What Our Clients Say

"I would like to commend Andrea Hewitson on her sensitive and supportive professional advice and assistance during this long protracted case. I found her availability and reassurance invaluable during a very difficult time." Ms. P

"I wanted to express my gratitude and appreciation for the level of professional service I have received from Karen Prudhoe throughout the duration of my recently concluded divorce proceedings. I don’t imagine I've been the most complex case in divorce law history but nonetheless it was difficult for me to have to go through personally and Karen navigated me through it with compassion and professionalism. When the inevitable emotionally charged episodes came along she was a steady and reassuring influence. I felt able to contact her on any matter and she was always happy to make herself available to talk through my issues and concerns. 

Many thanks again for such a professional and personal service." Mr. W
