I received a brilliant service from Helen Cort. She is so professional. A real asset to your firm.
I have experienced a long drawn out divorce and I was let down by my previous solicitor at the last minute. Helen Cort was exceptional and despite last minute notice, served my case very well. Thank you very much.
One source notes “Their approach to cases and the service they offer is absolutely first class,” while another interviewee states that Paris Smith is the “go-to for financial remedies“.
