Holly demonstrated an excellent understanding of my daughter’s complex needs and given the sensitive nature of the hearing, I felt in safe hands represented in family court. She has a methodical and conciliatory approach that enabled the case to move forward with a child contact matter where there had been no progress previously.

I am very happy and would highly recommend using Mr Fox at Becket Chambers. The clerks are very efficient keeping you updated and responding very quickly to emails. Mr Fox explains everything you need to know clearly and spends time doing this.

I am using Mr Fox to represent me in a small claims court.

Ms A Instructing Christian Fox through the Direct Access Scheme – February 2022

Ms M Instructing Clive Styles through the Direct Access Scheme – November 2021

I just wanted to send a quick message to say thank you for all your help and your clerks during this process. I couldn’t have done it without you

Mr A Instructing Clive Styles through the Direct Access Scheme – October 2021

From zero experience with proceedings of any kind, I’ve gone to actually gaining custody of my son!

I really appreciate that result which I didn’t even think was possible. You kept me grounded about the low likelihood of that success but also really focussed my mind about what I wanted out of the Court process.

I just wanted to say thanks again. You represented me impeccably.

Mr M Instructing Louisa Adamson through the Direct Access Scheme – September 2021

Ms Andrews has supported me through a very long and difficult court process. Ms Andrews always put me at ease during meetings, on the phone and in court.  She is supportive, honest and her advice always centred around the best for my child. Ms Andrews was sensitive to my case and really took the time to understand my family situation, she went above and beyond. She was always clear with her advice and always took the time to answer any questions and explain the court process.

I couldn’t of got through the process without her! I would highly recommend her services.

During the process I also had regular contact with Ms Andrew’s clerk Arron Smith, I always found Arron very efficient and always willing to help. He was very quick with his responses and nothing was too much trouble. This made the very stressful court process easier. I can’t thank them enough!

Ms T instructing Sophie Gray through the Direct Access Scheme – June 2021

I instructed Kevin for my final hearing. There were lots of issues and some new issues. It seem impossible to cover all the issues in one day. Kevin was able to understand my case, give child friendly advise and was able to separate real issues from those that don’t matter. I got a satisfactory out which will bring long term stability for my Son. Thank you Kevin

“I just want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything. You have been there for Mum and I and it has meant the world.”

Ms K Instructing Sandria Murkin through DPA scheme – April 18

“For what was the most stressful period of my life, Mr Styles was able to provide a reassuring presence.and I always believed he would achieve the best outcome for my family.  The case involved a particularly belligerent litigant in person, yet he was handled firmly, but fairly.

Under the direct access scheme, dealing with the court paperwork can still be quite onerous, but Mr Styles was on hand  to explain things to me, which saved me the additional costs of using a solicitor.  English is not my first language, but Mr Styles was very clear in his discussions with me.

I always felt that Mr Styles was in control of the situation no matter how difficult the other party tried to make it. He managed my expectations throughout, and often came up with pragmatic and workable solutions, including saving further costs by persuading the Judge to cancel the second day of the final hearing.

Now that I have come out the other side of the process, I am glad that I was your client.

I would be happy to recommend you and your firm to handle family proceedings.”

Ms S Instructing Clive Styles – April 2018

“Thank you so much for your help in getting this all agreed today.

I appreciated your views, advice and suggestions-they helped to take the stress out of this as it is emotional.”

Ms R Instructing Louisa Adamson through DPA scheme – March 18
