“I would like to thank you for the professional yet sensitive and sympathetic way in which you have handled my case and advised me. You have helped me through a very difficult period and it is much appreciated.”

“Claire is an intelligent and perceptive lady. She was able bring the case to a conclusion with the minimum of cost and distress to myself. She acts with integrity, tact and diplomacy, but also with strength.”

“I contacted three other solicitors before Claire who wouldn’t/couldn’t help as my problem was not straight-forward but Claire talked it through with me and gave me lots of her valuable time. Claire is very professional and I would definitely recommend her – she comes across as a very caring person who you would trust to help you.”

“Claire provided pragmatic, commercial and realistic advice – all delivered in a personable way. I don’t like surprises and wanted to be fully appraised of the likely twists and turns and Claire met my expectations in all areas. The end result was a settlement that was fair and minimal money wasted on arguing.”

“I’m a very happy lady and I can’t wait to start my life again. You have been amazing.”

“When I first came to you I was unsure how I was going to get through this but you allowed me to do that at my own pace. There are no words to express how grateful I am to be in such a strong financial position. You are a very special lady Claire and I only hope you can help others the way you have helped me.”

“I wish to say a sincere thanks for everything you have done in securing me access to and with my child. I was so tremendously relieved yesterday as I had expected the worst possible outcome and I think you guys engineered a very good outcome.”

“The Pitmans team are professional, well informed and calm under pressure. They take a balanced and realistic approach, with the welfare and future stability of the family at the centre.”
