“Charles has been invaluable for me in my difficult times. After I had issues with my estranged wife, I didn't know what to do and how to overcome from the situation. My case was complex as I was no not married in UK and it involved my son. When I finally decided to have legal action, I approached Charles, with whom from the first appointment, he dig out all the crucial details of my relationship. He listened to me patiently and kept noting all the details. He has really good experience and gave my clear picture of the time scales, complexities involved and the final outcome. Having Charles on my side, I never doubted his abilities and proceeded with his advice. He kept me informed at each stage and gave me a walkthrough of the next step. He had been thorough with the paper work and all legal formalities. It was really a difficult time but when I look back now, everything done by Charles has been commendable. I never wish anyone has to consult any lawyers/solicitors for their family dispute but in case that is inevitable, I would recommend to have a word with Charles." - Anonymous
