If you live in Widnes and you suddenly find that you need legal advice or support, finding the right solicitor is essential. At Forster Dean, we’re here to help with practical solutions and solid, expert advice to our clients.

Legal situations can often be complex and the first you thing you probably want is someone to listen to your problem and then go through the options in plain language you can understand. We can provide legal advice in a variety of areas, including:

Personal Injury Claims

If you have suffered an accident that wasn’t your fault and think you may have a case to claim compensation, the sooner you talk to an experienced solicitor the better. You might have been in a road traffic accident, suffered an injury at work or simply had a trip or fall when out shopping.

You may be unable to work because of the accident or need help with living changes because you now have a disability. There could well be a psychological impact from your injury that you need help getting over.

Our team of personal injury lawyers will sit down and discuss your case and give you the legal advice you need to start making a claim.


One of the more obvious reasons that people need a solicitor is when they decide to buy, sell, let or remortgage a property. A good team of solicitors will work with you to make sure all the right paperwork is produced on time and your property deal moves forward as smoothly as possible.

Family Law

Family law covers a broad spectrum and can be quite challenging for people. It’s often an emotional time and involves delicate matters such as family disputes and childcare problems as well as simpler legal issues like putting in place a pre-nuptial agreement between two people.


Divorce can also be a pretty traumatic time and the first thing you need is a friendly ear and supportive legal partner to act as a guide. You might just want some initial advice or perhaps you’re looking to undertake mediation. Whatever you require, our experienced divorce solicitors in Wigan can provide you with all the understanding and support you need.

Wills and Probate

We handle all aspects of wills and probate. We can help you put together the right, legally binding will for your needs, organize power of attorney and handle probate once a loved one has passed away.

Employment Law

With the Covid-19 pandemic, employment law has become a fairly hot topic both here in the North West and around the UK. Forster Dean can help with everything from pay disputes and redundancy to discrimination at work and unfair dismissal.

We aim to put you together with the experienced and qualified solicitor who understands your needs and will work to support you, whether that’s simply creating a legal document or taking action against a third party for a personal injury or negligence claim.
