"Sue was great in achieving all that needed to be done without having to go to court. Highly recommend."
"As soon as I heard Sue’s voice on the phone, I felt calm instantly. Without her calmness and realism, my divorce case would have been worse. Sue worked on my behalf with my best interests always at heart.
Her knowledge and expertise meant that I had no unrealistic expectations, and she always handed my case to two excellent lawyers (Michael Sheville and Catherine Polli) when she was on leave, so I was always well looked after and supported. Sue’s assistant Linda Adams was also a superstar – efficient and beyond helpful.
Well done Pinney Talfourd, you have an excellent team."
"Thank you very much for the time, attention and consideration you showed. I am aware that you went over and above the call of duty and it makes a great difference going forward to know that I've been given such excellent advice by someone who'll take such time and trouble. I'll need further advice down the line and I hope that it will come from you."
"When I first called you all those years ago I was in a bit of a state and you said 'I'll have you and your ex dancing together at your daughter's wedding'. You've been true to your word and helped me and my ex stay good friends - from your advice over mediators to your good humoured patience with my general incompetence you've been brilliant all the way through. I will, as they say, use you every time I get divorced..."
