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

On behalf of myself and the girls, thank you. We are so happy and very grateful with this incredible outcome on all issues”

“I sought the services of Mr Jackson for my final Child Arrangements hearing via the Direct Access Scheme and found his representation to be invaluable. His professionalism and knowledge of the court is without question. From the outset, Mr Jackson demonstrated a solid understanding of the key issues surrounding the case and provided me with sound advice and clarity of direction that ultimately facilitated a successful outcome of equal, shared-care. I found his direct and honest approach to be unambiguous and reassuring, helping me to make some sense of; and; to take some stress out of the process. In short, his advice was right on the mark. I would wholeheartedly recommend Mr Jackson’s services for anybody experiencing the child arrangements process.”
