WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY...
“I was delighted with the service I received. Your Lawyer was fantastic, and I could not recommend her enough. I had been with an alternative solicitor for many years and had never been advised that I did not need to go to court. She advised me to try mediation, which I did, and how the matter is resolved. I would definitely recommend.”
“Your Lawyer was so helpful and compassionate. She has been brilliant! I couldn’t fault her. She has been good to work with. Very straightforward and easy to talk to and she really understood my situation. Overall she has been great. As has Emmersons. I am very pleased with the service. Helaina was lovely, always calling me back and there have been no delays apart from those outside of her control. I would recommend this Family Lawyer and Emmersons to anyone.”
