I approached Simpson Millar to take on my divorce because they were recommended to me. I am so glad that I appointed them to act for me, At first I was really nervous as I had heard some horror stories about solicitors dragging issues out and costing the earth. I was glad to be proven wrong. I was really pleased with both the professionalism and understanding that was brought to my case. They made a really emotional and upsetting time much less painful than I had imagined and explained things to me in plain english. Since appointing them to act on my behalf during my divorce I have since contacted Simpson Millar to act on my behalf again in another matter. I would not hesitate in recommending them.

We would all like to thank Melanie Webb for her hard work with obtaining access rights to see our son & grandson. We felt that you took hold of the situation and got the right outcome and went beyond your duty as a solicitor to help everyone involved.

People say that going through divorce is one of the most difficult experiences a human has to be faced with. I didn't believe that and thought I was a pretty strong person...and I may be but nothing could prepare me for what was ahead of me. Without Melanie Webb, I am not so sure how my situation would look like now, not just financially, but emotionally. Melanie and all the team at Simpson Millar made my divorce proceedings smooth, they helped me feel strong and every visit to court was so much easier knowing that I had Melanie with me and on my side. I cannot recommend highly enough the service from Simpson Millar and Melanie.
