"Fortunately (or unfortunately) Michelle has now acted for me in two divorces. Upon ending up in my second proceedings I immediately reached for Michelle's number as she was nothing short of fantastic during my first brush with divorce. Michelle has unfailingly had a singular focus on my best interests at all times. Always giving sound, sensible and pragmatic advice aimed to bring matters to a speedy conclusion where possible but never at the expense of what was the best outcome for me and my personal situation. In addition to all of this, Michelle provided an enormous amount of understanding and support during the most difficult and testing times. All that being said, I hope never to have to instruct Michelle a third time, but if that day ever came I would not hesitate to reach for her number once more."

"Thank you for all your help in my divorce, I do really appreciate the kind and non combative way in which you have led me through it. I have definitely grown tremendously as a person. I can now look forward to the next stage of my life with a real sense of optimism. Please do also pass on my thanks to the members of your team who have also supported me during the process."
