“Throughout my protracted divorce case owing to its financial complexity Lucy was a force of unwavering support to me. She is the dream lawyer that every client wishes to have - diligent, calm and incredibly knowledgeable in the family law field. The combination of her many years of experience along with her personable nature are what gave me continuous peace of mind throughout as I knew from the start to the finish I was in very safe and capable hands.”
“I retained Lucy’s services after speaking to her on the phone long distances. She came across as knowledgeable and crucially, empathetic. I have not been disappointed. Her sage advice and mastery of the minutiae were invaluable. She respected my priorities, resolved potential conflicts, and delivered on her promises by avoiding protracted and costly litigation. I recommend Lucy without reservation”.
“Lucy Marks is efficient, approachable, understanding and has worked tirelessly moving our case forward. She has a wonderful ‘bed side’ manner yet is firm and capable dealing with the other party’s legal team. I feel protected legally. She translates the legal jargon into plain English and has made a hugely unpleasant situation do’able. I feel she has my family’s best interests at heart and can stand up to the most ruthless opponent. I feel she is modestly priced for a solicitor with this amount of experience and that she cares, rather than seeing cases as a game of chess to make money. I would not have been able to have survived this latest round of Court without her and cannot recommend her more. She is exceptional”.
