I really appreciate the way in which you have always responded to my enquiries so quickly and ensured that I've always been kept up to date. I will have absolutely no hesitation in recommending you to others in the future.
Many thanks for your help, positivity and pragmatic approach throughout our move.
You are a credit to your profession. Many, many thanks.
I would like to thank you very much, and all involved at Biscoes who have helped me achieve the outcome I so desperately needed. I came through the toughest experience of my life and you have played a major part in getting me through it. You explained everything very well regarding my case and did it in a very professional and courteous manner; I thank you all once again.
I just wanted to say a heartfelt thank you for all that you have done for me, over the past few months I think I said to you early on that I needed someone strong to help me stand up to my husband and get though the coming months and you absolutely proved to be that person. No matter how low or disheartened I felt, I always left your office confident in the knowledge all would be well. Thank you so much!
Although originally from North Yorkshire Franca has worked in the South since 1984. She qualified as a solicitor in 1986
Franca specialises in family law. She can help with divorce and finances on divorce, children matters for example who a child should live with or spend time with (previously known as residence and contact), non-molestation and occupation applications. Franca is always available to deal with emergency matters at very short notice to include out of office hours if necessary.
Franca’s particular interest is representing teachers and members of the Armed Forces in respect of divorce, finances and children matters. She very much appreciates the particular issues these two groups experience and will work tirelessly to pursue such cases. She is happy to tailor her work to a client’s specific needs.
For many years Franca has been actively involved in issues around domestic abuse including delivering training on domestic abuse awareness and related matters. She has sat on management committees for various local refuges. She is currently a non executive Director of a charity supporting victims and survivors of domestic abuse and is actively involved with the Citizens Advice Bureaux.
Franca heads Biscoes specialist Domestic Abuse Team which was formed in 2006 and remains committed to raising awareness in whatever ways she can. She is happy to give talks and presentations to interested groups.
