Continuing . . . .

As adulthood is reached, many take to the roads with their newly acquired driving licences. Often, they are involved in accidents, some serious or catastrophic. Some break the laws of the road and end-up facing legal action because of their actions. Other young adults fall foul of the law because of criminal activities, sometimes simply because of peer pressure.

At some point, it’s natural to consider leaving the family home and to look at buying or renting a first home and need expert assistance with that.

Other young people may not be so fortunate, finding themselves without a home or family, or have simply left because of family tensions or disputes between parents.

As people enter employment, the work environment, complications grow. They can face discrimination, be subject to poor working environments, become exploited or be dismissed unfairly.

As people age, commitments grow both in responsibility and financially. These increase the pressure, leading some into difficulties that can tear their families apart, requiring expert advice and mediation services.

Our daily lives require us to interact with society in numerous ways – such as through the procurement of services, simply buying the products we need or just through the daily dealings with people we come into contact with. These can lead to injury or disputes, and sometimes accusations of negligence requiring civil litigation in the more serious cases.

Once we have achieved some form of stability in our lives, our thoughts turn to future security for ourselves and our family. The matter of wills and trusts will surface and require assistance with. And, as we age, it’s natural to consider how we may be protected if we become unable to fend for ourselves or suffer the inability to make rational decisions where our finances are concerned.

Who ever said that life is a journey?

It was Ralph Waldo Emerson who said “Life is a journey, not a destination”. Life certainly is a journey and sometimes we seem to end up at a destination we never intended to arrive at, with consequences we did not foresee, no matter how temporary. The team at Foys Solicitors pretty much gets to see all of what life throws at us in today’s fast pace and rather unforgiving world.

Our personal law team has a wealth of experience assisting people work through the legal challenges they face. We’ve been a part of the local communities in and around Doncaster, Rotherham and Sheffield since the 1970, so we understand the pressures these communities face on a daily basis.
