TESTIMONIALS

“Thank you so much for all your help in dealing with the divorce. It was made what was a very stressful time significantly easier. So huge thank you” 

“What an amazing outcome you got for me – I am so grateful for what you did.”

“Thank you so much for your all-round amazingness!”

“Divorce is tough! However, I was fortunate enough to be represented by Ms Rebecca Knight of WHFLP. I felt completely confident in her as my solicitor. From the moment we first met, Rebecca put me at ease, she was quick to grasp the issues I was facing – this made me, at such an emotionally charged and vulnerable time…feel safe. Her professionalism and legal expertise impressed me so much that subsequently I have recommended her to my friend who has become a new client. You need someone like Rebecca to be on your side if you are facing a divorce! My biggest compliment would be that I wouldn’t want her to be representing my exH!!”
