Testimonials

"I was looking for a solicitor to handle my divorce which was not a straight forward case as since our separation my ex husband and I could not agree on a settlement between ourselves. Maples was highly recommended to me by several people that had used them in the past, so I made contact and booked my first appointment. I received first class service from the outset and all the information was upfront, honest and easy to understand. I was kept up to date throughout the process and more than happy with the end result. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Maples, especially Anita and Sue to everyone that needs good, honest advice a great service."

"Anita was extremely understanding, efficient and sensitive in what was a difficult time. I’d have no hesitation in recommending her to others."

"Found Anita to be very good at her job, and I felt comfortable at all times, would not hesitate to use her again."

"Mrs A Toal was very professional and supported me throughout the troubling time.  Mrs Toal always had time to explain anything which I didn't understand - she really went above and beyond.  Thank you very much for all your help and the advise [sic] you gave me - I am now able to have my child overnight.  Highly recommend!"
