I would like to commend the work of Mark Carlton and James Marsden. What should have been a simple matter was made complicated and unnecessarily long by a difficult District Judge. Mark and James kept me updated throughout however and were as frustrated with the judges' comments as I was. However thanks to their professionalism it was fairly pain free process and I would recommend their services to any potential client.

All the staff were very friendly and understanding. Charlotte on reception was particularly helpful and an excellent 'front of house'! Mark Carlton displayed an understanding but pragmatic approach which put my mind at ease and filled me full of confidence. The human face/aspect of your firm is second to none!

For myself I found mediation very helpful and felt we were making headway. Unfortunately we hit a brick wall when my husband refused to cooperate with us. But at all times I felt very satisfied with the service Mr Wareing provided for me in a professional friendly manner. I would like to take the opportunity to thank you for your services.

We had a very delicate case regarding the welfare of our grandson, Claire was a brilliant solicitor - she was exceptionally professional but also compassionate and caring and made the whole experience of going to court etc bearable and supported us throughout.

We were kept fully informed and at no time did she give us any false hope of outcomes and overall the outcome was in everyone's best interests especially the child in question. At the moment we are all working forward and progressing as stated by the court.

Great thanks and appreciation to Claire's hard work. Thanks once again.

Read more

I must commend the service that I have received through your company and in particular the support from my solicitor, Cathy Bennet-Ryan, during what has been a very difficult time.

She has always provided sound advice and reassurance whilst ensuring that I have been fully aware of the risks in the process of litigation that I have been involved in. Throughout the process she has been available to support the preparation of documentation and guidance on the use of counsel in the court proceedings. Of particular merit was her calm and positive approach from day one when I met her through one of your free initial consultation meetings, particularly when a number of other solicitors from other companies seemed loath to support a father in child arrangements proceedings.

I have been impressed during all my dealings with Cathy’s quiet and confident approach and guidance, and whilst we were successful in this stage of the process she ensured I was fully aware and prepared for the risk of the hearing going against me.

This has been the most difficult period of my life. Thank you so much for all your help.

It's been a long journey since our first meeting; I am now able to move on, I think, to a happier and healthier future. Although my children still have no contact with X. I think they, and I, feel stronger and more able to move forward on our terms.

I owe my future to Claire Parker and Lisa Boileau. I cannot speak highly enough of your staff, not only did they advise me so professionally but they showed me that I did have rights and I did have a future when, emotionally, I had given up on my life. I firmly believe they went the extra mile and I wouldn't be here without them.

I just wanted to say thank you to your wonderful company, who I will recommend to my friends and colleagues, and a special thank you again to Lisa and Claire, as I'm eternally grateful.

Thank you for your involvement as mediator in our client's case.

Our client said that whilst initially she found the process of mediation challenging, ultimately she found it very helpful, therapeutic and has been very complimentary about how effective you were as a mediator facilitating the agreement in this matter.

May I echo her comments and thank you.
