“As an army veteran I’ve struggled with adapting to civilian life in which the team has been totally empathetic and understanding. I wasn’t sure if I was strong enough to go through with my divorce but the team have taken a massive burden from the emotional weight. Their empathy and understanding was nothing short of impeccable. I’m forever grateful for all the hard work on my behalf. I’m now moving on with my life free and at an understanding that there are people out here that truly understand the struggle of soldiers after spending most of our adult lives in war torn environments. Thank you again to Denise and all the team”


“I really couldn’t have wished for a better solicitor and I would highly recommend Denise if anyone I know unfortunately finds themselves in the same position as me”


“Denise’s work and knowledge throughout my case has been exceptional and she has been my source of strength”
