I have left a few months break before writing this review. I have used these solicitors and the services of Alan Kiddle for a matter of family law, my advice is to please think twice before using them.
Initially very polite and professional, listening and understanding. However, as the case progressed I became concerned by the advice I was given.

My conscience got the better of me, to me it was unethical standards and Alan discreetly encouraged me to mislead on court applications. My instructions were ignored and Alan instructed himself, I lost control of proceedings and when I raised my concerns I was told to follow his advice. Please avoid at all costs. Upon finding another solicitor, everything was resolved amicably in just four months. This review reflects my honest opinion.
