What our happy clients say

  • I am a lawyer myself and have known Chris well for 4 years. Happily I haven’t had to use his services and I although don’t do family law I know enough to know that he knows his stuff as an accredited specialist in Family law and would assertively fight for his client’s rights in the hard but fair way I observe him on the tennis court. I’d recommend him highly.
