Trusted by 1000s of Happy Clients

Thank you so much for all your efforts on behalf of my daughter with her divorce settlement. I can’t tell you what a relief it’s been for her and all the family. She can now move on with her life. Getting a divorce from the courts and agreeing an equitable settlement is such a difficult and distressing process. You often feel like you’re in a maze at a time when you’re most vulnerable. After a horrendous experience with another solicitor’s firm, once we transferred to your firm the matter was dealt with efficiently and smoothly. We can’t thank you and your team enough for such an excellent and professional job!”

KK (Mother) Highly Contested Divorce and Finance

“When my wife abducted our children to the Middle East while I was living in the Far East – and issued a divorce in England claiming our house – other lawyers would not take on such a case! There were 9 countries involved and no one knew if the English divorce had a legal basis. You protected me from months of legal battles on this point. You flew out to the Middle East to negotiate a settlement via your local lawyers, oversaw the Islamic divorce and children arrangements, and filed a Consent Order in the English court for the Finances. The children came back of their own free will to live in my house in England and I am on good terms with my ex-wife. I can never thank you enough!”

JK (Husband in an International Divorce, Financial Claim and Children dispute)

“Thank you so much for all your hard work. I cannot express how much all your efforts and input means to me. I have cried in front of you and you have been so kind. When I first transferred my case from other lawyers, after spending so much and getting nowhere, you immediately turned the case around! Because of you, I am now meeting my son again after 2 years and astonishingly we have rekindled our bond very quickly. am now a man and father again. My family are also meeting my son. From the bottom of my heart, thank you so much!”


FF (Father who successfully has time with his son, after a highly contested children case)
