"Having been recommended to Field Seymour Parkes by the Armed Forces Pension Society, I was introduced to Sue Baker who is a specialist in dealing with divorces of personnel in the Armed Forces.  Sue proved personable, efficient and supportive throughout.  An experienced solicitor, she explained the intricacies of divorce procedures in simple language and ensured I was apprised of the full range of options and potential outcomes so there were no surprises.  She has a detailed understanding of the Armed Forces Pension Scheme and was able to offer advice on the implications of divorce accordingly.  I benefited from a dedicated, professional and responsive service from the outset."
