Team member: Lisa Burton-Durham

Thank you Lisa for all your help, advice and support through the long and (at times) painful journey of my divorce and it's completion with the sale of the house.

It was an experience and without your constant support, both professionally and emotionally, it would have been an even more difficult time, and for that I thank you immensely.

Team member: Lisa Burton-Durham

It is not easy sometimes to put exact thoughts or sentiments into words, but more than words can describe I appreciate your care, your professionalism and the way you have represented me so perfectly throughout my case.  It has been challenging times and I know that there is still so much to do, and I know that I will have to find a way to build the right environment for my children, and somehow to put my life back together, but regardless of what the future may bring I know I wouldn't have felt as strong and positive as I do now if it wasn't for your efforts and your kind support.

Team member: Gemma Hope

Thanks so much Hazel, for all of your help and your calm advice throughout.

Team member: Hazel Manktelow

Great work! Many thanks for all your help, advice and for caring.

Team member: Lauren Guy

Gemma was really excellent.  I felt that she was supporting me, at the same time I did not feel as though she was doing this blindly, but was adding objective insights about what was appropriate or not.

Team member: Gemma Hope

Many thanks for your help with this process, we couldn't have achieved this without you.

Team member: Gemma Hope

Thank you so much for your help over the last two years.  You've been such a huge help and always giving calm considered and helpful advice.  I'm obviously hugely relieved with the order that has been given. It's not enough to convey quite what it means to us but I don't know what else to say but thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Team member: Lauren Guy

Team member: Sarah Jelly

Thanks again Sarah for helping in a very difficult situation.  There were definitely times I despaired but after speaking with you I always felt better.  My sons began to say "Mom, talk to Sarah".

Team member: Sarah Jelly

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all the support and advice you have given me over this distressing time.  I know its your job, but I felt that you were giving honest clear advice, listened to my ranting, and guided me in the right direction when I needed it most.  I would not be in the position I am in now, without your guiding hand.

Team member: Lisa Burton-Durham

Thanks for all your help and advice - you have been very supportive and eagle-eyed throughout.

Team member: Gemma Garrett

Dear Sarah.  Many thanks for all your hard work last year.  The divorce is in process now and we have reached a financial agreement, which would have been even extraordinarily difficult without your help in mediation.  All very best wishes and thanks again.

Team member: Sarah Jelly

Team member: Lisa Burton-Durham

I feel so blessed our paths crossed and that you are there guiding me through, and helping me to navigate this really bumpy patch in life.

Team member: Gemma Hope

It was an enormous relief and now weight off my shoulders, to have reached a conclusion.  Thanks to yourself, Robert, Karen and Seamus' brilliance in Court, you achieved a clean break and with that, I can now start to plan my future and move on without the worry or stress of being financially attached.

I would like to sincerely thank you all for your tremendous efforts, professionalism and calming influence when things got a little tough for me along the way.

Now it's all about finding and building a new home and place of safety and comfort for the children when they are with me.  I look forward to that fresh start with great enthusiasm.

Team member: Gemma Hope

Team member: Gemma Hope

I cannot thank you enough for your support over the last few years.  It has been a prolonged and distressing process, but you kept me sane in the darkest periods, and I am very grateful for your no-nonsense but compassionate approach, which made it all a bit easier to cope with.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to anyone.  Although I wouldn't wish the situation on my worst enemy, you help make it less traumatic.

Team member: Lisa Burton-Durham

I am SO pleased to get your email this morning as I really feel you are able to grasp the implications of my situation. It's obvious that you are really on the case and I am literally weeping with relief!

Team member: Sarah Jelly

Robert, the support from you and your colleagues was fantastic.

Team member: Robert Williams

Dear Lisa.  I just wanted to say thank you for yesterday.  I know it is still early days, but I came away feeling much reassured that the process holds the possibility of delivering a mutually satisfactory outcome.  I think that this owes much to the commitment, belief and skill that both you and Wendy bring as guardians and managers of the process.  So, thank you.

Team member: Lisa Burton-Durham

Dear Alan.  You are the most caring, sensible, wise and intelligent man I know.  I consider having you worked on my case and for my family at times, one of the best decisions I've made in my life.  Your team have always been consistent, happy and helpful.  You and the team so deserve success.

Team member: Alan Larkin

Thank you so much for your help and advice, the whole experience has helped me and my family hugely, more than you could ever imagine.

Team member: Alan Larkin

Thank you so much for being so helpful in our meeting.  This feels like the most over-whelming process to go through but your kind, gentle and clear approach will, I feel, make it more bearable.

Team member: Gemma Hope

I would like to say a huge thank you for all the helpful advice and putting everything together at such short notice.  It is reassuring that I know I have legal support.  Once again, a massive 'thank you' for your service.

Team member: Hazel Manktelow

Dear Sarah.  Thank you so much for all your help and support with this over the last few months - months I hope to never have to repeat but months that were made all the easier with your wisdom, support and help.  With many thanks and much gratitude.

Team member: Sarah Jelly

Sarah, many thanks indeed for your help and guidance during this period.  Thank you for your kind words, I hope this concludes everything, but of course, should anything else crop up, I will indeed be in touch.

I'm very grateful that you've assisted in making the process as straight forward as possible.

Team member: Sarah Jelly

THANK YOU!!! and thank you for your explanations!! and Patience and EVERYTHING ABOUT YOU!! I am definitely feeling elated and what's that word....RELIEVED!!!

 

Dear Gemma, I just wanted to thank you properly for your support and constant kindness during the divorce process. You have been a tower of strength, totally professional and exceptionally conscientious, which has just given me huge reassurance and made the whole process much easier to cope with.  It really has been exceptionally caring and generous of you to have advised me over these past weeks and to have continued helping me so much.

You are a wonderful person and as I have said to everyone an outstanding solicitor. You will never know what a huge difference you have made!

 

Team member: Gemma Garrett

Dear Sarah, thank you so much for the update and all your help and support.  You've kept me grounded throughout and that, in itself, has been invaluable.

 

 

Team member: Sarah Jelly

Chris, during what has been a pretty trying process for us, we have been very impressed with your approach, counsel and overall professionalism.

Thanks again for all your help and support.

 

 

Team member: Chris Maulkin

Sarah I do want to thank you.  I was apprehensive about coming to see you and to be honest, the whole process! You calmed my fears and I now feel this is achievable, albeit step by step.  Thank you for your help, it really is appreciated.

Team member: Sarah Jelly

In the meantime, I would like to thank you for all your help and efforts on my behalf – I honestly don’t think we would have been where we are without it!

 

Team member: Alan Larkin

I'm so excited that the truth is emerging, my God Alan, thank your for being so, so, so, 'Dog with a bone ' person on my case.  More to the point thank you for being more than... trusting, guiding, PATIENT, tolerant, funny, kept me from of hanging myself on occasions. At the end of the phone when needed with a legal issue/advise for all my family though out the years.  I knew I was going into an area out of my total understanding. I put all my trust in you. You've never let me down, never! P.S. The whole team are included, I'm fully aware how you support each other.

Team member: Alan Larkin

Robert, you are very kind. I appreciate it very much. Thank you for making one of the most difficult times of my life a little easier. You are a star :)!

Team member: Robert Williams

Thanks Lisa, very impressed with all you've done through this process. Thank you for everything!

Team member: Lisa Burton-Durham

Lisa, I just want to say a quick thank you for all your help regarding my case. From the very beginning when I first came to discuss my situation with you, you were very open, kind and sensitive towards my situation, and made me feel totally relaxed and less nervous about discussing it with someone.

You have always acted very quickly on any matters that needed attention. In my case, pointing us in the correct direction of mediation really helped to avoid costly court fees and luckily we did manage to sort our arrangements out in a more amicable way through mediation.

I would thoroughly recommend you to any of my personal friends or indeed their colleagues if they needed to sort of family legal issues. Thank you.

Team member: Lisa Burton-Durham

Having to go through a divorce at a young age and after a short marriage was a daunting experience to face. The Family Law Partners Team in particular Lisa Burton-Durham who was dealing with my case and Alan Larkin were all so friendly and approachable which helped me through the whole process.

Lisa had a great way of communicating; she was very friendly which put me at ease immediately. Not only were they great legal representation, they would keep me fully informed, ensured I understood each step and were always available for support and advice during this difficult period.

My divorce has now been finalised and assets dealt with and I could not be happier with their services, so as well saying a huge thank you in particular to Lisa Burton-Durham for helping me through each step I would also like to take this opportunity to strongly recommend their services to anyone that is going through something similar. It’s amazing how much difference it can make to the whole recovery process in a divorce to have the emotional support from the legal team, legal aspects clearly explained and support each step of the way.

Team member: Lisa Burton-Durham

I just wanted to send a quick note of thanks to you and your team at Family Law Partners. Words cannot express my gratitude for your help navigating my divorce. I could not have managed without you. Thank you again for your patience and kindness during such a difficult time in my life.

Team member: Lisa Burton-Durham

Thank you Lisa for your support, for your patience and for being strong when I was not. Perhaps all this will teach me to be stronger in life for myself. Thank you also for not being judgmental. Thank you for encouraging me to voice my fears. A big step forward. It is easy for me to be strong for others and not so easy for myself. Thank you very much.
