Client – 2021

Swati Somaiya of Excello Law supported me to achieve a positive and fair conclusion to matrimonial financial dispute resolution, following divorce.  I received responsive and tenacious counsel; delivered with clarity and balance.  The experience was personally challenging and emotive, but Swati showed compassion and empathy; and enabled me to feel empowered.
