“Michaela Beale is an exceptional solicitor and were a member of my family to require the services of a lawyer in a care case, I would recommend her as a ‘go to’ representative. From the work I have done with her, it is clear that she is consistently practical and proactive. When challenging a local authority in a case, this robust approach is vital in ensuring that the clients position is optimised. Michaela’s judgement in proceedings is unparalleled and she always manages to combine efficient professionalism with a human touch.” – HP
“I could not have done this without Michaela, she has undertaken so much work and progressed this case, it has not only helped me but the children so much, I could not be more happy with how I have been represented. Michaela has always kept me informed and explained the law and the process in a way that I understand. I would have no hesitation in instructing Michaela again in any other family matter and I would highly recommend her and the firm to others. Michaela has gone above and beyond, because of her work the children are now placed in my care” – FM
“I just wanted to email to say thank you for the support. I have absolutely no doubt that if I had gone to a different firm or had a different solicitor, my child would not have come home to me. I am so grateful that you listened to me. I know there were some difficult conversations but I fully accept that they needed to take place. Your advice was spot on. I cannot recommend you highly enough!! Michaela is and was wonderful. Thank you always and forever” – PD
