what our clients say
I have worked with Alisdair for two years to complete a divorce process. I found him to be very professional and efficient and he looked after my interests throughout. He was efficient throughout and I would recommend him to anyone needing such legal advice. I see him as very professional and almost a friend when I needed one. He is an excellent lawyer and one that shows Leathes Prior in the best light and is an excellent partner to your business.
Ellie has provided unwavering support and professional advice throughout my extensive and difficult divorce process, spanning over two years. She adopts an entirely methodical and thorough approach to ensuring that progress is made, whilst maintaining a level of empathy that is critical for any client going through the long and emotional rollercoaster of divorce. She is efficient and competent, particularly when dealing with complex negotiations around finances and children. Her voice of reason and ability to articulate matters in a way that is easy for all parties to understand has been absolutely critical. She has the emotional intelligence and foresight that so many other legal advisors lack, which has made a big difference in the proceedings and makes her highly skilful at her job. I couldn’t recommend her more highly.
May I take this opportunity to pass my sincere thanks and appreciation for the services Simon provided during my recent divorce process. The situation was long, complex and quite frankly distressing at times. Simon was extremely professional through the process, and I was always feeling that he was doing his very best for me. I always perceived the empathetic side of Simon, not being treated as only a client, but also taking into consideration the nature of my own trials and stresses, and those of our fractured family unit in the advice and direction that he gave. This really made the difference in my case (and my sanity) and probably the reason I have already referred two friends toward him. I would say that Simon is a true professional, a great communicator and a people person. He is surely a credit to Leathes Prior. Thanks Simon.
Ellie has been great help and support dealing with my case, very professional and fantastic communication. Highly recommend her!
I am writing to thank your firm for the exemplary work they have conducted with regard to my divorce and subsequent sale of my property. Special mention to Alisdair Douglas, whose guidance, understanding and wise council has been of immeasurable help in somewhat testing circumstances, as well as the thoroughness and professionalism shown. I have no reservation recommending Leathes Prior to anyone seeking legal help.
I cannot thank you enough for fighting my corner through the most difficult stage of my life to date. Your friendliness and professionalism are second to none and I cannot recommend you or Leathes Prior enough.
I just wanted to write to say how grateful I am for the service provided by Alisdair Douglas in my recent divorce. He was always professional, knowledgeable and emotionally sensitive and helped me and my ex partner reach a settlement in a amicable way despite difficult circumstances.
Thank you again for the work you have carried out for me in my divorce. It has been very difficult for me due to the manner of the divorce but you have shown sympathy and kindness towards me and the situation I found myself in. Should somebody in the future need the services of a solicitor I will have no hesitation in recommending your practice.
The team at Leathes Prior is prompt and proactive, and explains the options clearly. Alisdair Douglas is very knowledgeable, and guides clients through the process in a caring way. He is one of Norfolk’s leading lawyers for complex divorce and Children Act matters.
I found Laura and her colleagues guided me through my divorce with ease and without stress, during what was a very difficult time. Professional, diligent and always making me feel like I was important at that moment. I feel confident that during the whole process the team had my best interests in hand. Thank you once again.
I just wanted to say how much I appreciated Simon’s help with my recent divorce. His professionalism and advice was spot on and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to others in a similar position. Obviously it was such a sensitive and emotional time but Simon’s guidance gave me reassurance and he is a real credit to Leathes Prior.
I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you for all your hard and professionalism throughout the proceedings. I always felt you were looking out for my best interests. It was a pleasure doing business with you and the company and will use you again should I need to and will recommend to others.
Leathes Prior’s Alisdair Douglas has a full grasp of what needs to be done. His team is easy to deal with, polite and courteous on all aspects of divorce, civil partnerships and Children Act matters.
It has been an absolute pleasure to work with Simon, who is professional, co-operative, open to different approaches whilst providing solid, common sense advice. With Simon’s support I have been able to process some of the case myself which resulted in much more cost effective outcome. I felt confident that I could reach out to Simon for just the right amount of support, when needed, and I am now certain that I would not have been able to have this kind of lawyer – client relationship elsewhere. I am hoping that I will not be needing Simon’s advice in future, however my experience with Leathes Prior has been so positive, that I will most certainly use your firm for any further legal advice or work I may be needing in future.
