“Mark’s a great listener who uses his knowledge to deliver just the advice needed, and nothing superfluous. I’d be confident in recommending my clients to work with him”.
“Mark did a great job for me. He was helpful and supportive throughout my separation and divorce, keeping me grounded and providing good advice – not easy when your client is a lawyer who thinks she may know better! Mark is a true professional and a safe pair of hands who gets the job done”.
“Mark saw me through a personally very difficult time when I got divorced. He was able to use his expert knowledge to help me make sensible decisions without letting my emotions get in the way. He also enabled me to regain access to my two boys, which is something I will always be thankful to him for. Sometime you have to pay for the best advice and in the long term the best advice, actually saves you time and money. So hire Mark and you wont regret it”.
“I will always be grateful for Mark’s level-headedness and encouragement to be child focussed in what was an emotional situation. Throughout the process I appreciated Mark’s ability to patiently explain often complex and combative language to me, giving me the confidence when appropriate to ensure I stood my ground. Whilst nothing is happy about family matters in court, I am happy to say that we did get a child focused outcome and I know this will certainly improve things for my child and me”. Ms SB January 2021
