Mrs H, Switzerland

“Excellent. Catherine Polli over-delivered. Professional, experienced, timely and flexible to my needs (I was managing this divorce outside from the UK). The legal advice was always balanced, always sharing the pro’s/cons and the legalities. This helped me in my decision making.  I received regular updates and Catherine always made herself available if I needed to talk over the phone, or even on weekends to fit with my work/travel schedule. A role model of what you should expect to see from a professional. I would strongly recommend the services of Catherine and Pinney Talfourd.”

Mrs H, London

"7 years later, I've recommended yet another friend to you this week. I'll never forget your care and consideration throughout. I know you are the right woman for the job! I told her to build an army of good people around her - and that you were my General!"
