Cathedral Chambers is the first specialist family law set in Wales and was founded on the 2nd April 2012.
We are based in both Cardiff and Newport and are pleased to accept instructions from solicitors and public access clients in Wales and England. We aim to provide a wide-ranging and professional approach to all aspects of family law.
Cathedral Chambers believe that a specialist set can provide a uniquely tailored approach which will benefit all clients, including Local Authorities, parents, alternative family members, children, Guardians, professional and lay clients.
Cathedral Chambers offers direct access services and mediation services.
Members of Chambers are from all levels of call and have experience of appearing in all Courts, ranging from the Family Proceedings Court to the Court of Appeal.
Members of Cathedral Chambers are regularly involved in representing clients in public and private law proceedings, financial remedies, TOLATA applications and claims under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependents) Act 1975
We are delighted to be clerked by Miss Nicola Morgan who has 18 years of family clerking experience. Many professional clients will know Miss Morgan as a former family clerk to Temple Chambers.
Members of Cathedral Chambers relish the prospect of providing a new and excellent service to all clients, facing the challenges and changes to family law by the delivery of expert advocacy and focused legal advice.

09-July-2013 - Immigration
Cathedral Chambers have noticed whilst conducting our wide ranging caseload that more and more cases, both within the public and private law spectra, now require expertise in aspects of immigration law which on occasion, requires external advice. In our aim to offer an all encompassing service, we have decided to extend the ambit of our family law expertise by plugging that gap. To that end, we now offer representation in immigration cases. This will have the effect of enabling our practitioners to advise on all areas of family law as these cases become more and more prevalent.
