Christopher Taylor

Director and Head of Private Family and Disputes

Chris is originally from Harrogate, North Yorkshire but joined Hains & Lewis in 1997 as a trainee solicitor after reading business studies and then law (with distinction) at DeMontfort University, Leicester.

Chris is the head of the Family Law Department and a long-standing member of the Law Society Family Law Advanced Accreditation Scheme.

He practices in all areas of Family Law and specialises in complex divorce and matrimonial finance cases as well as financial disputes relating to unmarried couples.  His deserved reputation as the go-to divorce lawyer in West Wales arises from his exceptionally high success rate coupled with his ability to quickly and effectively analyse complex issues and offer practical, workable solutions. 

Chris is married with a young son and lives in Haverfordwest. When not spending time with his family Chris likes to visit the gym and keeps fit by competing in sporting events in support of local charities. To relax he fly fishes and is a member of the Pembrokeshire Anglers Association.

In the rare event of a client being dissatisfied with our service Chris is the person who will deal with any issues.
