“I just wanted to thank you dearly for the help you kindly gave me. I sing your praises to everyone and recommend you on Facebook communities locally for all sorts and shall continue to do so. Your kindness gave me strength and your advice served me well.”
"I was particularly pleased with Claire Dyer. Very good at all aspects of her job."
“Knowing you were there on my side made such a difference. You have been brilliant throughout the process and have always given me clear and concise advice.”

“Very helpful & excellent service.”
“Blandy & Blandy managed my divorce and child custody arrangements/battle in 2016 and 2017. This involved going to Court several times over a year. The support from them was brilliant throughout and I would recommend them all in a heartbeat. In particular, Zoe Rose, Claire Dyer and Shashi Sachdeva were simply amazing.”
“The team were always professional, transparent, prompt, pro-active, supportive and compassionate throughout a very difficult and challenging process. I would happily approach them again in the future for their support. If you are considering support for a divorce or a legal battle, then this is the firm you want on your side. Even the magistrates were impressed by their work.”
“I have no hesitation in recommending you specifically and your practice.”
