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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
When I needed legal advice and support urgently, Carla saw me the very next day. She was patient, understanding and answered my many questions about the process and how I should respond to the other party. Carla's expert advice helped me to navigate a course through it all; I knew I was in safe hands. In Court, Carla was the epitome of professionalism. It was a difficult and scary time for me but Carla was able to provide clear answers to my endless questions and help calm my nerves. She negotiated well with the other party and each time we went to Court, the experience provided assurance that I had definitely made the right choice in selecting Carla and Leathes Prior to represent me.
Simon Willis was acting for me in the family court at Norwich Magistrates. I would like to give feedback that I was impressed with Simons professionalism throughout my journey which lasted just under a year all together. Simon was calm and collective and advised me appropriately throughout. When I was down Simon gave me hope. And he was right. Simon had quite an awkward task with my case from many obstacles being put in my way to get me access to my son. Simon stuck with it and gave 110% all the time. I was impressed with Simon's presentation skills within court and his overall professionalism. I would certainly recommend Simon Willis at Leathes Prior for any future family law cases.
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've recently worked with Carla on my divorce case and wanted to say that I have been very impressed with her prompt and open and honest dealings with me. Her advice has been fair and constructive, and the service from yourselves as a firm has been top rate. Should I need solicitor services in future I'd look to yourselves in the first instance.

Just superb – great service, great communication, no gobbledegook.
Wanted to say a big thank you for all your help! Just to make you aware that I have recommended you to a friend who is in a similar position, as I was hugely impressed with the way you dealt with the situation, I really felt like you understood the case, and wanted the best for my children which primarily was my concern!
As always excellent, courteous, prompt and professional service.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you very much indeed for all your work. Your courtesy and efficiency has been very much appreciated.

I just wanted to let you know how grateful we are for all your help and advice during the last few weeks, and for keeping us so well informed, thank you.
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.
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.
