Vivienne Middleton


T: 0121 200 0890


Vivienne joined Lodders in July 2017 when her previous firm, DFLP, merged with Lodders. Vivienne has worked exclusively in the field of family law for the last 20 years.

She is equally adept at resolving financial and children cases. She has a particular expertise with children disputes where complexities surrounding disputed allegations of fact, relocation or jurisdiction issues are a feature of the case.

Vivienne is a tough negotiator and effective advocate, having conducted cases to the Court of Appeal level.  She is a firm believer in early intervention and advance planning.

In the 2019 Chambers Guide to the UK Legal Profession, Vivienne was highlighted as an Associate as having extensive experience assisting clients with financial disputes and children matters, with a particular focus on cases involving relocation issues. Sources report: “She is very dynamic, assertive and confident while being caring and considerate during a stressful time.”

Her clients say:

“Vivienne is a true expert in her field and offers the highest level of integrity and legal support to her clients in what are often very challenging circumstances.  Vivienne’s communication is always swift, accurate and empathetic.  Throughout the whole process of working with Vivienne, I always felt confident and reassured thanks to her extensive knowledge and professionalism.  I cannot recommend Vivienne’s services enough and will continue to instruct Vivienne on all future family law matters”.

“Vivienne’s involvement (from our first consultation in October 2009 to the final Directions hearing last month) was impeccable.  She conducted herself and represented [my sister] with professionalism.  During the many many visits to court, through her manner and composure, she always kept us at ease and explained all that was taking place together with advice and possible options. Vivienne is most certainly a very strong, credible and valuable asset to your practice (and I dare say to your profession also).  As I’m sure many others will have said already, for divorce and children matters – it is Vivienne that you want on your side!”

“I wanted to say thank you for all the hard work you put into our case.  I know you put your heart and soul in and have a big workload.  I will always appreciate it…A wonderful result and I know best for the girls…it is lives and hearts you are influencing by bringing these outcomes”.

“She was excellent and explained the whole procedure in detail.  We feel very positive about the result”.

“Vivienne is a true professional.  She operates with a high degree of integrity, in a timely manner. She is empathetic and provides clear guidance in the fog of the emotional fall out of divorce.  I will continue to recommend her to anyone in need of her legal services”.

I wanted to thank you again for your support over a very difficult period - not only is your advice always professional, sound and pragmatic but I also get the impression that you care about your clients and want the best for them. You've been a rock, thank you Vivienne.
