Our Reputation Speaks for itself
I was going through a complex divorce and needed a solicitor who was prepared to fight. Mediation, sadly was out of the question in my situation. I was referred to Michelle by a fellow professional. Michelle was amazing throughout. MRS M
Michelle is good at fine detail, is thorough in her approach and knows her stuff 100%. She advised on the best way to separate a complicated property business and put together a watertight case in court in conjunction with a superb barrister…..Michelle sees a person, not just a number. MRS S
Sandra was fantastic from day one. She understood my situation straight away and acted very compassionately. Sandra was very easy to talk to and I found her very approachable, she explained every detail in simple terms and how it would affect my position. Sandra achieved a result I didn’t think was even possible. Mrs W
I was concerned that due to the long length of my marriage and relative complexity of our finances which combined personal and business assets on both sides, that I needed to find a solicitor with some experience of understanding and untangling personal and small business finance. Michelle and Jill worked extremely hard on my behalf, against a much larger law firm with formidable resources, and achieved the settlement I was seeking.Mr P
