I could not have got through these last 5 years without you

I don’t know what to say to Jill.  You have been absolutely amazing over this journey which I feel like we have taken together.  You have been so much more than just my Solicitor. You have been my agony Aunt, my voice of reason & my confidante. I could not have got through these last 5 years without you & kept the bit of sanity I have left !!!!  You are such a wonderful Lady & to me you are now a wonderful friend. Please never forget how amazing you are.

Finding a good trusted solicitor is not an easy task.

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.

For a divorce, and complicated financial issues, I would highly recommend her – in fact I already have!

Angela was responsive and understanding of my situation from the start. She provided advice on every step of the divorce process and was always quick to respond to my queries and move things forward. While I was disappointed with the outcome at an interim hearing for a non-molestation and occupation order, I think Angela did her best to help with an unexpected addition to the supposedly straightforward divorce that I had originally engaged her for, and I really felt for her and the way the judge talked down to, and even over her, during the telephone court hearing. After this, Angela continued to help me with finalising the divorce and financial arrangements, helping me to understand what I did and didn’t need to reveal in the paperwork. For a divorce, and especially for complicated financial issues, I would highly recommend her – in fact I already have!

I felt immediate relief that we had finally got it sorted.

I recently used Rucklidge Law to write a set of wills for me and my husband. The process was extremely straightforward. Claire Trueman, the Wills Solicitor was very friendly and put us at our ease immediately. Even though we were talking about an emotional subject, we worked through it really quickly and felt immediate relief that we had finally got it sorted out. We had one meeting on Zoom, and everything else was done by email. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Rucklidge Law to anyone looking to get their wills sorted. Thanks Claire!

Her understanding, empathy and compassion are rarely found in the legal profession.

Relocating to Australia with my 2-year-old daughter was a daunting task.  I didn’t know where to begin or what questions to ask.  Jill did everything that was needed, completely reducing my stress and anxiety.  Her expert knowledge of UK family law made a significant different to the outcome of my case and I was able to get the best possible result in court.  Jill’s warm, down to earth personality made me feel at ease the moment I met her.  Her understanding, empathy and compassion are rare qualities found in the legal profession.  I look at how happy we are now, and every day thank my lucky stars I had Jill on my side.

You were such a warm and friendly person – not traits I had associated with solicitors!

I just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you for your help throughout this process. You were such a warm and friendly person (I’ll be honest – not traits I had associated with solicitors!), at a time when I felt completely lost. When I think back to it now, I was an absolute mess in January when I walked through your door, and to be honest, scared out of my wits about what was going to happen with my husband and the house and I suppose my whole future. You put me at ease straight away and were so kind when I was upset and emotional. And of course you gave me fantastic professional advice and guidance when I didn’t have a clue what I was doing!

Always ready to listen and give good advice.

Angela provided a wonderful service, friendly and reassuring.  Always ready to listen and give good advice, both on the phone or at the office, which was at a convenient location, thank you!

The advice you gave me from the beginning filled me with confidence.

I honestly cannot thank you enough Angela, you’ve been fantastic right from the start. The advice you gave from the beginning, right through to dealing with all the paperwork and the court filled me with confidence that not only clearly are you a brilliant solicitor but that everything would get sorted and I could move forward with life.  You’ve been an absolute star Angela, I am truly thankful.

Angela was a dream to have on my side.

Angela assisted me in a very complicated and difficult case that had been going on for over a decade before Angela started working on it. I was reluctant to go down the legal route and it was a great emotional hurdle for me to do this. I enlisted the help of Angela, following an excellent recommendation.  Angela was a dream to have on my side. She was always very prompt, highly organised, professional and efficient. Angela’s written and oral communication was always so clear and she is a great balance of sensible, sensitive and sympathetic.  Angela also enlisted the help of my barrister and together they were a dream team working smartly on my behalf.  I very much appreciated being flanked by an excellent legal team at a time when I felt very weak by the difficult circumstances.  I am absolutely delighted with the result and that the matter has been concluded. The enormous relief I feel having that put behind me is tremendous. I am now enjoying my new beginning and new life. I’m truly grateful for all the legal help and the liberation I feel, as without it, I would still be bound and feeling trapped.  I would not hesitate to recommend Angela.

Thank you for getting me justice, mortgage free, debt free and financial security.

I can’t recommend Angela & Jill enough. I remember speaking to Jill in desperation feeling hopeless, trapped and bullied. They were not phased by my ex’s intimidating and unprofessional responses. Alongside my barrister, they helped me get more truth in 15 months than I’d had in 15 years of marriage. More importantly, they helped me get justice. They always answered emails in a timely manner. The fees were very reasonable. They helped me not only financially but emotionally every step of the way. They helped me get an extra £200,000.00 than I was offered. It was a fabulous result. The judge will always look at a person conduct and know who is the truthful one. When Karma needs a helping hand this is the team to ensure justice and fairness prevail. I now live happy and free and can enjoy the rest of my life thanks to them. They really specialise in cases which are awkward or where domestic abuse is involved. I cannot thank them enough. Highly recommended. Elaine, happily divorced.

Jill’s knowledge, support and advice were invaluable, and I always felt fully informed.

The services I received from Rucklidge’s made a very tricky and difficult time easier. Jill’s knowledge, support and advice were invaluable and I always felt well informed with the process. Jill is so easy to speak to and so down to earth; should I need a solicitor again I would have no hesitation in contacting Jill. I wholeheartedly recommend Rucklidge’s for a professional, dependable, open, honest and valuable service.

Her straight talking but warm style gave me confidence from an early stage.

Jill gave me great advice throughout the divorce process. Her straight talking but warm style gave me confidence from an early stage. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Jill to anyone in the same situation.

Thank you for giving me the encouragement and confidence to carry on.

Thank you for getting everything sorted out for me and for giving me the encouragement and confidence to carry on. It was a long slog but it’s all worked out well now. The girls are enjoying the garden and shopping for bedroom furniture and I have some space to work in at last! Thanks again.

Your kindness and patience really helped me.

Thanks again for all your help. Your kindness and patience really helped me as I couldn’t see a way I would have been able to get to the mediation without that help. I’m truly very grateful.

A big thank you to Claire for her time and patience with us whilst drawing up our Wills.

Just want to say a big thank you to Claire for her time and patience with us whilst drawing up our Wills. She has been so knowledgeable and answered all my questions even when I was asking for her to explain things again and again so we understood. Her patience never wavered.

Fantastic Friendly Service!

Alison provided a fantastic and friendly service.  She made me feel at ease and really took time to understand what i needed.  She kept me in the loop every step of the away.  She always responded efficiently and she is very friendly.  I would definitely recommend her to my friends and family.
