About Us

Richard Shaw is the proprietor of Lincolns Family Law. He founded Lincolns Family Law in 2012 in order to offer a responsive, efficient and competitively priced legal service specializing in family law.

Richard qualified as a Solicitor in 2006 after an earlier career working as a social services manager with an inner London council.

Qualifications: BA (Hons), LL.B (Hons)

Having spent his earlier career practising personal injury law as a paralegal, Richard has since 2006 specialised in divorce, financial remedies and children’s law cases and has built up substantial experience in these areas. He also has considerable experience of advising and representation in  cohabitation disputes, domestic violence cases and negotiating and drafting prenuptial agreements.

Richard believes in negotiation wherever possible before court proceedings, but will advance his client’s case resolutely and diligently at all stages.

In his spare time he likes movies, history and music – but family life with his two school age children takes up most of his free time.
