I had the pleasure of working with Jeremy for 6 months and would not have had the results I did if it wasn’t for them. If ever you need brilliant, hands on, no nonsense, straight forward, honest and up front lawyer then Jeremy is your man. He has a great understanding of the emotional effects the process takes on every individual and shows sincerity towards your situation. He gets the job done and keeps you in the loop every step of the way. To me personally having to deal with the Family Court is stressful in itself to say the least, but he makes you feel at ease as you are properly informed of all stages of the process as you go along. At the end of the day, you get what you pay for and what you want is results. Absolutely worth giving him a call. Thank you Jeremy!!!
