“Most people will resort to the law and legal advice in times of crisis. Divorce is no different and to the average person its an unknown entity. Helen’s support over the past 18 months has been simply amazing. So Knowledgeable and always there with advice and guidance on the process as well as setting expectations on time scales even if they appeared excessive and never ending. Helen was able to explain all the forms and to reassure me when the court even asked for clarifying questions. I have finally survived the process and I would have no hesitation in recommending Helen as an experienced pair of hands to guide you through the Divorce process.”
“Helen has been helping me with a less than typical situation. Her expertise and attention to detail is exceptional. I have worked with other solicitors in the past, and Helen is by far the best I have ever worked with. I would not hesitate in recommending Helen in the future. Thank you Helen!” AF – client
“Helen and counsel were both brilliant. They are wonderful ladies and I am so grateful for all your help and advice. You have a wonderful firm there and work with compassion and professionalism.
I honestly couldn’t have done this without you all. It’s a scary process and you all made it easier and treated me with kindness and compassion when I needed it most. You should be proud of the integrity and honesty that you and your company work by. It’s rare to find these days. I felt like you were on my side and not just because I was a client but because you believed in me and knew that I deserved to see my children. I didn’t feel like a number or “just another job”. You all cared and that’s so important. I would recommend you to anyone.” LE – client
