What Others Say

Gail has worked on my case for almost five years. Given that we have worked together for so long would indicate that my case is far from standard. However, despite the complexity, Gail has been steadfast in her loyalty and commitment. When you work with Gail, you need to accept that she will tell you how it is. This can be sometimes hard but in doing so, Gail will lay out your options and advise you accordingly. Putting it simply, I couldn't have got through this period of my life without Gail's guidance. She works hard on your behalf and when you enter court, you can be rest assured she will do all she can to defend your position. For anyone who is experiencing domestic abuse - I would highly recommend Gail. She remains professional at all times but is also incredibly caring and compassionate.


From my own experience, you have been there to help with anything I did not understand; you made it so easy by seeing me through it all by phone or email. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have not had any face to face contact, but you made me feel reassured that I was in good hands by keeping me up to date with all that you were doing.
