Mark has over 12 years experience as a family lawyer and is a partner in the firm’s family law team in Oxford.



I could not have had better service than that offered by Royds Withy King’s family team. I negotiated the final settlement myself but with advice and assistance whenever required from Mark. He was able to clearly and concisely point out all the options available and explain the likely outcomes in relation to the settlement. It was very reassuring and this led to a settlement which was fair and which recognised my position in the most positive way.

The Legal 500 - The Clients Guide to Law Firms

I see what a devastating effect a relationship breakdown can have on all family members, especially children. Over the years I’ve learned that the wider family group members sometimes get overlooked, such as grandparents who play such an important role in so many families. The rights of grandparents have become one of my personal areas of interests over the years. In a divorce, there is a multitude of aspects to consider, and my aim is to get an amicable settlement where all parties are treated fairly.
