“Divorce is never easy but Nastassia and her team at Stowe always made me feel supported, well advised and their priority whenever I needed them. Nastassia has a very approachable style and always makes sure you are clear what stage things are at and that decisions you make are well informed. Thanks again.”
“Stowe’s were extremely professional, helpful and knowledgeable at every stage of my family law legal battle. I was extremely impressed at their level of expertise, and the ease with which they constantly put me during what was a highly stressful time. Due to their great advice, hard work, and access to a truly fantastic barrister we won our legal battle. I would highly recommend Stowes (and especially Nastassia Burton, partner at the Wilmslow office) to anyone thinking of getting a solicitor. They are friendly and highly professional, a great mix.”
“My divorce has been the most difficult time emotionally, physically and financially, but my solicitor Nastassia was wonderful. She and her colleagues at Stowe Family Law guided me through the whole process professionally and compassionately. Legal terms and processes were broken down to make sense to me and I always felt I could call for help with any query relating to the divorce. I can never put into words properly the gratitude I feel for all the help I received at Stowe Family Law.”
“After 23 years with my partner the last place I expected to be was at a family law firm talking divorce! However, I couldn’t have been in better hands than Nastassia Burton at Stowe Family Law.”
“There’s so much conflicting information out there when you start to look, and it’s a scary prospect, but from the outset I was treated with compassion and encountered total professionalism. Although for me, most importantly, the advice and information I received was no-nonsense, straightforward and everything was fully explained.”
“I will soon be divorced and the process from start to finish will have taken no longer than 4 months enabling me to get the closure I need and I can’t thank the staff at Stowe enough for making such a life changing event as stressless as possible.”
“I found Stowe to be entirely professional and level headed in their advice. Their approach was one of common sense and hence we minimised unnecessary conflict or correspondence. Their advice – especially at an unexpected juncture – was robust and sensitive. In hindsight I wish I had engaged with Stowe earlier in my situation.”
“I cannot thank Nastassia enough for all her help on my matter. Nastassia was reassuring and I now feel that me and my son’s father can now try to communicate with one another. I would recommend Stowe Family Law to anyone in need of a solicitor. Thank you again.”
“Nastassia, thank you to you and your associates for helping to guide me so successfully through the divorce process. For both parties to feel a fair outcome has been achieved is a very positive result. Thank you for your speed and efficiency with which you have dealt with matters. It has been a pleasure dealing with you.”
“Thank you for all you have done for me and my daughter over these past 10 months. It has been an extremely difficult time and without your support, guidance and professionalism I am not sure i would have got the results that I wanted.”
“Nastassia provided me with excellent advice and support over the 12 months that it took to finalise my divorce. Throughout the process I always felt confident that my divorce proceedings were being handled efficiently and that we weren’t ‘missing a trick’. Nastassia made a difficult process easier for me to deal with.”
“May I say how much I have valued your help and support, through this process. Your advice to me in the initial consultation has been invaluable, and I cannot thank you enough. I have felt in very safe hands throughout.”
“I really valued the help and advice I received throughout the process. From the first consultation, until all was agreed and resolved I felt in very safe hands.”
“Stowe provided me with honest and trustworthy advice, enabling me to easily rely on their experience and strong reputation whilst going through the divorce process. I am satisfied that I have reached the outcome that I wanted from my divorce, thanks to Nastassia and Stowe. I would absolutely recommend Nastassia to anyone going through a divorce. She provided excellent advice; responding promptly to matters at hand. Her empathetic approach made the ordeal of divorce much less daunting.”
