“I cannot thank Zara Prentice enough for supporting me throughout a very messy divorce. Not only was Zara so thorough and professional throughout the year and a half she worked on my case, she supported myself and my children emotionally and I would never have got through this traumatic experience without her support. We had the best possible outcome and I am forever grateful to you Zara.”

“Following a surprise case brought against my daughter by her ex-partner regarding custody of their son, I contacted Zara at Prentice Family Law for advice and told her that we need her involved as much as possible during the forthcoming court cases, to ensure things went as smoothly as possible and so that we knew best and worst case scenarios. The outcome of the court case was in our favour which was largely due to Zara’s tireless work and ever available advice. Thanks to Zara and her team.”

“Zara helped me a great deal with a very difficult situation involving my ex-husband and our consent order, specifically in relation child maintenance. She dealt with it in a professional, calm and efficient matter, often responding to emails out of hours, answering every question I posed to her (and there were lots!). Despite having to progress the matter to court, the advice, reassurance and support I received from Zara was invaluable. Thankfully the matter was resolved in court and an incredibly stressful period is now behind me – thank you so much. I would have no hesitation in recommending Zara at Prentice Family Law.”

I would like to thank you from bottom of my heart. It has been a long journey, and I can’t thank you enough for your expert professional services for every complication in my case. For someone who has been living 4500 miles away from home without her family with little legal knowledge, you encouraged me to take this long challenge and helped me in every step. It helped me to get some kind of closure and thank you for helping me out with  my anxiety regarding my budget and for making me feel positive to receive a good outcome.

“After a few initial consultations with various solicitors, it was clear that Paul was the right solicitor for us by a mile – he is very knowledgeable, easy to talk to, and extremely efficient. His initial telephone consultation filled us with confidence that Paul would be the best legal representative to help us find a resolution to our dispute. Paul was even available outside of usual working hours to offer legal advice and reassurance, at a very stressful time. It is with thanks to Paul and his legal expertise, that we achieved a positive outcome. Prentice Family Law would be our first choice for a solicitor if need arises in the future, and we would recommend him to anyone looking for a professional and reliable service.”

Paul has been very helpful, professional and knowledgeable throughout the course of my family court case. His continued support has allowed me to understand the process, answering all my questions and eased any concerns I had. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to friends and family.

“The challenges when my marriage ended extended well beyond the Decree Absolute.

At the most vulnerable time of my life, I continued to experience very challenging behaviours from my former husband for some years that needed legal backup to manage. Paul helped me to gain confidence, providing real clarity on what was reasonable to expect coming out of divorce, and acted for me to challenge what was not.

His personal involvement is a notable strength, he gets results, is realistic about what is needed, and I would recommend him to anyone needing to navigate what can be complex and emotionally-draining waters. It was support that I could not have managed without. “

“Paul advised me in connection with my divorce which became final in September 2017. He provided a perfect mix of excellent practical advice alongside dealing efficiently with the formalistic requirements and framework around the divorce processes.

He was always available and his easy going style and reassurance made what is a stressful time, more tolerable.

Where possible Paul offers constructive advice on when and how you can deal with certain practical matters yourself without the need to go through him – that was unexpected and a testament to his attitude to help clients keep down unnecessary costs.

Whilst for personal reasons I hope I have no need to use Paul’s services again, I would have no hesitation in recommending him if you want sensible, practical legal advice on marital matter at a sensible price.”

“I found Paul Prentice to be straight talking and Pro-Active in getting to a resolution in my long and arduous Divorce settlement.
He willingly took on the case from an unhelpful and Re-Active Solicitor franchise who I was unhappy with. Paul was available almost 24/7 to contact and always replied in good time.”

“I was looking for a solicitor I would feel comfortable talking to, so I could understand my options and make the best possible decisions for my future. I was very pleased that I had Paul on my side to help me. I have already recommended Paul to a colleague. I never felt alone, Paul would always be at the end of the phone or an email would always directly come back to me within minutes, if I needed urgent advice, week days, weekends and even when he was on holiday! I cannot express enough “Prentice Law Firm” were there for me every step of the way and pulled me through successfully with a very happy ending. I highly recommend them.”

“I telephoned Paul using the free initial phone call consultation, I was overwhelmed and hugely impressed with the advice Paul gave me. I went from the initial phone call to three family court and two financial hearings with the help of Paul and his team. Highly recommend Prentice Family Law.”

“I chose Paul Prentice to represent me and to fight my case in a messy divorce and Financial Dispute Settlement more or less randomly – because his office was the nearest one to my home. I could not have made a better choice if I’d interviewed a hundred Solicitors. Paul was unfailingly helpful and proactive on my behalf. He always gave measured and sensible advice and helped me through an extremely unpleasant couple of years, culminating in a highly successful Family Law Court case (with the help of a Barrister recommended to me by Paul). If I ever find myself in need of a Solicitor again, Paul Prentice will be my first choice.”

“I would recommend Paul and his team, their knowledge, and response time was impeccable, amazingly hard-working helping through the most stressful time in my life of a difficult divorce, straight speaking advice and the ability to contact of an evening or a weekend was invaluable. Paul and Gillon Cameron make a dynamic team. I had switched to Prentice Family Law from another solicitors after a couple of them had left the firm and then forever awaiting return of a call or a an email was frustrating.”

“After being unhappy with the time it took my previous solicitor to respond to my emails and phone calls, I transferred my case to Paul and the improvement I noticed was exceptional. Paul was always on hand to deal with any concerns that I had, which was very comforting at what was a difficult time for me.”
