"The service from Laura throughout the entire process of my divorce was exemplary. I received excellent advice and support every step of the way and ultimately she achieved the result I wanted. Her attention to detail is exceptional and she is calm and highly professional. Do not however underestimate Laura; she is a tough negotiator when required.
