“After a long and difficult ,emotional separation resulting in a crazy , lengthy divorce. ..... I have closure. I would like to take this opportunity to say how very lucky and fortunate to have had such a caring , genuine , real person /solicitor being the  title I would use to describe Deborah. Having been to at least 6 other solicitors before Deborah in the Worthing area I had almost lost faith in anyone's care or consideration , or merely someone who actually understood me as an individual, who listened to a real life existence and a situation . Deborah had such compassion and such a way that made me feel , good enough , she built my confidence up to face what I needed to face. I never felt this way before , I had been put down I had been told " sort yourself out " . Come back when you know what you are doing.

Deborah never gave me any doubt . She was so calm so supportive , and encouraging  which for many is what is most important. The client can only be guided and the decisions are still down to them most of the time. However, Deborah helped with those decisions otherwise I wouldn't have been able. I think so many complain about a bad service but not many give a positive comment when a good service is given. For me Deborah was perfect and would without a doubt recommend her to anyone looking for a compassionate caring solicitor who genuinely cares .

Thank you for your facility and Thank you for assigning Deborah to my case”.
