"I would like to thank Paul Linsdell and his team for their care and compassion during my divorce proceedings on both child and financial matters. From my very first dealings with Paul I felt supported; his calm demeanour and pragmatic advice I had the upmost confidence in. I was guided through each step of the process and Paul really listened and understood my wants and needs. Whilst I hope to never have to go through such a personally difficult time again, I would recommend him to anyone who finds themselves in a similar situation."
