Welcome to Cathedral Chambers

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.
