“Wanted to say a big thank you for everything you have done for me during the worst time of my life. Since the moment I met you I have trusted everything you have done. It has been a long hard road for me but you have made it so much easier, I know it’s your job but not everyone cares, you did.” 2017 client.

“I am more than satisfied with the result and really do appreciate all that your team did to help me finally get the this end result. I shall of course be singing your praises to anyone and everyone. You are the ultimate professionals in your field. Knowledgeable, efficient, giving clear directive, but still remaining personable and showing empathy to the client. I cannot thank you enough. A celebratory weekend is in store.”
“I would have no hesitation in recommending Christopher Birch. I first approached Chris in the early part of 2016 and his knowledge of the law amazed me and still does.
Immediately I felt I was in safe hands and the trust for him was instant, which for me at that vulnerable time was most important. Throughout my divorce process I felt protected from the start and knew he was trying to get the best financial settlement for me.
Chris was always on the end of the phone and kept me up to date with everything. He gave advice which was needed as my head was all over. The emotional support from Chris and the whole team at Stowe Family Law in Ilkley and Harrogate has been fabulous and has made this awful situation much easier to deal with.
Professional all the way with a personal touch. Spot on!“
