Mr P

Orsett, Essex

I would just like to say thank you to Louise Margiotta for all your hard work and support and thought you did an amazing job ... I also thought you were fantastic in court as we achieved pretty much everything we wanted.

Mr G

Bishop's Stortford

You did a great job countering barristers engaged by my then wife, to conclude a reasonable settlement for me at the Court. Thanks very much for your help and advice all those years ago - it has proven to be excellent!

Mr. D.

Bishop's Stortford

We would like to thank Abby Westell - her compassionate professionalism, wisdom and support is very much appreciated.

Mrs B.

Colchester

I was impressed by your prompt responses, your clarity and the way you all kept me on track. I couldn’t have asked for more from the team and I honestly believe I wouldn’t be in such a good place now if it hadn’t have been for you all as a team. A very big thank you.

Mr B

Cheshire

I have often thought back to some of our conversations in 2007 and your wise words on future possibilities. As I approach retirement, I will be left with some choices to make, but am in the fortunate position of being able to make those choices without financial pressure. Thank you.

Ms D

Bedfordshire

All in all, I still can’t thank you enough for all the help, advice and encouragement you gave me at the time of the divorce.  I always felt really safe that you would get the best settlement in the nicest possible way.

Mrs G

Chelmsford

Victoria, you have supported me through the worst time of my life and gave me the confidence to get through the day to day and cope with things you knew I struggled with. I am very grateful to you and feel I have become a stronger confident person because of it.

Ms. D. C.

Leigh-on-Sea

Caroline Andrews has helped with my divorce and with two separate child arrangement orders. Her advice is easy to understand and she has been a tremendous support to our family during some very tough times. Thank you once again for all that you have done over the years, for me and my kids.
