When establishing McAlister Family Law, Amanda’s vision was to create a practice that delivered life changing results for clients going through a separation or divorce. A practice with a heart, with passion and one where children’s welfare is the first priority. It is this vision and the recruitment of the very best team, that has led McAlister Family Law to be ranked as Number one in the Legal 500 directory and the winner of Family Law team of the year, three years in a run in the Manchester Legal Awards.

As a divorcee, a mother and a stepparent, Amanda brings empathy and personal experience of the many stresses and strains that a marriage breakdown can cause.  She believes that adapting to a new kind of family life is not straightforward, but takes courage and strength, and that having the best family lawyers to guide you through the process can make all the difference.

She has a reputation as being warm and engaging but at the same time is known for being a fighter, someone who is fearless when pursuing her client’s interests. She adopts a no nonsense, straight talking style and has a unique ability to cut through emotion to deliver her clients the very best results.

Amanda’s expertise spans all aspects of family law but she specialises in divorce involving financial issues, particularly those with an international element, complex pension or family trusts. She also represents parents and wider family members in disputes concerning arrangements for children.
