What they say about Mark

“Mark was supportive and empathetic throughout my divorce and took the time to listen and understand my concerns. He was responsive to all my emails and phone calls which gave me peace of mind during times of great stress and anxiety. With his wealth of knowledge and experience he dealt with the other side professionally and succinctly and achieved the result I wanted. I could not have got through the process without Mark’s support and understanding.” AB

“Thanks, Mark. I couldn’t have got through this without your expert guidance and humour! CK

Mark Goldstein represented me in my divorce case over the past year and a half. As an Italian citizen dealing with the British courts I required an attorney I could rely on completely. Mark was warm and personable and patient in walking me through the various steps required. He has a fine legal mind and is honest, hardworking and was consistently well prepared and innovative in his legal preparations. The outcome was very satisfactory to me and Mark ensured that the ultimate experience was, while painful, over quickly.” MD

From my first meeting with Mark Goldstein he put me at ease, and was very warm and friendly. Throughout the whole process with him nothing was too much trouble, everything was explained in detail making it all very easy to follow and understand. Mark was always checking back with me to let me know the progress on the case and chasing anything that needed chasing. I cannot recommend him enough; he is highly skilled and extremely professional. It was the most amazing personal service from beginning to end. Thank you, Mark.” TL

I would recommend Mark Goldstein to anyone that asked as I found the process so much easier to deal than I thought it would be. Mark was very helpful and the outcome was super. He responded to any communication and always answered all my questions.” AB

I can’t thank Mr Goldstein and all of his team enough for the amazing outcome and service I received throughout my divorce. Mark is direct and compassionate, he dealt with every aspect throughout the whole process. Thank you Mark, I’m in a much better place now all thanks to you.” EG

I could not have wished for a better team representing me. If I call you my Henry and Bergkamp you will know there is no higher accolade! But joking aside, the team work of yourself, Divya and of course Gill has been first class. It feels very weird that I can start to plan again but that’s what I intend to do.” AW

“Mark Goldstein from Valemus Law has been my solicitor throughout my recent and lengthy divorce. I can honestly say that I would not have got through it without him. He is so kind and understanding, however, at the same time, so amazingly professional. His expertise and experience was absolutely apparent at every step. There was a huge amount of paperwork required for my case and he always had everything prepared exceptionally well and in a timely manner. I was kept updated every step of the way. Some of the paperwork involved was sometimes confusing for me but he always managed to make sure I understood everything and never lost patience in explaining things to me. He absolutely kept costs to a minimum and I am very happy with the amount I have paid. I am extremely happy with the outcome of my divorce and cannot recommend him highly enough.” YP
