I can't recommend Soulla Kokkinos enough for her knowledge and advice during what was a difficult separation, I initially used Sternberg Reed 4 years ago and after that I spent the last year representing myself as I had learnt a lot and it seemed I could handle it, until my case was escalated to a level I no longer felt comfortable.
I went back to Sternberg Reed and they represented me perfectly in the very short time we had to prepare and I could not be happier with the result. I am sure they are great at other things but if you are a father and you are having problems with access to your children I doubt you will find better representation at this price.SoliDion
