"I received a very high quality of service and excellent advice which helped me get through an extremely difficult situation. I would recommend Pinney Talfourd's services and in particular, Catherine Loadman who proved to be very knowledgeable in family matters. Helpful and efficient."
"I would like to say thank you for representing me and keeping me calm (well, nearly!) when things got stressful. You have helped me enormously and have steered me through this stressful time with sensitivity."
"My divorce took an incredible five and a half years to finalise with court appearances, multiple meetings and recapping the process where necessary due to my ex-husband refusing to progress at the same time.
I found Catherine to be top class in assisting me with the process (which was always explained clearly and precisely). Her calm and collected demeanour and the focus of a reasonable and workable settlement assisted me in keeping a clear picture of the end goal, and not getting too caught up in the emotions that normally accompany such a stressful time in a divorce.
I would wholeheartedly recommend the divorce service Pinney Talfourd provide."

"The past 17 months has been the most stressful time of my life, but the support, guidance and care I have received from Sarah Tsindides and Catherine Loadman has been exceptional. They have remained totally professional and 'on the ball' at all times and we have finally received a justified result. I cannot thank Sarah and Catherine enough."
"Catherine Loadman was fantastic - easy to get on with, easy to understand and extremely professional. She saved me from a catastrophic mistake that another solicitor would have led me to.
I would definitely consult her again on legal matters - I couldn't fault her in any way."
