I would like to thank Emma Hopkins-Jones from the Leeds office for all her professional help and advice during my recent divorce proceedings. I was pleased with the service I received which helped to bring my divorce to a satisfactory conclusion, in line with my instructions to Emma. I would not hesitate to recommend Simpson Millar LLP to my colleagues and friends in the future.

I’ve thoroughly enjoyed working with Emma Hopkins-Jones at Simpson Millar. From the first day we spoke over the phone about what legal advice and support I would need, she has been superb. I’ve really appreciated the way that she is always at the end of a phone or email, and that she’s been aware that in my busy professional life, I can’t do many face-to-face meetings. Emma has organised the whole process of my separation and divorce seamlessly over the last two and a half years and I’ve been really grateful for her objective and supportive presence. Emma has made a very painful and sad period of my life as positive and as straight-forward as possible. She’s also signposted me to other colleagues in her firm to support me with other professional advice, such as changing my Will. Overall, Emma and her team have been fantastic. I know that if I ever needed family law support in the future, Emma would be the only one I’d call.

Over the past two years I have been going through a very complicated and stressful divorce. Emma Hopkins-Jones dealt with every aspect of my case extremely professionally and had fantastic knowledge of every issue I faced. This included the actual divorce and financial proceedings, plus the complications of various relationships and keeping my children away from any such pressures. The whole team at Simpson Millar and other colleagues in mediation gave me excellent professional advice. I was kept informed at every stage and as I have a busy career myself, I found the support and communication to be very helpful. I would like to thank Emma for everything she has done throughout the whole process and would recommend her services to anyone.
