Going the extra mile for her clients
As the area of Family work is extremely personal Rachel appreciates that it is often a very difficult and stressful time for clients. She aims to make the legal process to resolve the relevant issues as smooth as possible and prepare and explain issues fully to her clients in order that they are aware and prepared for any potential difficulties which may arise.
Rachel prides herself on being available to clients by telephone or email and also offering an initial free 30 minute consultation and ‘out of hours’ appointments for clients or even visiting clients at home if necessary.
In my own time
