Simon Pollard

Partner and Head of Alexander and Partners Solicitors

I am a partner and I have the widest legal experience at Alexander and Partners, covering a broad range of legal areas. I have specialised in family law since qualifying as a solicitor over 30 years ago. Initially acting on welfare rights for the Child Poverty Action Group and after a brief career in politics as Labour councillor for Barnet in 1971, I became involved with Alexander and Partners.

The first Alexander and Partners office in Harlesden was opened in 1973 and quickly became a notable community law firm, doing a wide range of work, from criminal to housing, employment to injunctions and family law. Having had a number of reported cases to the European Court of Justice has given us additional experience and legal skills.

In recent years my work has mostly focused on childcare law cases and medical negligence.

Having been there from the beginning I feel I am the keeper of the firm’s values and history, and its vision. 

I take pride in offering my clients advice and support in a sympathetic and professional way with transparent and predictable fees.

At Alexander and Partners we have over forty years of experience in resolving problems related to family law, which has become one of our most established areas of law. This includes divorce and separation, the un-married family, childcare and domestic abuse.

I have developed a wealth of expertise in the un-married family, a difficult area where couples, or members of the same family, have property together and are in dispute. This can include a couple, members of a family or a ‘common law marriage’.

In childcare I do my own advocacy, including final hearings, which can last a few days. Having me as their representative gives clients reassurance and the benefit of continuity of representation at particularly difficult moments in their lives.

Medical negligence can be very distressing and emotionally difficult. My extensive experience in this area and professional and compassionate way gives my clients reassurance that they are in great hands. At Alexander and Partners we operate on a no win no fee basis.

I have been a member of the Law Society’s Personal Injury Panel for many years and a founding member of the Children Panel. 

My interest in children extends beyond the area of law and I am actively involved in the local community. I am school governor at Malorees Infant School, in South Brent.

David Chalcraft

Partner

I am a partner and the main litigator at Alexander and Partners Solicitors. I joined Alexander and Partners 13 years ago having practised for over 30 years in firms around the Home Counties and London. I qualified as a solicitor in 1985 in Manchester. 

Personal injury and medical negligence are areas that need to be dealt with sensitively and professionally. My extensive experience developed over 25 years together with the quality mark that comes with being a member of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers, are a great combination. 

I take pride in persisting and fighting hard for my clients achieving great results in recovering damages for them. Regularly clients come to me after their solicitors have given up on the case and I am frequently able to turn the case around and win a successful outcome for the client.

I believe in delivering a first-class service but with transparent and predictable fees. At Alexander and Partners we cover all types of accident claims and operate on a no win no fee basis. Your first interview is free.

Working in the multi-cultural environment of Harlesden is great and I am always ready to listen and support my clients in the best way I can.  
 
I have gained a wealth of experience in civil litigation and dispute resolution generally in the Small Claims and County Courts. I regularly act for both claimants and defendants in a wide range of everyday litigation disputes both before and after they end up in court proceedings.

I am a past member of the Law Society Personal Injury panel.

I have both grown up children and a younger family and enjoy spending time with them all. I enjoy scuba diving with my older children and walking and camping holidays with my younger family.

Rupinder Bhinder

Partner

I am a partner and have specialised in Family Law since qualifying as a solicitor in 2006. I joined Alexander and Partners as a trainee solicitor in 2004 and have developed a wealth of experience working in the Citizens Advice Bureau in Brent and other voluntary organisations previously.

Families and couples that are facing family and childcare issues go through what is a very difficult time in their lives. I take pride in supporting and advising my clients in a sympathetic and professional way. My experience and knowledge developed over the last 12 years in the specialist areas of Child Law and Domestic abuse and my sympathetic and practical way, gives clients the confidence they need.  

I believe in delivering a first-class service but with transparent and predictable fees. I act on a range of legal areas such as children law, care proceedings acting for parents and children through their guardian and domestic violence. I represent husbands, wives or partners in a divorce situation and on financial settlement. I represent my clients in court from preliminary hearings through to fully contested hearings.

I enjoy my work particularly regarding children matters and I take pride in supporting parents and children at what is the most difficult time of their lives.

I am a member of the Law Society’s Children Panel.

I speak fluently Punjabi and am able to offer advice to many members of our community.

Susannah Ross

Assistant Solicitor

I am an assistant solicitor at Alexander and Partners and have specialised in Family Law since 1991 when I qualified as a solicitor. I have developed a wealth of experience in this area working for a number of high street legal firms previously in London and Hertfordshire.

Family breakdown and separation are very difficult events and I make sure I support and advise my clients in a sympathetic and professional way. My experience developed over 26 years and my approachable and friendly way, will give you the confidence that you are in great hands. 

At Alexander and Partners we have a transparent and predictable system of fees and we deliver a first-class service without the price tag. 

As an experienced and all-round family and divorce solicitor, my areas of expertise include, care proceedings acting for children, parents and other relatives. I cover specialist children work, such as special guardianship and adoption. I also act on domestic violence injunctions, divorce and financial disputes and disputes between parents about children. 

I am on the Children and the Family Law panels of the Law Society.

I am involved in amateur dramatics and I sing in a choir. I also enjoy scuba diving when travelling.
