“The Family Law company were brilliant when dealing with my case. As soon as my solicitor, Alexandra Boardman, had all the necessary reports needed she had my case in court the same day and the non-molestation ordered I needed granted. I couldn’t ask for a better solicitor. I will definitely use this company again in the future if I need to.”
