TESTIMONIAL: Chris Barber was my solicitor for divorce proceedings and it feels a little strange writing a review for the circumstances. However, Chris was very good at explaining complex situations involved in the proceedings. I felt he was very understanding and accepted my views and opinion in all stages of the divorce.

CLIENT: Mari Lee
TESTIMONIAL: Lisa Shrimpton helped me to negotiate financial settlement during my divorce. Her no-nonsense approach was firm and direct when dealing with my Ex-Spouse’s legal team, although this was always conducted in a professional manner. Lisa is knowledgeable and she patiently took the time to explain complicated legal terms and procedures which I did not understand. She was efficient and prompt and gave me realistic expectations throughout the process. I am very grateful for Lisa’s support during an obviously difficult and emotional time.

TESTIMONIAL: Hannah Magee and her team are truly amazing. My case was very complicated and took many years simultaneously working both here and in Europe, Hannah never stopped fighting on my behalf and remained positive and calm throughout .Her knowledge and professionalism and sheer determination brought a result that I can still not quite believe to this day, My family and I am now able to move forward and cannot thank her enough. I cannot recommend Hannah Magee enough

CLIENT: Tony Jay
TESTIMONIAL: I cannot rate Robertsons highly enough. During my Divorce; Hannah Magee and her team not only managed the legal aspects but importantly also took into account the emotional impacts to both parties. This resulted in successful outcomes, over and above of what I was initially expecting.
