I was devastated when I found my ex partner had left with my child...Howells were professional throughout their staff gave the best guidance and advice.

Liz forrest was above and beyond bless her, she was very practical in her advice and thorough in her work.

You could tell she and her team were so passionate and empathetic and on your side and helped throughout the process.

The barrister was excellent she did exactly as she was instructed and gave it her all she gave me great advice and didn't beat around the bush - Thanks Julie Richardson 👍?

Even after the final hearing the solicitors remained in touch to make sure everything is OK and if there's any further advice needed.

Its not like oh yes the case is over goodbye you get some after care too.

I cannot praise the Howells more.

Any child or family problem cases should come here they are fantastic highly recommended their service is above excellent!

Thank yo
