    What Do Our
    Clients Say?

    "I went to Howells for representation in a family matter. I was very anxious and felt overwhelmed with it all but Liz Forrest was amazing from beginning to end! She was very professional, knowledgeable and meticulous with her work and was extremely approachable and friendly. She is honest and kept me informed at every stage. Liz made the most stressful time of my life bearable and I would recommend her to anyone going through family court. The staff at Howells were also brilliant - very welcoming, friendly and approachable."

    Family Client

    "Going through a divorce is never easy but I cannot praise Alyson at Howells enough. Through a long, complicated and challenging divorce process, she managed the legal process with calmness, empathy and professionalism. I would recommend her and Howells to anyone in a similar situation."

    Divorce Client

    “Divorce is never nice. When you are in the thick of it and cannot see the wood for the trees, you need people around you who are experienced, professional and also sympathetic to your needs. People who can guide you along the way. Alyson Siddall and her team were every bit of this. Nobody can prepare you for the stresses and anxiety most people going through a divorce will endure. Having a friendly, straight talking shoulder to cry on, with a clear path to an exit is key. Professional to the end, but equally a joy to talk things though with. Many thanks again Alyson. I hope I never go though another ordeal like this, but if I do, I know where to come.”
