What clients say about me
“I wanted to take this opportunity to personally thank you for your excellent support and legal advice. You were an excellent solicitor, legal advisor and support through a very traumatic process. Your skills as my counsel proved to be first class, borne out by the outcome that I received.”
"...the quality and depth of support I received from Simon and his team was nothing short of excellent. The considered measure and timeliness of Simon’s advice was excellent steering me through the divorce process with accuracy, clarity and compassion at all stages of the process...Leeds Day will be my first choice should I ever need legal representation in the future, and have no issue with recommending your services to family and friends."
