Recent Testimonials for Hannah Cornish

“From our first meeting through to this final order I have been extremely impressed by both the highest standards of your personal service and your professional grasp and prompt communications.”

Police Officer, Bedfordshire

“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. ”
