These solicitors are as good as a London practice and use barristers from London. Very prompt and reliable service. Telephone calls always returned promptly. All correspondence addressed in a professional manner. Margaret was my solicitor and she was very good. Hilary was also a good solicitor. I would like to say the practice runs well with the help of Debbie’s professional handling of phone calls and any correspondence a very kind and reliable lady


Thank you for providing the right advice, support and the right outcome.


I would love to thank you for all of the three years hard work that you put into my case.

For me it was a very long and hard road at times but I am so grateful that I had such a brilliant team on my side.

Thank you all from the bottom of my heart.


After 15 years separation and nearly 2 years of frustrating divorce procedures I can only but thank and praise Margaret for her honest advice and sensitive handling of what is a very stressful and uncomfortable experience. 

Getting divorced even after a long period of separation is an anxious and mentally challenging experience but with Margaret’s advice and extreme patience a positive outcome was achieved both financially, but more importantly as Margaret stressed on many occasions we managed to maintain a decent relationship between both parties throughout proceedings helping to keep family harmony and a sense of respect towards each other and therefore enabling our grown up children to see their parents going through this procedure with a sense of dignity.

Thanks again Margaret for your first classes support and honest advice. 


Dee, I would just like to take this opportunity to thank you and Kerstin and all your staff for all the help and support through this very stressful process. I really look forward to closing the last page of this chapter in the next couple of weeks. As I move on knowing that I got my life back I well keep in mind and tell others of Spectrum Family Law as I am truly thankful.


I recently went through a difficult divorce and I had been recommended to Spectrum Law, who I instructed to help me. Dee Finnegan carried out all my work and her knowledge and grasp of my particular situation was spot on from day one. There were various points throughout my divorce negotiations that needed a cute and instinctive path and Dee was brilliant at gauging this. It isn’t just about knowing facts its knowing how to get to the end goal for me as the client. There were some difficult financial hurdles that were not “run of the mill” and this is where Dee came into her own to carefully help me in this difficult situation.

Dee does not waffle and drag out unnecessary work, she is to the point. I cannot recommend Dee highly enough.


Margaret – Thank you for all your kindness and support.  It helped and I really appreciated it.


Margaret, Thank you so much for all your support and your professional expertise.  Without you I would not have achieved so much.


Thank you so much Dee for your advice and work you carried out on my case. Just before you took me on as a client I was at rock bottom due to stress caused by …. and his family.

Having you take on the case was a blessing. The way you work is amazing, straight talking and honest. You always rise above any negative comments from  my husband’s solicitor and concentrate on the matter in hand, which I completely respect you for.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for getting the conclusion we have. I certainly wouldn't have got it without your expertise.


I highly recommend Spectrum Family Law. It’s sad to have to recommend a great law firm to friends that are splitting up or having family issues, but I’m proud to do so in this case as I strongly believe I could have had no better help and representation.

I found Dee to be sympathetic but professional, not distracted by my upset she gave me the facts and options I needed, in a timely and supportive manner. The divorce became a manageable beast in her hands. She was more than capable of handling my side of things, and not only that, she knew my side of things inside out – not a faceless client but someone she wanted to get through to the other side, with the best outcome possible, as efficiently as possible. And she did just that, amazing lady.


"Without Dee, I would not have had the courage to fight for a fair divorce settlement. I'm extremely grateful she was on my side"


"I cannot recommend Margaret Porter highly enough. Right from the beginning her flexible approach, empathy and professional competence made me feel at ease, and confident that the matter would be handled with proficiency and expertise to achieve the best outcome for me. I always felt that she was fully in charge of the situation no matter how drawn out the other party tried to make it and she always responded to my emails and letters really quickly. I would be more than happy to recommend her firm to handle divorce proceedings in the future."


"Dee Finnegan's advice and support during my very difficult divorce was invaluable. She guided me through a particularly traumatic time and was always patient and understanding but also extremely professional and completely determined to get the best result for me and my children. I have already recommended Dee to several friends and would advise anyone to seek Dee's help when going through a divorce. She is amazing!"


"Many thanks once again for all your help and assistance; I would like just like to say how professional, kind and engaging I have found my experience with you.

Throughout the process I have been made to feel not only that you have been there to offer advice and guidance, but that you went out of your way to make me feel comfortable and that I had a voice in this set of affairs."


"I put off getting a divorce  as the prospect of  finding the right solicitor was frightening,  not having ever had to think of such things before. Spectrum was recommended to me, I met with them and they took the time to listen without me feeling judged. They explained the process and its steps along with the options in a language I could understand.

From start to finish Spectrum  made me feel like an individual rather than another  source of income for them. , They gave me advice that was both very sound and always well thought out with a complete understanding of my personal case.

Spectrum took away my fears and did me proud, always available, always listening, always a sound investment, so much so that I am without hesitation in recommending them to anyone Put to one side any worries and fears and take the time to chat with them and from that moment on you will feel more comfortable with moving forward with your life rather than living in a rut born from fear of the unknown."
