I’ve worked with Sophie for almost 3 years on the most complex and delicate matter. My child and her future. For the first part I was incredibly unwell and was truly unable to make any rational decisions so to have someone like Sophie and her team making sure I made all the right decisions at the time for the welfare of my child was absolutely imperative. When things took an unimaginable and unexpected turn for the worse I contacted Sophie to help me and from that very first call she put my mind at ease and explained the steps we would need to take. Throughout this entire process, I’ve not trusted anyone more and every single step has been managed and thought out to produce the desired outcome. Nothing was rushed and she consistently kept me going by being open, honest and reassuring that every decision made was the right one at the time, even when I was eager to make other ones. Without Sophie and her team behind me I really don’t know what I would have done, I’m always met with a friendly voice and never once did I feel like I wasn’t heard or my concerns were not dealt with. I can’t express my gratitude enough to Sophie she’s one of the most hard-working, kindest humans I’ve ever encountered and I can honestly say if I ever had to recommend a lawyer in this field to anyone it would be her! Three years of non-stop hard work and we achieved the result we wanted. She never rushed any of it and it’s because of that and her careful advice that I am now reunited with my child and able to live the life I always wanted and worked so hard for.
I can't thank you enough for all your support and encouragement and making it possible for us to have our son in our lives. Thank you Sophie, your advice and support was so valued as was the outcome
