Simpson Millar LLP 's national family teams are led out of its Leeds office, enabling the firm to act across the UK on matrimonial finance and children law issues.

Testimonials

Very good – in particular the public law children team has a thorough and professional service which is often not seen in similar firms. The firm stands out in the crowd.

I have worked with Patricia Cannon on a long running care case. Patricia was fully prepared, gave the clients a really professional service and ensured that she was on hand to assist both me and senior counsel as necessary. I valued the added dynamism that she brought to the case and to our team.

I believe that the strengths to making this practice unique is their employees. Everyone you speak to want to help and want to resolve any enquiry you have and support you through your query. 

I worked with an individual solicitor David Lister when they were employed by their previous firm. They then moved to the head of family services at Simpson Millar and I decided to follow David on his journey. I had a good relationship with David and he has supported me through some of the most difficult times of my life. He was always approachable and knowledge about the options I had. I could reach him at any time I wish and he always made himself available (where appropriate). He was supportive and gave guidance on how to move forward in my court proceedings whilst remaining calm and ensuring I was calm and thought carefully with a level head.

TESTIMONIAL: Really pleased with the service I received from Nathalie Swanwick, she goes beyond and above whats expected to keep you informed of the progress of your case and to fight for the best outcome. Keeps in regular contact and does not charge for every minute she talks to you like some greedy unscrupulous solicitors that are only in it for the money. Knows the law well and has a no nonsense approach would definitely use again.


CLIENT: Beverley Sanderson
COMPANY/FIRM: Simpson Millar
TESTIMONIAL: Medical Negligence Claim I would like to extend my sincere thanks and gratitude on behalf of my family and I to David Thomas and Chantelle Copper; who took on my case which started in 2006. Over the years David and Chantelle have shown perseverance and worked extremely hard to bring my daughter’s case to court. They are both professional in their manner but also; naturally compassionate and understanding. During the court case both were extremely helpful; always explained the steps they’d be taking, time frames and consistently updating me on what stage we were at. They remained supportive throughout and guided me through the procedures. Although we did not have a successful result, I believe having David and Chantelle on our side helped to make this disheartening time more manageable. I will always value the words of encouragement which has made a positive impact at the end of many extremely stressful years. Once again; thank you both for your hard work, understanding and kindness towards us as a family. Chantelle I wish you all the best with completing your training; you’re going to make an amazing Solicitor. Beverley Sanderson & family

TESTIMONIAL: I cannot recommend Simpson Millar highly enough. Both before & during the lockdown, my solicitor Hayley & her assistant Jamie never stopped working, were always efficient, professional & patient. Every piece of correspondence I had with them was courteous & informative & they both worked so so hard on our behalf when buying our new house. If you are looking for someone to act on your behalf when purchasing a property, then the only option has to be Hayley & Jamie at Simpson Millar! Thank you both so very much.


CLIENT: Victoria
COMPANY/FIRM: Simpson Millar
TESTIMONIAL: Great firm Best team An unexpected court case was thrown at me and I had just over 24 hours to mobilise and find defence. I have spoken to 5 law firms and faith started to slip away, because everyone wanted to charge an exceptionally high rate for urgency and in the end just turned me down- because of the lack of time to prepare… When I lost all hope, a friend advised to get in touch with Simpson Millar, and I am so glad I did. I got through to Caroline and she had listened and understood exactly what I was going through and offered her help. I am incredibly grateful that she helped me to summarise my court statement and coordinate with the barrister as well as came down to London to represent me the following morning, all in such short space of time. This was my first, and hopefully last, appearance in court and it made a world of difference to have been represented by such kind and sophisticated team, all thanks to Caroline Hurst from Simpson Millar. Highly recommended Victoria

CLIENT: Craig Chapman
COMPANY/FIRM: Simpson Millar
TESTIMONIAL: Highly Recommended. Fantastic, Professional Service. Communication was excellent. I never felt that I didn’t know what stage of the process we were at. Contactability (if that’s a word) is also great. If I couldn’t get through to David he called me back within an acceptable timescale, you really do feel that as a client your business is valued. No matter what the fee is. I would also like to personally point out David Hession. From what should have been a simple agreement facilitation turned out to be an unnecessarily long winded negotiation. (Through the fault of the 3rd party and not Simpson Millar) But throughout it all, David was professional, offered sound advice and constantly followed up, which in turn got the desired result. I would have no problem recommending David and Simpson Millar.


CLIENT: Caroline Moss
COMPANY/FIRM: Simpson Millar
TESTIMONIAL: “I approached Simpson Millar at a really scary time. My ex had taken our child without my consent and was refusing to return her. I didn’t know what to do and I was worried that I might never get her back. David and his team acted quickly, and in less than a week we were in Court and I got my little girl back. Simpson Millar secured the outcome I wanted. Everything was done by phone and email, with no hassle. They also charge fixed fees, so I knew what I was going to be paying and what to budget for and didn’t need to worry about hidden costs. I can’t thank them enough and would recommend them to anyone needing family law advice.”

TESTIMONIAL: I chose this company /even though I live in the Midlands, from views on the internet, I am so glad i did. We went to a country where i picked something not very nice up! I spoke to Mr. James Blower, the man was a gentleman, treated me with kid gloves in respect of looking after me, I felt safe and sound throughout, if a question popped into my head, I would have no qualms about phoning him. Excellent ! I could not have been in better hands the condition was salmonella, so talking about it and describing things i thought may be embarrassing, but I think he had heard so many horror stories, that never once did I feel uncomfortable. Well done Mr. James Blower !
