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.

ONLINE REVIEWS – WHY ARE THEY IMPORTANT?

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

CAN I TRUST DIVORCE AND FAMILY LAWYER REVIEWS?

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.

WHAT ABOUT NEGATIVE FAMILY LAWYER REVIEWS?

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 applied for a free consultation and I was contacted in a very short timeframe. Thank you so much for the insightful and thorough consultation, Kevin Danagher. You made me feel at ease and you provided clear expectations with the initial info I had provided... I have now a much better understanding on my query.

We had a very useful first consultation with Amber Matheson today. Amber took the time to understand our (somewhat complicated) set-up, and offered good, understandable advice on next steps. She followed up with a very thorough email clarifying what we had discussed. Highly recommended.

Feb 2024   Lucie

Lovely friendly experience. All questions were answered so that I understood completely.

Henry graciously provided his time for a consultation. I found him to be highly knowledgeable, empathetic and he provided excellent advice which put my mind at ease. Would highly recommend Henry and his firm.

Oct 2023   Allan Ang

Henry Brookman went above and beyond during the free consultation, and even overran the allocated time. He provided invaluable professional advice in a courteous manner. I recommend his firm without reservation.

Sep 2023   Mario Ignatov

I only had my initial free review with Amelia yet I already feel much more strengthened in my legal and financial position. I am currently reflecting on the steps I want to take to negotiate my desired outcome of the financial settlement but, when I am ready to use the services of a lawyer, Amelia is definitely the top on my list.

Sep 2023   Nahid Toubia

I had a zoom consultation with Lauren Moir and she was incredible. Very patient, insightful and reassuring. She also advised me based on my previous conversations with another firm and also clarified various positions I am in. Highly recommend.

Aug 2023   Gary Hawes

I was very impressed with the friendly, helpful and professional service offered by Brookman Solicitors. The generous advice and knowledge offered during the initial free consultation has enabled us to have a much better understanding of our case and plan a way forward.

I had a first consultation with Kevin, who very diligently and professionally provided an exhaustive overview of the divorce process and the best approach for my specific case.

Jul 2023   Giulia Matteo

Great service and excellent advice at the initial consultation. I would certainly recommend and use in the future.

Jul 2023   Tom James

Spoke to a kind solicitor this morning who took an hour of her time to talk me through some advice relating to a difficult separation.... She was clear and helpful with her advice, leaving me feeling much more confident with the process ahead of me.

Jun 2023   Luke Taylor

Mr Brookman provided very clear advice that left me with no doubt about the options and next steps. Getting specific advice with the requirements in the different jurisdictions was particularly useful so I won’t need to consult another lawyer outside of the UK

May 2023   Julian Anthony

From initial contact I found all staff extremely helpful and professional. My options were made clear, my query was dealt with in a sympathetic way. Would highly recommend Brookman Solicitors.

Mar 2023   seamus mcguinness

The initial consultation I have just completed with Henry Brookman was very informative; he was very open and honest about my situation, the legalities of the matter and the extent of how his firm could help.
