"Family matters, Divorce and financial settlement matters. Both Beth and Katy work extremely well as a team. The whole experience of divorce has personally, been extremely harrowing for me. It has been a very long and drawn out process due to my ex-wife. Beth has been extremely patient and professional throughout. The advice has always been sound and well thought out with every angle covered. Both Beth and Katy have an uncanny knack of putting across what is complicated legal jargon into easy to understand layman's terms."

“You are so patient and explain things so well”

“You really put my mind at ease”

“You’re so kind and understanding”

“You have all been amazing …. the communication has been great and everyone is so kind and helpful.  This has taken a huge amount of stress and pressure off me during a very difficult time.  I will be forever grateful”

"From start to finish Beth was a pleasure to deal with. Beth made what was a stressful experience so much easier and I’m very grateful for all of her help. Special thanks to Katy also, she was also a pleasure to deal with. Will definitely recommend if anyone else finds themselves in my situation!"

"Fantastic service from Beth Tutchener-Ellis and Katy Halford - we were always able to contact if needed or visit in branch at Telford. We were kept updated at all stages of my divorce. I was nervous before my meeting with Beth, however there was no need to be. She instantly put me at ease so I felt comfortable to detail my situation and what help I needed. Beth was understanding and informative; I felt confident in my decisions and clarity in what I need to do. Would highly recommend to anyone who is looking for a family solicitor."
