What People Say

I wish to thank Katy and her team for handling my unique and highly emotive case with professionalism and care. When my ex-partner decided she wanted to move abroad with our children I had an initial meeting with Katy. I was left feeling comforted that with her help I had the best chance of reaching the happiest possible resolution for everyone. Throughout my case I always felt Katy was on-hand when I had questions and concerns and am very happy with her advice and expertise. I also feel she did a great job of safeguarding my rights as a parent. I would highly recommend Katy’s services to anyone.

Mr. C – Children Act proceedings – Leave to remove from jurisdiction

Katy provided a first class, professional, intuitive and truly collaborative service. Katy is realistic, fair and gave me a very solid overview to the process of a collaborative divorce right from the word go. Katy is also a lovely woman and mother who is approachable at all times. During the journey there were stressful times, yet Katy always put the emphasis in the right area, keeping focus of the big picture and overall goals. I am truly thankful to her and the team at Harbour Family Law. My new life has begun and despite the nature of a divorce, I feel I’ve come through into a brighter world! Whilst remaining professional throughout the process Katy has a great sense of humour, which is helpful through the tough bits and showed great experience in her field and exuded empathy throughout the process. Their offices are comfortable and calming and you can park right outside! Thanks Katy, although hoping not to need you too soon!!

Mrs. Z – Collaborative Client

Katy is a very thorough and competent professional who always had my best interests in mind. She has handled my divorce with utmost professionalism and sensitivity. Harbour Family Law always kept me well informed and I felt comfortable with them handling my affairs to secure a successful conclusion. I would have no hesitation in recommending Harbour Family Law, to help guide one through want is inevitably a difficult time for all concerned.

Mr. P – Divorce and Financial Negotiation Client

Divorce is never going to be an easy time, but choosing the right solicitor to represent you can certainly help the process. Harbour Family Law were extremely professional and delivered a constant stream of guidance and support throughout. The advice given was clear and consistent and I felt that matters were dealt with efficiently and sensitively. Above all, I had the utmost confidence in Katy and the rest of the team at Harbour Family Law; I found that helped enormously. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.

Mrs. L – Divorce and Financial Remedy Client

Harbour Family Law provided a professional, responsive and empathetic service during very difficult times. I will always be grateful for the support and advice Katy provided.

Mr. J – Divorce and Financial & Children Client

Our financial settlement is just going through the final stage of being completed and I am happy with the result. I wish to thank you for all your advice, expertise and the friendly but professional and efficient manner that you dealt with my case.

Mrs. T – Financial Remedy Client

In 2014 my 13-year marriage had collapsed. After my initial meeting with Katy I left knowing that I had found the right specialist solicitor – a great relief and a feeling of security in an uncertain time. Throughout the emotional rollercoaster of the divorce Katy remained our rock of calmness, always available to speak and quick to respond to e-mails. Katy’s experience meant that my two young children’s needs were considered and explained most carefully for all involved. A complicated financial split was managed and negotiated extremely well and professionally by Katy. I would recommend Harbour Family Law to anyone. No other solicitors matched the professionalism from Katy and her team.

Mr. M – Divorce and Financial Negotiation Client

I am very grateful for the highly professional but down to earth manner in which Katy navigated my divorce, to obtain a fair financial settlement for me. Her knowledge, expertise and flexibility were invaluable throughout the different steps of the process and her availability and hard work were very reassuring at such a difficult and stressful time. Thank you Katy!

Mr. P – Divorce and Financial Remedy Client

Katy’s professionalism, support and determination have seen me through the difficult years of my divorce and the aftermath. I am so pleased that I was advised to use her services. I hope I don’t have to use her experience again (!), however I would highly recommend Katy to anyone.

Mrs. S – Divorce & Financial Negotiation Client

I would like to thank Katy for her professional support during a very personal time in my life. Katy’s sympathetic ear and understanding of my concerns gave me the confidence from our initial meeting, which helped me stay on the right path. Katy was tenacious throughout and her attention to detail aided the case in coming to a conclusion. Although Katy was faced with fierce opposition, her spirit and confidence in truth and justice gave me the strength to continue my case. Katy never gave up on me, or the case and helped me leave bitterness behind.

Ms. N – Divorce & Financial Remedy Client
From the start of the collaborative process, Katy came across as a person who cared about the process. Katy always kept me informed and replied to emails and phone calls straight away. After nearly 25 years of marriage this was one of the hardest things I have ever had to do. Katy was always supportive and reassuring. At the end of the process I’m glad to say my ex-husband and I are on very good terms.



Mrs. T – Collaborative Client

I received my Decree Absolute through the post last week and just wanted to say a very big ‘thank you’ for all your help. You have provided an excellent service – fast, efficient and highly professional and I have felt supported through the whole process. This has been particularly important, considering my personal circumstances at the moment.

Mr. C – Divorce Client

Katy has done a thoroughly professional legal job for me, but many solicitors could do that. As I’ve gone through my divorce, what stands out for me is her ability and willingness to include the human side; to give me room to be upset, irritated or occasionally angry! It’s been a difficult time for me personally, and it has helped enormously to have a solicitor who could allow room for that too. I would thoroughly recommend Katy.

Mr. J – Collaborative Client

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.
