CLIENT: Children matter client
COMPANY/FIRM: Dawson Cornwell
TESTIMONIAL: Anne-Marie Hutchinson is an amazing lawyer and without her there is no way we would have been able to get our boys back. She demonstrated that her heart was in her work and was so responsive to not only our every legal concern, but went way beyond and looked out for us while we were in the UK.  We highly, highly recommend both Anne-Marie and James Netto.  Anne-Marie is formidable, smart, experienced and tenacious, attentive and caring.  She guided us to make all the right moves and kept us from allowing the emotion of the situation from clouding our judgment.

CLIENT: Pro bono client
COMPANY/FIRM: Dawson Cornwell
TESTIMONIAL: I have been overwhelmed by the legal expertise and kindness shown by the staff of Dawson Cornwell, who have worked tirelessly for my daughter for over six years in a protracted, complex cross border child abduction and divorce case.

They supported my MP in a national media and political campaign, involving intervention from the Deputy Prime Minister and the unusual step of foreign government intervention in private family law proceedings.
They provide ongoing legal assistance with strategic awareness, experience, attention to detail and a strong work ethic.

CLIENT: Matrimonial client
COMPANY/FIRM: Dawson Cornwell
TESTIMONIAL: Dawson Cornwell represented me on my recent divorce. While it was an extremely difficult and trying period for me personally, I felt comfortable and re-assured that my case was in professional and capable hands. They were extremely empathetic and approachable while being extremely professional, providing well-researched and sound advice at each point of the process. For a layman, completely unaware of the legal process, everyone at Dawson Cornwell was patient and ensured I understood the legal approach at each stage.
I have come out of a very rough process with nothing but gratitude to the firm - personally and professionally.

CLIENT: Surrogacy client
COMPANY/FIRM: Dawson Cornwell
TESTIMONIAL: We just wanted to say a massive thank you for looking after us today and for our entire surrogacy journey. We really couldn't have done it without you. Thank you for everything you have done.

CLIENT: Child abduction client
COMPANY/FIRM: Dawson Cornwell
TESTIMONIAL: The use of a Family Law Firm, by definition, represents a difficult time for any individual. The level of service & support I received from Dawson Cornwell, both professionally & personally, should be described as exceptional. The efficiency with which Dawson Cornwell filed action under the Hague Convention highlighted their ability & empathy, ultimately leading to a swift & justified conclusion. The seamless work carried out by a collaboration of junior & senior staff alongside my Attorney in the US demonstrates their commitment to ensuring they maintain the highest calibre of staff.

CLIENT: Matrimonial client
COMPANY/FIRM: Dawson Cornwell
TESTIMONIAL: I instructed Lisette Dupré in respect of my divorce and financial remedy proceedings. I found Lisette to be highly professional and very good counsel. Lisette was sensitive to my situation and provided the perfect blend of expertise and personal support. She provided clear advice which helped me enormously when I needed to make key decisions, and she ensured that I fully understood each step of the process. Lisette was easy to get hold of (whether I was in the UK or abroad) and dealt with matters efficiently and effectively. I found Lisette thorough in her preparation and research, and proactive.
