“Ushma’s guidance and help was invaluable through an extremely difficult divorce case. The other party was generally unresponsive to the whole process and dragged his heels at every opportunity. Ushma talked me through the process and what my options were, in a way that was clear to me. She answered all my questions, no matter how small of trivial I thought they were. She showed empathy and understanding when it became overwhelming and she reassured my doubts and concerns. The whole process was daunting but I came through it with a great result. I honestly could not have had a better solicitor.”
