What our clients say about Alison

Going through a divorce can be a very unstable, emotional and draining experience and not to mention an expensive one. Finding a good trusted solicitor who is not only well established and successful but someone who has their client’s best interest at heart is not an easy task.  I initially started my divorce journey with another practice but found them taking advantage of my vulnerable situation and draining me of the little funds I had with zero progress, here I wasted 3-4 months. Rucklidge Law was a firm recommended to my dad through a friend and in particular Alison Gaddes.  I decided very quickly to transfer my case over to Alison.  Alison took on full ownership of my case from day one, she was very professional in her approach yet with a person touch which made me feel comfortable and confident in her work.  I felt like she listened to me and understood my situation well, she was thorough with detail and communicated with me on a regular basis so that I was always aware of the progress or complications.  Alison’s main aim was the same as mine and that is to achieve the best outcome for me.  I would highly recommend Alison Gaddes; she can be trusted to do a good job and will definitely work hard to get you an outcome of which you will be fully satisfied.
