Name: Denise McCabe, Senior Paralegal

Department: Family


Phone Number: 01905 723561


Denise has over 40 years of family law experience. Her expertise covers a broad range including divorce, separation, financial disputes, children, pre and post nuptial agreements.


Denise prefers to adopt a non-confrontational approach to her work and has a proven track record of settling cases without the need for expensive and long drawn out court proceedings, although after so many years specialising in family law, she knows when there is no option but to seek the intervention of the court if there is no other way to bring a case to a conclusion. Denise believes it is important to focus on the individual needs of each client and encourages them to adopt a practical view and focus on achieving a realistic outcome. She will not hesitate to tell you if she thinks expectations are unrealistic.  She will be proactive and advise you as to all your options so that you can make well informed decisions about your future.

"Thank you so much for all your support, you have been amazing. I appreciate how honest and kind you are. To have a solicitor who actually cares is priceless. I now see why you were recommended.

Best family lawyer for sure!"

Mrs D

"Just wanted to say a massive thank you for helping me when I really needed it. It's been a tough year but you helped to keep me sane and got it over the line for me. Thanks again."

Mr B

“Denise handled a change of name for my son on his recent 18th birthday.  She was not only efficient and clear but she was understanding of the emotional nature of the situation and kept a balance of warm but professional which made the process easy.  Many thanks.”

Mrs S

"I just wanted to send you a note to thank SME for their legal advice during my recent divorce and house purchase. I moved to SME after a difficult (and very expensive) time with another firm in Birmingham. SME was recommended to me by David Denovan-Smith and after speaking with Denise McCabe, I had no doubt I was with "a safe pair of hands". Denise has been exemplary throughout the entire difficult and very long process. There were times when I doubted we would ever finalise matters but Denise offered the right balance of support, legal advice and a friendly-ear! I am so thankful that I switched firms to SME. 

I would also like to thank Joanna Gardner who dealt with my matters if Denise was ever away and Liz [Stirk] who did the conveyancing when I bought the house outright from my husband. Everyone has always been very professional, but still friendly.

I've joked with Denise that I hope our paths never cross again! Seriously, I wouldn't hesitate in recommending SME in the future and am grateful to David for his recommendation."

Jane F

"I want to say a massive thank you to all of you and your colleagues for all your hard work in helping me with the divorce settlement. It’s been awful for me and you and your colleagues have got me through it. I am now able to move on with what I need to do. I am spending day 1 getting the house sorted. I am now happy again."
