• What do we do?

    From our City centre offices in Exeter, our expert Solicitors offer specialist legal advice to both the business and non-business client.

    Clearly our main purpose is to provide sound legal advice. However, as well as the legal aspects of a case, we will also take time to consider other non-legal matters which may be just as important. It is because you are put in direct contact with a Solicitor, who will see your case through from beginning to end and becuase we use plain English when speaking with you, that you can be confident that you are in control of things.

    So, no stuffy lawyers, no legal jargon, one main point of contact and a relaxed and informal atmosphere with a fabulous view of Exeter Cathedral. What are you waiting for? Choose Morgan & Pope for a comprehensive approach and advice you can rely upon.



  • Who are we

    We are a medium sized law firm based in Cathedral Yard, Exeter and you can expect to receive, as standard, exceptionally high quality legal services at a price you can afford. However, it is our friendly, non-stuffy approach to the law that sets us apart from the rest of the lawyers in Exeter and makes us a must when deciding who to instruct to deal with your everyday legal needs.

    Our clients choose us because:

    • We provide sensible and comprehensive advice
    • We are friendly and approachable
    • We are efficient
    • We really do care



The High Court has ruled that her claim can be considered even though Vince argued she was too late.

It seems that spouses can bring claims against each other without any time bar (unlike other claims which are subject to strict limitation periods).

There is surely a question about the fairness of this and an even sharper reminder to spouses to deal with financial matters when they divorce.

Of course every case is different and it does not mean there will be a sudden rush to re-open old claims.

Also the court’s decision merely allows Miss Wyatt to bring her claim. Whether she will actually leave the court with a substantial award or empty handed remains to be seen.

However the advice for spouses when they divorce must be if in doubt sort it out. A financial Order is essential in every divorce, whether made by the Court or agreed between the parites by way of a consent Order. Don't simply do nothing!

If you're worried about the cost of sorting out financial matters on divorce, don't be. We offer fixed fees in most cases so that you have certainty about cost now and also certainty about your financial future.
