"Thank you for your support with my divorce, it couldn’t have been easy due to the complexity of this matter and the other side disagreeing to agree!"

"My particular proceedings were long and drawn out. The guidance and calming attitude of Nic was invaluable and without it, my patience, temper and ability to think straight would have disappeared long before settlement almost certainly going against me. Nic stopped that from happening and got me the settlement I wanted from day one."

"Estella, without your hard work, and also the way you pushed me to get the court paperwork, I would never have got a great result, and for that I need to thank you personally. The work of the barrister in court was spectacular. You are both simply the best."

"From the outset, I found Carla to be exceptionally helpful and understanding. She is a naturally empathetic person and she always responded very promptly to my queries. I found Carla’s approach to be thorough and high professional at all times. She is an invaluable asset to your firm. I have highly recommended Goodwins to friends and colleagues as an outstanding law firm in the area of family law."

"I want to express my gratitude to you for your efforts and dedication to my case; it was quite a lengthy and challenging process and, at times, heart breaking. Knowing that you were in my corner gave me strength and confidence to carry on."

"Ray is brilliant and I must call to thank him. His advice was fantastic and so he was "value for money" in that sense. Ray was more than a solicitor; he gave me honest friendship and advice. He kept me sane through some very difficult times."

"I would like to say that I found Tara Baker's support and empathy helped me through a very difficult time. Thank you."

"Ms Brown gave me very clear, helpful and succinct advice. Goodwins fixed fee interview is very good value."

"I felt that my solicitor, Mr Barda, was helpful, informative and always very friendly and cheerful which is important when you are going through such an emotional and stressful time in your life. I wouldn't hesistate to recommend your practice."

"Nic, you could not have been more helpful and patient over what, unnecessarily, turned out to be such a long and drawn-out case - in no way due to either you or me! Thank you for everything."

"Taking into account that this is the first time I have ever needed legal advice/support, Goodwins made this experience as good as anyone could hope for. I felt very looked after and would not hesitate having Nicholas represent me again. Also I would recommend collaborative law as the first way anytime."

"Overall excellent advice and support with a satisfactory result."

"I thought Ray Barda was professional and extremely good and would always recommend him."

"Estella, just a word to thank you again for the very timely and professional manner you handled my matter. You are a credit to your firm."
