Atherton Godfrey

Atherton Godfrey Solicitors are one of the largest law firms in Doncaster. With around 120 legal and support staff, we provide a wide range of high quality legal services to clients locally, regionally and nationally.

Established in April 1979, by partners John Atherton and Charles Godfrey –hence the name, we handled mainly matrimonial and dispute work.

Over the years, we have recruited additional specialist lawyers and created new departments, allowing us to expand the range of services that we offer to individuals, families, organisations and businesses.

Atherton Godfrey is recommended by The Legal 500 and Chambers and Partners and belongs to a wide range of specialist legal panels. Both the firm and individual members of staff are recognised by the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL) and the Law Society as experts in their relevant fields of law.

We are one of only a few firms in the region to be able to offer legal aid for birth injuries and some areas of public law.

We are proud that while the firm has grown, it has retained its character as a high street law firm offering friendly, straight forward legal advice, of the highest standard. Much of our business is by recommendation from existing clients, who range from family generations to national construction and development companies.

The firm actively supports the local community in a range of ways and is heavily involved in charity work. We adopted Aurora as our chosen charity some years ago, since when we have raised funds through events such as a 48-mile cycle ride, dragon boat racing and marathon running. Each year, we also run a highly successful will-writing campaign where we invite clients to make donations to charity instead of paying a legal fee.
