About us

Gowen & Stevens is a well established firm having a 100 year history. The firm is well organised and holds the Lexcel quality mark which is the accredited practice management standard approved by the Law Society.

Our approach is to provide clear and thorough legal advice in a sympathetic manner and to progress matters without delay.

Roy Goodship is the senior solicitor dealing with family law. He is a member of the SRA Family Law Accreditation Scheme. He has been practicing in family law for over 20 years. His priorities are to be accessible to clients and to explain matters every step of the way. We are aware that clients are anxious about the prospect of high legal costs and the acrimony which may arise in court proceedings. We take every step to ensure that accurate costs information is given and funding arrangements are in place. We aim to settle issues wherever possible and in court proceedings we press firmly for clients' entitlement at the same time seeking to minimize the experience of confrontation.

Aspects of family law covered include:

  • Divorce
  • Separation
  • Matrimonial finance
  • Cohabitee disputes
  • Issues concerning children
  • Domestic violence

We have other departments which can help deal with related issues such as conveyancing or wills.

Mr Goodship may be contacted by telephone on 020 8661 8611 or by email on
