About Us

We are a small firm of solicitors specialising in Family Law and Wills & Probate. We put our client’s needs first and we have developed our commitments to you.

We have solicitors based in York, Selby, Worksop, Cleckheaton and Barnsley, but we work with clients across the UK.

Our commitments to you

You're in safe hands

We understand that you may be going through a difficult time. We’ll give you one point of contact, an experienced lawyer that you can trust and build a relationship with.

At Rucklidges we keep you informed

We know it can be stressful waiting for information. We won’t keep you waiting unnecessarily, we will always let you know about progress on your case as soon as we do.

Helping you Understand the Legal Process

Legal matters can be complex, especially if it's the first time you've had to deal with them. We'll explain everything to you in simple terms and guide you through the process so that you know what's happening.

You're our priority

We don't overload our lawyers with too many clients, we keep our workload manageable so that we make sure we are available to you if you need us. If we are busy when you call, we'll always get back to you as soon as we can.
