“Sarah represented me in family court with regards to complicated children’s matters involving incidents of abuse. She made sure that my children’s best interest were at the forefront of her mind and her priority was their well-being and prompt resolution of the conflict with the best possible outcome for the children involved. Sarah is very professional, yet approachable. Her communication skills are excellent. Her very calm yet confident presence made me feel like the matters of my very young children were in safe hands and in Court she was absolutely outstanding. She knew exactly what to say and when and how to put across our point so that it was received well by the judge. She is simply outstanding!“
“Sarah came recommended…a zoom call conducted prior to the hearing made it clear that Sarah had gone through reams of documentation and had an understanding of the situation. In court she was concise with excellent communication skills and asked few but penetrating questions. The judge turned the case around such that an order was granted against the applicant and the abuse allegations made against me were dismissed…the summary report she produced was detailed and my solicitor (who has been in the business for decades) said it was one of the best he had ever seen. I cannot thank Sarah enough.”
‘Sarah helped me achieve the most amazing result in Court. There was no way I could have done any of that without her hard work and full understanding, which made a huge difference to me. I am in awe of how professional and clever Sarah was in the courtroom. It was an absolute joy to listen to.’
