Customer Testimonials

From my first visit, the professional and thorough approach by Townsend Family Law put me at ease. The confidence, professionalism and attention to the smallest detail was beyond doubt a major part in saving my business, my home and so many of the assets I had worked so hard to achieve. Many questions pass through your mind as you make decisions [on which firm of solicitors to use]… make this positive decision to appoint this company, they will fight your corner with the utmost professionalism from the first phone call to the completion of all business, the same attention to detail will, I can assure you be applied. This is a team that works

A big thank you for all of your help and hard work! We really appreciate it and are lucky to have you fighting our corner. I can’t tell you how much the result we got last week means and the difference it will make to our lives. Thank you again

Having found myself in a situation I never expected, the team at Townsend Family Law helped me to get through it by their professional but friendly approach. Their help, advice and knowledge was invaluable, they explained everything to me clearly so that I fully understood the process every step of the way and I would not hesitate in recommending them to others.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you not only for the provision of expert advice which was delivered in a highly professional manner, but also for the quality of care and compassion with which you supported me through an exceptionally difficult period in my life. I would be delighted to recommend you as a practice which meets the holistic needs of its clients.

What can I say.... "outstanding". As a father fighting for his son, I was at the worst time of my life. Melanie and her staff have given me my world back. No words can express the gratitude I feel.

Thank you for all your help over the last three + years. It was an emotional experience but you all helped me through it. Having experienced the way in which you communicated, guided and clarified the issues to both myself and the other side, I am glad that I chose to use Townsend Family Law. I would recommend your practice to any prospective client.

May I just repeat what a pleasure it was having you all on my side during a very difficult time. I will be forever grateful for your humour and professionalism, it was very reassuring.

I now have my finances sorted and best of all an offer accepted on a property. I am buying with cash, no mortgage, which at my age is so important and a brand new car straight out of the showroom… so my new life starts debt-free! I could never have achieved this without, I will always be grateful to you and I’m so thankful I came to you for help.
