This service was wonderful. My lawyer answered all my questions thoroughly and was very knowledgeable. Everything about a divorce is stressful so it was so good to get armed with information. I can now sleep at night (ha ha). Thanks so much !! Recommend this hour long consultation for anyone going through a divorce so you know where you stand.

Very positive. I was really impressed by how the different jurisdictions were explained to me. One was a Civil matter and the other, the Family Court. Until the explanation I was confused and that is what was causing me distress. I am relieved to understand the difference and that is because it was explained to me in a way that I could understand. Well Worth the time and money for that peace of mind. Impressed with the follow up too. Many thanks.
