We engaged Lindsay's services some eleven months into a pension sharing dispute. Lindsay had come recommended by a friend, and after a successful resolution of our case, we cannot recommend her highly enough.

She is very approachable and easy to talk to - but at the same time it is clear your case is of the utmost importance to her. She is quick to respond to queries and is rigorous in checking facts and figures. Lindsay grasped the complexities of our case straight away and worked extremely hard to completely change the outcome of our case.

Eleven months previously we had ceased using our original solicitor due to mistakes he'd made and our resultant loss of trust in him. Lindsay spotted things that he had not done . We needed to have a barrister for the FDR who was very efficient and directed the offers with Lindsay's assistance to a conclusion we were very satisfied with.

Lindsay has restored our faith in solicitors and we would have no hesitation in recommending her to others. She is great value for money and we only wish we had engaged her at the start.
