Recent Testimonials for Hannah Cornish

“We just wanted to say thank you for everything you did for Amber. It was a very stressful situation for her and you made it much more bearable by being forthright, efficient and at times very shrewd! Hopefully now this will be the end of it and they can get on with being Daniel's parents. Thanks again for everything and take care.”

Ms Galea

“Can I take this opportunity to thank you for what you have achieved for me. I still remember my first call to you which was late on a Sunday evening and I had just been hit with life changing circumstances. I remember it so clearly because at that time my life was in a real mess, I was on the verge of losing everything I had worked hard to get over the last 20 years and I was pretty low. From our first call you reassured me with your calm approach in what was a very confusing and maybe unique set of circumstances. From day one I have admired your professionalism, discretion and patience. I will recommend you to everybody I come across in the future. ”

Mr Giles

“During my recent divorce, Hannah not only represented me legally; she counselled me, advised me and reassured me throughout what was a very stressful time.  The bills I received were fully itemized and Hannah's charges were extremely reasonable. Hannah's expertise and skilful negotiations resulted in a settlement I would not have dared hope for at the start of the process.  In fact the only drawback to having my divorce finalised is not getting any more of Hannah's morale boosting emails!  Thanks for everything Hannah!!”
