I enjoy helping to empower people to make their own decisions on separation, and aim to provide a compassionate approach. I feel that it’s important that the family justice system remains accessible and affordable for all.

"I would certainly contact you again in the future should I have any further need for legal help. I was very satisfied with the work you carried out and in particular the advice you gave me and the way you always informed me of the situation as the matter proceeded."
"I just wanted to say thank you ever so much for all your work over the past 14 months or so, from the initial steps, of which I think we both thought would be a relatively straightforward divorce, that actually ended up being rather complicated! Thank you for your patience in explaining things to me. Thank you for reassuring me when things began to get complicated, and thank you for helping me put my son's interests first."
"I […] would, therefore, like to take this opportunity to thank you sincerely for all that you have done. You have understood my requirements, I have valued your advice, and you have always responded quickly and efficiently as well as keeping me very well informed. I would not hesitate to recommend your services."
"I am writing to express my thanks for the wonderful service I have received from your practice in dealing with my divorce. My excellent solicitor has been Iain Cutts who has been so helpful during a long process - always reassuring me, keeping me informed and helping me to be calm and patient during a very frustrating period. It has been so reassuring to have someone I could trust to achieve a fair and satisfactory outcome for both parties and who really seemed to value me as a client.
I have had nothing but the best help and advice throughout the whole process and will continue to use and recommend your firm in the future."
"I would like to thank you for the way my divorce was handled very efficiently. At a difficult time, this was made easier with your high standard of service. I would recommend you in the future."
"I was always treated quickly and sympathetically which was appreciated due to the nature of my problems."
