    Even though going through a divorce is a tricky situation, Gilva dealt with my case with professionalism and empathy. Her advice was second to none, and she was always right. The biggest help for me was when the other party started to get antagonistic and used what I would call bullying tactics to get me to do what they wanted, Gilva helped me remain calm and used her extensive legal knowledge to put them back in their place using facts not emotion.

    Very grateful to Lidia who was excellent. She felt like a friend during this, and is very intelligent and skilled. I was anxious that my divorce wouldn’t turn into an expensive battle, and Lidia’s calm, factual advice ensured this. I will have no hesitation in recommending her, and Tisshaws to friends and colleagues
