Client Feedback

It is always nice to receive good client feedback.

Here is some recent feedback we have received about Karen:

Many thanks for your final letter and cheque, and a big thank you for the lovely card you included with it, so thoughtful.

I appreciate your kindness and am truly grateful I found you to represent me during this challenging time in mine and xxxx’s life. without your help and advice I don’t think I’d be in this position now and I thank you once again..

Things are settled now and I feel at peace with the whole situation, (former partner) and I are managing to communicate better.

Anyway life goes on.. xxxx and I are happy and that’s all that matters.

Wishing you all the best…

(And a very big bunch of flowers was also received by Karen from the same client)

Another client commented:

Karen dealt with difficult conversations and offered constructive advice in a way which meant it was all much easier than it could have been with a less sympathetic person. Everything was clearly explained…

Karen’s approach

Karen is a committed member of Resolution.

Karen explains her approach as follows:

I chose family law as my specialism because I felt that I could help people during what can be a very stressful time.

I enjoy being able to assist individuals during difficult periods in their lives and consider myself to be a kind, considerate and approachable advocate.    My main aim is obviously always to achieve the best possible result for my clients and I always encourage my clients to try to agree matters in as non-confrontational way as possible.  However, when that is not achievable, I am able to ‘step up to the mark’ and argue my clients cause when necessary.

I am a member of Resolution and Devon and Somerset Law Society.

We hope that using these styles will assist potential clients to compare the breadth of experience in our team, in comparison to other legal practices.
