Thoughtful, knowledgable and caring solicitor

My sister and I found Sharps Family Law for my mum as she does not speak English fluently. We had an initial meeting with Richard on the phone who explained the cost clearly to us and set us for a meeting with Laura. We had a great experience with her being my mum's solicitor. From the first time we met up with her to the final stages, Laura was caring, thoughtful and understanding. She made this difficult experience for my mum easier. It has made a huge difference having solicitors who were always happy to explain things to us, responded promptly and never pushed my mum to do anything she did not want to do. Laura was also very calm as well which was important in this process for us. We definitely recommend having Laura as your solicitor and using Sharps Family Law.

Divorce and separation

Laura has been assisting on my matters of divorce, financial settlement and childcare arrangements.
She has been professional, supportive and efficient.
Helping me to deal with matters that felt totally overwhelming at times in a way that allowed me to feel in control.
If you are in an unfortunate position to need family law advice then I would recommend Laura at sharp family law.

Got the job done

I used Sharp Family Law for a divorce. Overall I would say did a good job. Just be careful with email exchanges as one sentence responses will come at a cost. Also not every invoice came with a breakdown of what had been charged. This was OK upfront but when it got to the finer detail of working on the documentation etc. the breakdown would have been nice, as if I would have seen the amount I was being charged for emails I would have been more careful with the amount of back and forth.

I feel like it got to the point where every penny was being milked but I guess that's the way it works.

Would I recommend, probably, but now I know how it works I would reach out to other law firms to check their fee structure.

Divorce

Initially from the start I was nervous about starting my process of my divorce,but Richard was extremely supportive and understanding .
Richard knew what steps to take me forward and with his knowledge and experience we got eventually to our outcome.
Richard and his team are the utmost professionals and I would most definitely recommend Richard Sharp Family Law to anyone that may be looking forward to changing their life.

Working with Richard

I am glad to say that getting divorced is something I shall only do once as I shall not remarry. Given that it has been a once in a lifetime experience, I feel blessed that I found Richard. Not understanding the intricacies of divorce or tax, Richard had my back and for that he was worth his weight in gold. He is thorough, professional and kind. Despite the sad nature of divorce, I actually enjoyed my conversations with Richard although I am relieved it is now all behind me. Thank you.

All round excellence

Richard Sharp and his team helped us to navigate a separation with sympathy and ease. I would thoroughly recommend the one solicitor approach to minimise the stress of what could be a thoroughly unpleasant experience.

Excellent support fro Victoria Barnett

Ms Victoria Barnett has been excellent at providing me with the legal and emotional support I needed to go through, first, the separation and later the divorce process. During this period I felt that I was working with someone who not only understood me and protected my interests but also showed me genuine empathy and was willing to give me sound advice beyond my actual case. At the end all was conducted professionally and with attention to detail. Against this background I would wholeheartedly recommend Ms Victoria Barnett.
