Divorce lawyer reviews

Date: January 23rd, 2018 - Written by: Brookman Solicitors


All solicitors undergo rigorous training. This gives you a degree of reassurance when searching for the right divorce solicitor. In addition the Solicitors Regulation Authority monitors professional conduct and all solicitors are required to hold professional indemnity insurance. So if something goes wrong with your legal representation there are ways to rectify matters. This isn’t the case if you represent yourself or use an unregulated legal advisor. Some firms, including Brookman have additional accreditations such as Lexcel. This is awarded only to firms with the highest management and customer care standards. We also feature in the respected legal directory of law firms, The Legal 500.

Today most people’s search for an experienced divorce solicitor starts online. Reviews posted by past clients and website testimonials provide crucial information about the personality of a law firm, the skills of particular solicitors, their ethos and their approach to work. This type of information is easy to find – and it is invaluable to people looking for a divorce solicitor. Online divorce and family lawyer reviews as well as established legal directories are now the most effective way to differentiate law firms. In short they are the most effective tool for finding the right divorce solicitor for you.


Divorce and family lawyer reviews matter because they are written by genuine clients. They haven’t been composed by a marketing team trying to create an image for a law firm that might be misleading. Instead they are the opinions of men and women who have had the same experience of family breakdown as you. People who have had the same priorities and worries as you.

We get enormous satisfaction from our own online reviews and hope they are useful to potential clients. A quick look at some of them shows what clients really appreciate about our service. Comments include:

not being made to feel like just another client


lawyers who are confident, good listeners, tactful


highly knowledgeable and experienced divorce solicitors


genuine empathy and compassion – a quality I did not find with other solicitors that I contacted before Brookman


not afraid to tell things as they are – even if I would find that hard to accept


calm and rational approach, seeking as far as possible to defuse the hostility and animosity wherever they could

While there are genuine concerns about fake online reviews for some products and services we believe it’s usually obvious whether the law firm reviews you’re reading are genuine. Firstly it’s not as easy to fake a review of a divorce solicitor in the same way that a review of a new electrical appliance (for example) could be faked. Comments tend to be unique and often identify the way an individual solicitor helped. If the reviews you are reading clearly show specifics about the client’s circumstances, then they are much more likely to be real. If the reviews offer more generic praise or criticism, you may want to research a little more to be sure the reviews are genuine.



Sometimes negative reviews are the most useful type of review of all. They can highlight flaws you would never have been able to discover alone. In addition it is always worth considering how a law firm or solicitor responds to a negative review. Often there is a legitimate explanation for the poor review. Sometimes the firm will apologise. If the firm disputes the review consider whether they do so in a professional and polite manner. This can tell you as much about the law firm’s attitude to clients as any positive review.

I had an initial consultation and Henry was well prepared. He gave great advice and followed through quite quickly. He was very helpful.

Henry and team were most professional, considerate and efficient when handling the financial proceedings owing to my overseas divorce. I recommend their services highly. International circumstance was at first to me most daunting and confusing, given each country had its' own unique approach. Thankfully Henry was knowledgeable of the law on either side of the seas and able therefore to provide best guidance and reasoning to me which enabled favourable settlement!

I contacted Brookman to ask for information regarding the validity of an international divorce court ruling. They were very quick in providing me with the right information. When I had another question a few months later around children matters I phoned them again and after taking some background information and contact details they booked me in for a free telephone consultation with 1 of their partners Talitha Brookman. She spent half an hour of her time explaining to me what I could expect and provided legal advice. All was free of charge. I would not hesitate to contact them again should any matter become more formal and have to go through court. The service has been quick, professional and very friendly.

Highly recommend this firm. Having searched around different firms for advice for some time, I had a free consultation with Henry Brookman. He was incredibly knowledgeable about my complex situation, gave straightforward advice and empowered me to understand exactly how I need to proceed.

I recently had a free initial consultation with Henry Brookman via video conference. He was considered and meticulous in his approach and gave me well thought through advice. He followed this up with a letter in writing summarising the advice he gave me. I would thoroughly recommend his services to anyone looking for legal representation in a divorce.
