‘A great team that always respond on time with the right advice and help.’

‘Exemplary. I can’t praise Lauren McLaughlin enough for helping me to successfully appeal my unlawful dismissal and subsequently achieve a fair settlement. Her ability to carefully analyse the specific situation, offer clear and pragmatic advice, whilst also considering her client’s financial situation at such a difficult time, clearly demonstrates her high levels of personal and professional integrity. Lauren is always reliable, prompt with her responses (no matter how busy she might be) and offers clear insight when guiding you through the process. My experience of working with Lauren and Curzon Green has been absolutely first class and I have no hesitation in recommending her and them in the highest terms.’

‘Rob Green sees straight to the heart of the matter.’

‘I have always found the team to be well-organised, very competent in the advice, and with excellent client care. Jeff Thomas has a wealth of experience, upon which he draws to give practical and astute advice‘.

‘It is a very warm family environment with highly skilled competent staff that make you feel at ease instantly. Two main and great members of the team are Rob Green and Jeff Thomas, I have dealt with both and both are extremely professional and put you at ease‘.

I have principally been working with Jeff Thomas.  I found his straightforward no-nonsense approach refreshing and very helpful in managing my expectations as I progressed through an acrimonious divorce process. He was extremely helpful in providing a down-to-earth and simple explanation of the whole process. He provided not only professional guidance but also was always there, available, to support, listen and calm me down when my own fears and anxieties took over‘.

‘Kelly Ann Welsh has been outstanding, Kelly Ann was on the ball, the best quality for me was her compassion towards my situation, while explaining and giving me the necessary choices. I had every confidence in her’.

‘Unlike most firms, Curzon Green can provide an exceptional service to clients whether they have a high net worth dispute or a modest value case. In both instances, the firm provides excellence and strives for cost efficiency. Curzon Green also sets itself apart by having equally strong children and financial remedies advice. The firm prioritises the client’s needs and is sensitive to different client’s requirements. Kelly-Ann Welsh has a breadth and depth of experience that leave her clients in a uniquely strong position. Kelly is not just a fantastic lawyer but a true ‘people person’. Kelly is relentless in achieving fantastic outcomes for each of her clients’.

‘A diverse, experienced, friendly team that speaks human language to assist clients in a very difficult and emotional time, the lawyers work together as a strong team putting all their experiences together to assist me. They also have a large network of barristers with specific knowledge to suit every client. Umar Mirza is my legend, Hero and an outstanding individual that stood by me through a very difficult 3 years divorce. He is extremely intelligent and remembers every detail that puts the opposition to shame. Kelly-Ann was also a great help‘.

I have been working very closely with Mr Umar Mirza. He has great knowledge and goes above and beyond for his clients. He is representing me in my child’s matter and I have noticed that he always has the child’s best interests. Billing is always precise and I have never been rushed to make a payment. He works with a very experienced team. Umar has great knowledge on child proceedings and has always given me the right advice to move forward. He has excellent communication skills‘.

‘My solicitor was Jeff Thomas he knew I had a complex case and he adapted to all my struggles really well and advised me best to my situation. He was contactable and came back to me extremely quickly. I would recommend him 100 percent‘.
