Financial settlement and divorce

I would like to thank Liz Cookson and Toni Gladstone, who have always been extremely professional and polite. At a really anxious time, everything was explained fully, both Liz and Toni were very understanding. I felt they made an effort, for a fair outcome in the settlement. They always replied to any phone calls or emails straight away and I was put at ease immediately. They have been very informative and helpful I can't thank them enough for their support. Highly recommended during this complicated process. Thank you.
