Harbour Family Law – revealed as Finalists for a Bristol Life Award 2017!
I found myself in a situation that I would never have chosen, and did not know who to turn to. I was recommended to speak to Katy. From the beginning of our professional relationship Katy was attentive, patient, extremely understanding, and to me was the definition of professional in all of our dealings over the next 18 months. The next year for me was a complete rollercoaster, both emotionally and financially, but Katy “held my hand” professionally the whole way through. As each chapter of the situation unfolded, Katy was never reactionary, but incredibly considered and controlled in her approach, and always found time to talk through the evolving situation of my divorce, and how we could move forward in a calm and controlled manner, which we definitely did. This allowed both parties to find a suitable and amicable agreement. Most importantly for me, this both permitted me some calm through the proceedings and most importantly for my 4 children, without the need to take them through the court process. My children were the most important people throughout my case. I cannot thank Katy and her team enough for their excellent and professional help and support throughout our time together.
I used Katy Zikking at Harbour Family Law recently for help with a Separation Agreement and found her to be most helpful, understanding and professional – she is easy to talk to, non-judgemental and responds when and how she says she is going to. Katy made what is inevitably a difficult process as easy as possible. I would have no hesitation in recommending her.
Fiona has been professional and supportive in what was one of the most difficult periods of my life. She has given me sound professional advice at every point throughout my divorce. More importantly, she listened to my concerns with a kind ear. Fiona was empathetic from the first meeting and has advised me on what was best for me and my family. She is an excellent lawyer at a professional and personal level and I would highly recommend her.
I am immensely grateful to Katy Zikking and her team. She has guided me in a sensitive, gentle and warm way through the long and draining process of my divorce. I felt I could trust her completely. Not only was she a great, invaluable support, but also crucial, together with my barrister, in securing me a more than satisfactory outcome. Thank you so much Katy!
If you have tried your best to save your marriage and all has failed, get in touch with Harbour Family Law. Katy Zikking will navigate you through probably one of the most stressful periods of your life. Her and her team’s attention to detail is excellent. I cannot thank them enough. They saved my shirt, dignity and sanity.
Katy is both easy to talk to and an excellent listener, sensitive to the emotional ups and downs of a divorce and always providing very constructive advice and support. I would have no hesitation in recommending Katy to anyone who is using collaborative divorce.
The service Harbour Family Law provided was very professional and sympathetic to my situation, and the barrister they instructed to represent me at court performed exceptionally well.
My divorce was probably one of the saddest and most devastating periods of my life. There were times when I was not only angry with my ex-wife, but sometimes also with Katy, as the allegations which were made towards me were serious and emotionally charged. Thankfully none of what was said was taken personally by Katy. Katy and her team understood that this was just part of what happens when two people cannot separate amicably. Her main focus was to help me get the best for my children and me post-divorce. Katy also instructed an excellent barrister to resolve the finances. Now that my divorce is over, I feel I can contact Katy should I need any legal advice and receive the same excellent service that got me the results that surpassed my expectations.
I have known Fiona for the last year, during which time she has handled my divorce and settlement processes. Fiona has been immensely supportive and offered succinct high quality advice in both the professional and personal arenas. She has conducted herself with sensitivity to the matters at hand and navigated a successful course through waters that were inevitably troubled. I cannot speak highly enough of her and would recommend her services to anyone.
