The first time I spoke to Zoë I knew I wanted her to deal with my divorce. She was the perfect combination of caring and supportive and efficient and professional. In her absence her colleague Dianne was always friendly and knowledgeable. I had total confidence in Zoë's ability to finalise my divorce proceedings.
I am delighted to commend Zoë for her highly efficient, professional and caring manner. Zoë instilled confidence from the outset and demonstrated a high level of professional expertise. Zoë guided me skillfully through a sensitive legal issue. Thank you!
