I was made to feel very welcome, everything was explained to me and all questions answered.  Very helpful and informative Derek Jordan was very professional , funny when I needed to feel at ease with court processes and an all round ‘Legend’ in my eyes.  Thank you.

Derek will always encourage positive co-parent relationships wherever possible whilst always working to ensure that his clients and any children are kept safe and protected from any harm.
