What people say

  • After having spoken to several local firms, I had been recommended Sarah Crilly by a close friend and after speaking with Sarah Crilly initially I must say I was taken aback by her professionalism, integrity, honesty and sensitivity. I have every confidence in her abilities, on a personal note I must say she really helped me in a difficult time and l would unreservedly recommend her to anyone who is need of legal advice or services. I’d like to highlight the great work also by Hollie Morgan who oversaw the majority of my divorce proceedings, she is a credit to her team, highly professional and attentive to detail, had excellent communication skills and I wish her all the best.

  • I believe firmly matters pertaining to Family Law are in their very nature personal and so in this regard I wanted to find a firm and team of people that I felt had my best interests at heart. I must say I most definitely found that in Ward Hadaway. From the initial consultation, I was given confidence and felt assured my case would be dealt with well. I received fantastic advice on the most appropriate way to proceed, likely costs were all made clear from the onset. Communication was timely and well written. I have been most impressed with particularly Sarah Crilly and Hollie Morgan.
