All our McKenzie Friends are
  ABOUT US:    
  We are rolling out 100 retired police officers across the UK as McKenzie Friends under the name of 'Blue Light McKenzie Friends'. Our 'Blue Light McKenzie Friends' are laypeople who are not legally qualified or trained. We assist people through the family court process by mentoring and encouraging our clients to resolve issue by reducing conflict and to come to fair and balanced outcomes, at the earliest opportunity, based on the best interests of children.

We have two key messages:

1) That is is an absolute truth that family law doesn't need paid lawyers.There is no advantage whatsoever to any outcome in having a lawyer.

2) That it is the paid lawyers themselves who institutionally, and all too often, cause emotional and financial harm within the process with vulnerable children caught in the middle of adult conflict also suffering harm.

It is time to challenge both the Fees of Family Lawyers and their role within the process and we are inviting the public to join our debate. #lightnothate

We can routinely save our clients between 15,00 - 20,000+ on legal fees.

Our retired police McKenzie Friends are available in the Midlands, North East and North West Regions of the UK.

More will join over the coming months for the entire coverage of the UK.

  Why Retired Police Officers? :    
  Many retired police officers are likely to be natural McKenzie Friends because they already have the highest level of skills in terms of mentoring, mediating and problem solving.

Highly experienced in:

  • Conflict resolution
  • Problem Solving
  • Safeguarding Issues
  • Domestic Abuse
  • Writing Statements
  • Questionsing
  • Proceedures and processes
  • Providing compassionate support.
  • and the highest levels of Integrity.

We will provide our highest level of service, to support our clients, at about 10% of the cost of lawyers.

Philip Kedge is a retired police Chief Inspector and the founder and director of the McKenzie Friend UK Network. His aim is to take family law out of the hands of solicitors with an ethical business to reduce conflict and acrimony, to provide a cost effective McKenzie Friend national service and to reduce the emotional harm to children.
