About Crockett & Co. Solicitors

Crockett & Co Solicitors was formed in 1991 by Helen Crockett who was at the time the only female Sole Practitioner/Solicitor in Leeds. Helen is a member of the Children Panel and also the Family Law Advanced Panel. The practice was based in Park Square in the centre of Leeds until 1993 when it moved to its present location in Harehills, being at the heart of the community it serves to help. 

We help those most vulnerable and in need of legal assistance due to serious injury, domestic abuse, child abduction and whole host of other family related matters.

The practice includes our Principal Solicitor, Helen Crockett, Assistant Solicitors Amie Mayes, Karen Griffin, Sophie Bentham, Amy Martin and a number of associate colleagues. 

The firms primary focus is childcare law, including care proceedings where children are removed from their parents due to neglect, injury, physical abuse, sexual abuse, or beyond parental control, plus non-molestation injunctions, private law children proceedings and divorce. We also deal with wills and probate.

We are able to take on urgent legal work and represent you in a court hearing, often the same day. We believe passionately that everybody, whatever their circumstances or background, has the right to be represented to keep them safe from harm and injury.

The firm accepts instructions from both publicly funded and private paying clients. Please speak to a member of our team to discuss potential costs and packages available.

The practice has formed close ties with Womens Aid and Gipsil, has connections with many local primary schools and operates a drop in centre for the local community at the office on a daily basis.
