Harbour Family Law – revealed as Finalists for a Bristol Life Award 2017!
When life takes an unsuspected turn and you find yourself facing divorce proceedings, it is imperative that you have the right person on your side. Having Katy, from Harbour Family Law as my solicitor, to help navigate the way through some very stressful and tough days, was invaluable. Katy is a very personable, capable and highly efficient solicitor. She handled my case with compassion, understanding, and a strong, positive approach. I am extremely grateful to Katy and her team for delivering effective proceedings, which resulted in a successful outcome. Thank you.
I am very pleased that I had you, Ros, and your team at my side through my difficult divorce. You gave me confidence to face a complex situation, which was compounded by the other persons demands. Not only did you address the issues with professionalism, you also had the understanding to ensure an equitable outcome. You took the stress away from me and dealt sympathetically with the other party. For this I thank you and your team from the depth of my heart.
I would highly recommend Harbour Family Law. I found Ros to be, as my sons would say, ‘Super ‘On It’’! Very thorough and responsive. The whole process, from when we first met, took 5 months. I didn’t have to worry about anything – everything was simplified, and as a busy professional this was the service I really needed. I felt that I was considered and what was best for me. I thank Ros for taking up my case and turning what was a mess into a very positive outcome. I really do thank you for your time. I am so happy that everything is now behind me.
At a particularly difficult time in my life, being hurled into unexpected divorce proceedings, I found it reassuring to have the calm advice of Katy, who explained the process to me in a straightforward manner. It was a relief to be able to hand over the issue to Harbour Family Law, who throughout dealt with the matter in a swift and professional manner, but also with compassion and understanding, which for me was helpful. Katy dealt with the other Solicitors in the same positive manner, keeping a sensible dialogue between the parties, which made it easier when my wife and I reconciled, and the divorce proceedings were halted. I am grateful to Harbour Family law for their advice and handling of the situation.
Thank you Katy and your team for everything you’ve done for me over the past 18 months. Throughout the process I felt completely confident in your professional expertise and respected your thoughtful judgments and wise advice. As importantly, I found you extremely easy to work with; calm, personable and fair. Eighteen months is a long time, especially as I live abroad and we had to rely upon emails and the occasional Skype call across time zones. All perfectly smooth and seamless. Without a doubt, one of my better decisions!
I am very happy with the service provided by Katy Zikking and all the staff at Harbour Family Law. Very professional, considerate and supportive at all times, helping the process to run smoothly throughout. I would strongly recommend Katy and the team.
I cannot rate Harbour Family Law highly enough. Fiona has provided an excellent service, making a very difficult time easy. Fiona’s calm manner and attention to detail were just what I needed. If I get divorced again I will definitely be using Harbour Family Law and Fiona!
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.
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.
