My recent divorce was handled by Curtis Wray. He was excellent throughout and very professional and supportive. He provided me with sound advice during a very stressful and difficult period. Curtis constantly kept me updated. I never had to chase him on any issues. I would thoroughly recommend Curtis personally and Girlings Solicitors. Mr P Collins

All procedures made very clear and swift service from start to finish. Mrs Everest

We were able to reach an amicable arrangement with my now ex-husband and achieved an excellent settlement for myself and my children. The final fee was within the budget Sarah set out in our first meeting and within the expected time trajectory. I would recommend her unreservedly to friends and family. F.R

I really appreciated Sarah Finnis' help with my divorce. I felt that she took me under her wing at a very difficult time. Sarah was supportive and practical throughout, focusing on maintaining co-operative and courteous relations with my husband and his legal team, but also well able to fight my corner when I needed her to. F.R
