems. 

The Family department also offers a range of alternative dispute resolution options to include mediation, collaborative law and arbitration. 


What else should you know? 

  • My team and I are highly ranked in the Legal 500 2019 for the Essex region. 
  • I am a committee member of the Avenue Contact Centre in Westcliff on Sea, Essex, which helps to facilitate contact for children in a safe environment. 
  • I enjoy public speaking (having undertaken numerous seminars for professionals in Essex) and have written several articles on the subject of Family Law. I also regularly provide updates on interesting issues connected to family law on LinkedIn.

I was impressed by your prompt responses, your clarity and the way you all kept me on track. I couldn’t have asked for more from the team and I honestly believe I wouldn’t be in such a good place now if it hadn’t have been for you all as a team. A very big thank you.



I recently used Joshua Coombe to guide me through a difficult divorce. He was extremely knowledgeable, approachable and responsive to my needs. His calm, professional and clear advice provided much needed reassurance throughout the process. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to others.
