I have always found Amelia to be extremely reliable and consistent. She has an approachable and friendly mannerism with clients, and she is responsive to queries and always provides very thorough attendance notes promptly following a hearing. This makes things infinitely easier for me as the instructing solicitor. I therefore have no hesitation in instructing Amelia on all family matters.
