What they say about Ginny

I would like to thank you as I was delighted by your professionalism and advice. I felt you supported me throughout my ordeal. I appreciated your time and honesty at times when I felt emotionally distraught. I was relieved you achieved the level of settlement for me you advised me I would get right form the start!” Mrs. G

“I would not have a problem referring anyone I know to Ginny as I feel without doubt she has your back!” Mr T

When my relationship ended I was terrified the children and I would not manage financially and were not entitled to anything. You were able to navigate me through a complex application for financial support for my children. Its an enormous relief to know they have financial security now. Thank you, Ginny for doing a great job.  The idea of going to court was petrifying for me but I felt you knew this and did everything you could to support me.” Miss R

I came to Ginny when I felt my case was not going in the right direction. She quickly got on top of things and changed the course completely so that we were able to avoid the High Court and we settled. I think Ginny makes an exceptional negotiator. Mr A

What impressed me the most was that Ginny was cost sensitive to my case. I found that refreshing. Its not easy feeling satisfied when ultimately this has been the worst period in my life. That was to down to Ginny’s hard work. I would describe her best attribute ‘client focused’ and I would score it 10/10! Ms. S
