Going through a divorce can be a much daunting experience for a first timer, especially if you have an uncooperative (ex) partner and topping it off with an international pandemic situation. Kristen and team were very helpful and made the whole process very smooth. Kristen, took the time to answer my numerous questions and queries throughout the process. In the end we achieved the result that we wanted. Thanks again to Kristen and team.-K.M.
We highly recommend Pete Galea and the team here at Mitchells Solicitors. Pete and the team are very down to Earth, they explain things so that it’s easy to understand. Can I say, they’re very responsive which is an absolute blessing compared to a lot of other places. Very professional.-Henry W.
“I was so happy to have come to a final agreement with my ex-partner. Things are going well in regards to co-parenting with my ex-partner. I write every message to her with the thought ‘what would Kristen say’ and it has been the best process for dealing with any disagreements. Kristen was very professional as well as empathetic to my situation. I felt like she really cared about what I was going through and that really helped me get through it. I would personally recommend Kristen to any fathers who may be going though a similar situation as I did. Thank you so much for your help Kristen.”-R.H.
“Had a crazy journey in trying to start the process of my divorce, I remember always calling and emailing with no call backs and no replies from other law firms, until I came across Mitchells Solicitors. Kristen had been such a blessing being my lawyer, she and her team did everything for me! I’ve been told so many times that going through a divorce could be the “worst migraine ever” – I can assure you with Mitchells Solicitors it’s not true!
To Kristen and the team thank you for making my divorce finally happen with peace and with no stress! You guys are truly amazing.” 🙂-J.L
