Legal Director

Caroline Dresden

Family law expert and collaborative lawyer

Caroline Dresden, Lodders Solicitors, Family Matriominal, Stratford upon Avon

Short bio:

I am a family law solicitor and a Legal Director.

I specialise in high net worth matrimonial finance cases, especially those involving business assets and pensions, regularly acting for clients with very substantial assets. I also have an interest in pensions on divorce and enjoy the details of resolving the financial disclosure and presenting my case in a way that maximises the client’s position.

I am a fully trained collaborative lawyer and a member of Resolution.

I enjoy resolving complex problems without resorting to court and helping people to achieve a consensual outcome that respects what each party has contributed to the relationship in their different ways. This is important when seeking a pragmatic resolution, between parties who wish to retain a civil relationship, for the benefit of their children.

I am assisted by my paralegal, Alicia Farran and my secretary, Lynda Collins.


  • I am based in Birmingham

    What I excel in:

    • Application for Financial Orders
    • Cohabitation
    • Divorce
    • Family Law
    • International Divorce Disputes
    • Pre and Postnuptial Agreements

    My career highlights

    • Representing a mother whose child had brain damage at birth and proving negligence, securing a multi million-pound settlement.
    • Proving my client’s wife had forged her disclosure, so getting a second final hearing and a fantastic outcome for my client.
