Robin is a Consultant Solicitor in our Family Law Department and specialises in all aspects of Matrimonial Law including, Divorce, Children, Financial and Injunctive proceedings. Robin has considerable experience in dealing with very complex financial remedy cases, involving substantial assets, business assets, overseas assets, pensions, trust and inventions of third parties.

Robin has been a solicitor for over 25 years and is an accredited Specialist with Resolution and was in fact one of the first solicitors to acquire this status in the Coventry & Warwickshire area. Prior to joining Askews in 2014 Robin was a Senior Partner and head of the Family Law Department at his previous practice.

Robin is also a trained Resolution Mediator and a Collaborative Lawyer, who is able to follow this process if it is suitable to meet the individual clients needs and to enable matters to be resolved amicably and as expediently and cost efficiently as possible.

Robin strongly believes in taking a cooperative and constructive approach with his cases and clients. Robin tries to ensure that he focuses on the individual clients wishes and needs and tries to assist in managing clients in what is often a very emotional and difficult time in their lives. Robin’s ability to communicate in plain English and to ensure that his clients understand their options fully before making a decision, make him a popular choice for clients. If however, it is clear that matters cannot be resolved without starting Court proceedings, Robin will promote his clients interest in a robust and pragmatic way.

Robin works closely with his personal assistants and paralegals in the Family Department.

Robin has also worked as a Criminal Lawyer and still remains a police and Court Duty Solicitor and so has a wealth of experience in criminal and cross related issues that can spill into Family Law.

Robin has acted in High profile and complex cases in both family and criminal law. Such cases have included multi million pounds assets including assets aboard.

With respect to Criminal Law, Robin has dealt with all aspects of cases from motoring offences right up to very serious cases involving murder, drug importation and complex fraud.

I engaged the services of Miss Reardan, Askews Legal LLP, to help me reach a divorce related financial agreement acceptable to the court. This included the completion of a financial order and gaining approval of that order by the court. I dealt with the court directly on other aspects of the divorce. Miss Reardan was happy to work with me in this way.All my dealings with Miss Reardan were during the pandemic which meant we never met face to face, mostly communicating by email, letters and the very occasional telephone conversation after an initial video call. This worked very well. I found the advice given by Karen to be clear and very helpful. Questions were generally answered promptly, the very few exceptions occurring when she was supporting other clients in court which is totally understandable and acceptable. The pension on divorce expert engaged by Miss Reardan to calculate an appropriate pension split was equally efficient, cooperative and clear in their communication and final report.Miss Reardan and other Askews staff have always been very polite, straight forward and supportive towards me. Payment was requested and paid monthly, with an updated estimate every month showing what the likely overall spend would be. I found this worked well with no shock at the end.I employed Askews Legal LLP services after seeing an advert saying they specialised in the financial aspects relating to divorce. Overall, I am very pleased with their services and would recommend them to others in similar circumstances to mine.
