Graham Fletcher McKenzie Friend

McKenzie friends support litigants in person in presenting their own case at court hearings, when they cannot afford legal representation. McKenzie friends accompany the person at the court hearing to assist with out of court negotiations and note taking and advice whilst in the court room, providing emotional support and quietly advising on points of procedure.

Prior to the court hearing McKenzie friends can assist people with application forms and the preparation and wording of their statements.

Graham works as a professional McKenzie friend, based near Reading with years of experience supporting parents in family courts across southern England. He successfully presented his own case in my divorce proceedings without a solicitor and his two children live with both parents equally.

He's passionate about sharing my knowledge of how family court really work with parents who decide to present their own case at court so they too can achieve positive outcomes. His child centred approach is a result of 15 years experience of working with children and families and I am a qualified mentor. He is very focussed on assisting people to remain as calm and focussed as they can on the day of court and his many client testimonials show that you can put your trust in him as the right McKenzie friend for your family law hearing
