Recent Client Feedback:

“Sarah pays excellent attention to detail and not only is she compassionate she is also extremely knowledgeable and explains everything clearly.”


“It was a particularly difficult time for me and Sarah put my mind at rest straight away. I couldn’t have wished for anyone better.”


“Sarah kept us fully up to date with what was happening so we never had that feeling of “whats going on”. This week, January 2024, the final orders arrived from the Courts, job done, with the very reasonable final fees paid and having received all remaining documents, everything is up and running. This process, for me, was quite complicated, but Sarah kept everything simple and easy … if I had any queries of anything, Sarah dealt with these with ease and very quickly. If I have any future legal requirements, I will be back to Slee Blackwell, and hopefully, Sarah can help me again.”
