Nicola Rushton was very efficient and knowledgeable but also sensitive and understanding to what I was going through with my mental health. She got me through this divorce and I am truly grateful.

I was going through a divorce and required help with a financial agreement with my ex partner. Forbes solicitors were fantastic with how quick they arranged everything, reminded me when documents had to be returned. Assisted me with the form filling when I was unsure. Easy to contact and responded very quickly. I was really pleased with the overall service.
