First Class


Matter Type: Divorce

Working with Linda walker made a very difficult emotive set of circumstances so much easier. Linda was absolutely brilliant from day one, she showed compassion and truly listened while giving the best advice in a way I could understand it! I had complete trust in her advice and she got me the result I had hoped for. If you are looking for a family lawyer I honestly couldn’t rate her high enough. Thank you !

Very impressed with the service we received. Extremely professional, helpful, friendly and respectful. Shelley, who we dealt with, reassured throughout, always had time for us and never made us feel we were one of many. Very personal care. Thanks
