”I was lucky to have Christine McNeish act for me in my recent protracted divorce. Right from the initial meeting I knew I was in safe hands. She clearly explained how the complex process ”that is divorce” could be navigated to give both parties a fair outcome and reassured me of my position and future finances. She was very clear about what she thought I could expect from the split of assets and maintenance payments. Whilst her feathers were never ruffled she did have teeth when she needed to represent my position. I found the whole experience both emotional and complex, but always new Christine would be “on it“ in her calm reassuring way. She was accessible and happy to talk things through on the phone and when we did have a meeting I always came out feeling much more positive than when I went in. I am very happy to recommend her services to anyone going through this difficult and unfortunate process”. Anna Simons
