I found Laura to be focussed, professional, compassionate and understanding. She quickly grasped key issues and understood what was important to me. Laura was customer focussed, and her advice was orientated around ensuring the best possible outcomes for me, but also making me aware of all of the potential eventualities. Laura was able to help me arrive at a financial position which exceeded my initial expectations. I was able to protect financial investments which were important to me, and also recovered funds from assets that I otherwise expected to lose. Whilst the service was not inexpensive, I felt the price I paid for Furley Page’s representation, was ultimately worthwhile in protecting my longer term interests. Client of Laura Sinclair, Mr S, Sittingbourne

Everything explained in easy to understand language. All staff very professional and approachable.  Laura kept me updated, explained and chased up delays on my behalf.  Laura made a sad and difficult time much easier, by keeping me updated regularly – thank you.

Laura made me feel at ease.  A good listener and gave good advice along the way, very succinct. Laura kept me inform of potential costs. It was nice to have a solicitor like this.  I’ve come across other solicitors who are arrogant and very poor at explaining issues and are unable to communicate. Mr M, Etchingham, client of Laura Sinclair

I just wanted to send you a message...

I just wanted to send you a message to say thank you ever so much for all your help and advice and for your professional service when dealing with my divorce. You reassured me from the start and always kept me updated throughout the process which made a difficult situation much more bearable.   Thanks again its much appreciated. Mrs D of Folkestone, Client of Laura Sinclair

I want to say a huge thank you...

I want to say a huge thank you for your time and patience with me, as I’m sure it was difficult to keep track when I couldn't appoint you fully on my behalf.  Your advice and expertise was invaluable and it would be impossible to quantify the difference you have made to the lives of my children through it all. Client of Laura Sinclair, Mr B of Dover
