My clients love what I do
“I thoroughly recommend Churchers solicitors. I recently had a family case to deal with and Beverley Gent from the Southsea office took the stress out of the situation. A family case can be daunting but Beverley was knowledgable, helpful and empathetic throughout the whole process. I would not hesitate in contacting Churchers again should I ever need to in the future. Thanks again Beverley!”
“Absolutely fantastic service from Beverley Gent. Dealing with a family case can be daunting but Beverley was knowledgeable, helpful and empathetic throughout the whole process”
“My mother recommended Churchers for Family Law as she had such a positive outcome to her court case. I felt Beverley was very efficient and handled it all in such a friendly manner. She always made sure I understood everything discussed, I can’t thank her enough for getting the best possible outcome for me and my son, would highly recommend”
