“I really don’t think that I would be where I am today without her”
“From the very first meeting Naomi put me completely at ease. I appreciated the fact that she didn’t “sugar coat” anything but gave me the hard facts in an empathetic way whilst making me feel totally confident in how she would respond to any potential situation. She certainly made what could have been an extremely traumatic experience far easier to get through by being extremely competent yet with underlying empathy. If anything I felt that I could speak to her as I would a friend.”
“Thank you again for your help over the last 18 months. I think it would be fair to say that this matter has not been without its challenges. You exercised patience and a belief that ultimately the time would come where the nonsense would stop. The outcome at the final hearing was in my view right and far exceeded what we had hoped for. Thank you.”
“Thank you so much for your help, at what was quite a difficult and traumatic time for me. You offered clear, useful help and advice on lots of issues I found problematic and upsetting. This made me feel positive that my struggles were not in vain. Thank you once again for supporting me and giving me courage”
“It has been a real pleasure to work with Naomi, she has been professional from the outset, completely reliable and efficient. Naomi has always been honest and given the best advice for me. At times when I was unsure of things she has listened to me, answered my questions and has encouraged me to keep on going. Naomi has done a great job”
“I’d just like to say a big thank you now my divorce is complete. From my first meeting with you I have had nothing but praise for you. I’ve been given support, expert advice and have always been kept up to date with the proceedings. You were lovely, supporting and calming when I had to go to court and I am really grateful for that as I was a bag of nerves!”
Naomi grew up in Manchester and now lives in Derbyshire with her husband and twin boys where she enjoys country life.
