Haigh Law was founded by Sylvia Haigh. Sylvia has been practising family law for 18 years, since qualifying as a solicitor in 1996.
She worked for several larger regional firms in Cambridge, Oxford and Aylesbury before establishing her own practice. Sylvia’s previous role was with Taylor Vinters in Cambridge, where she worked for 4 ½ years.
Sylvia is a collaborative lawyer and a member of Resolution – the association of family lawyers committed to resolving legal issues in a constructive and non-confrontational manner to minimise the impact of relationship breakdown on families.
Sylvia has had the following endorsements in “The UK Legal 500” publication:
- “Senior associate and collaborative lawyer Sylvia Haigh is also recommended for her advice to professionals on divorce and pre-marital agreements, and for her expertise on cohabitation matters” - 2019

- “Recommended for an instinctive grasp of what works” - 2017
Haigh Law understands that some clients prefer their lawyer to have full conduct of their case, whilst others choose to represent themselves and ask for advice as and when they need it. We will work with you to ensure that you obtain the level of service that is right for your particular circumstances as we are mindful of the fact that legal fees are a concern for all our clients.
