Claire's recent client feedback

Balanced advice...

“Claire was entirely professional, calm, with totally balanced advice…I have left her Office not just relieved that my case is satisfactorily resolved, but with the biggest smile on my face! I have absolutely no hesitation in highly recommending Claire Andrews.”


Kind, firm and direct...

“It was a very dark time for me, and I really appreciated your kindness, firmness and direct advice. You were a positive guiding light in a very confused and sad time. I felt lucky to have a solicitor who was sharp, clever, professional but also compassionate.”


Professional and Sympathetic...

"Claire was very professional and sympathetic during a very testing and stressful time during my divorce. Her advice was first class. I would highly recommend her”

A Lambert

Excellent service...

“Claire provided an excellent service. She is naturally considerate and practical and helped me to understand the situation and likely outcome of my matter from the outset, which very much helped the process. I would recommend her to a friend in a similar situation to mine without hesitation”

M Jones

Practical and professional advice...

“The help and care received from Claire Andrews whilst going through my divorce has been fantastic. She has been supportive through a very difficult time. She has listened patiently and taken time to understand the issues that are most important to me and my daughter. She has offered practical as well as professional legal advice and I have not hesitated to follow her advice. I can’t recommend Osbornes highly enough.”
