I left the office feeling clear and empowered… Thank you!!
I recently read there is a spike in separations in each New Year. This was my situation when my husband declared upon returning from a family holiday that he wanted to separate after 20 years together. I didn’t know what to do or who to turn to. A work colleague referred me to Colin Simpson at Springwood Lawyers. I never looked back. At a time of emotional upheaval, Colin was always kind, caring, supportive and professional. He helped me through a very difficult time in my life. I would definitely recommend Springwood Lawyers. There is a list at the end of the tunnel although you may not see it now.
