I instructed Lucy to represent clients of mine at court hearings on various occasions. Lucy is diligent in her work and has a caring manner. She fights a client’s position with vigour but is also particularly good at managing expectations and ensuring the client ha a full understanding of what is happening during the hearing process. I have no hesitation in recommending Lucy as an expert family law Counsel.
