The separation from my husband was an emotional and arduous journey at times but I will always be grateful for the care, kindness and information received from Jeremy and his team.
I knew nothing of Jeremy until I randomly heard him on the radio. What caught my attention was his willingness to provide practical advice, and to help ordinary people find their way through those often daunting legal processes. When I contacted Jeremy, he proved to be approachable, obliging, and happy to offer options for dealing with the matter at hand.
Jeremy had a very clear handle on my case before the end of our first conversation. He soon helped me exit the relationship with equal amounts of empathy and legal advice.

I’m extremely grateful to Jeremy and team for making an emotionally painful separation as painless as possible, and look forward to a positive outcome.
