“I was involved in acrimonious divorce proceedings for over 12 months using a solicitor that claimed to be an expert in divorce, progress was slow and, the other side appeared to have every advantage and I was becoming increasingly concerned. Amanda was then recommended, and immediately upon meeting her she was a breath of fresh air. Amanda understood all of the issues from the very beginning, and provided realistic well explained advice from the outset. Throughout she was always approachable and efficient and is supported by excellent support staff. Amanda is an expert in her field, I could not have had better service and I recommend her without hesitation.”
Mr Taylor, Cheshire Police Federation member, May 2015
