Family Law Assistance provides clients with a guiding hand and comforting arm around the shoulder, co-founder Steven Ward says
Why would you want a business that enables you to choose where you work, when you work, generates a decent income and makes a positive impact on the lives of your clients?
That’s what we’re offering you. And you don’t even need a legal background to do so.
Cut from a different cloth
It’s not for everyone and maybe the thought of working in the legal industry isn’t for you. But we’re not solicitors and an episode of ‘Suits’ this ain’t.
We’re cut from a different cloth. You can dress like Rachel Zane if you like, but at Family Law Assistance we celebrate the individuality of our franchisees - and that doesn’t mean a slightly ‘out there’ tie colour either.
We’re a unique blend of legal know-how, coaching and business skills. And after doing it since 2007, we’re going to show you how to do it too.
In our first year as a franchise, five people have taken advantage of this opportunity and we’re looking for more recruits.
What we do
In short, we help people deal with divorces, child contact and finance disputes.
We fill forms out, assist with putting paperwork together, advise on the court process and are on hand with negotiations, as well as being the ‘arm around the shoulder’ to help people in court hearings, either virtually or in person.
Much of our work takes place anywhere there’s a phone and broadband connection. With those and a computer, you’re all set. It’s possible to work from balconies in Spain and the Nile Valley in Egypt, but we don’t recommend that!
We don’t have geographical patches either; there’s enough work for everyone. And our business model is flexible enough to work whether you choose to criss-cross the UK or work in your local area.
The money part
For your initial investment of £13,995 (plus VAT), you’re getting a ‘business in a box’. After that, ongoing costs will start from just £70 per month.
Commission payments are 10 per cent of sales (20 per cent if we refer clients to you).
Your licence fee for the first year is part of this start-up cost, with subsequent years currently costing £1,000 (plus VAT) per year.
In return, you could be turning over £5,000-£8,000 a month after trading for just 12 months.
For this you’re getting:
- All required training and support, which is ongoing while you’re with us.
- Access to our brand.
- Access to our marketing and sales system.
- Social media resources.
- A hotline to Family Law Assistance’s founders, who are there to support you.
- Access to our online community.
A final word
We’re looking for people across England and Wales.
All this seems a bit of a no-brainer to us and to quote one of our first franchisees, Jodie Dennison: “I’d have been an idiot not to take this opportunity.”.
We’re a hands-on company with a passion for what we do and we’re looking for others who want to be part of it. If that’s you, we should probably chat.
