  • 'Hal Branch saved the day as my first divorce solicitor was very poor. He finalised my divorce in 2 weeks where my previous solicitor hadn’t made any real progress in the previous 2 years. He gives advice in a language that can actually be understood and promptly replies to any enquiry. Overall very happy and everyone I dealt with at the firm were very friendly and professional.'
