  • The service Jeff provided me in the very difficult situation, was second to none. I may have been paying for a service but I feel indebted to Jeff. – A very positive result for both of my kids.
    – Mr P. (Greater Manchester)
  • Result! Jeff helped me to win my Final Hearing so my daughter can now come and stay at my house. Straight talking and knowledgable he was better than my previous barrister and around a quarter of the price. I wish I had known about McKenzie Friends a year ago and would recommend Jeff to any father going through the slow pain that is the UK family court system.
    – Mr S. (Bristol)
  • Jeff, your experience of the English Family Justice System is second to none and you have been invaluable in helping me achieve 50/50 contact for my daughter. Thank you very much for all your help and advice.
    – Mr B. (London)

I highly recommend Jeff Botterill to anyone involved in family court matters. His ultra-sharp advice proved to be very helpful.

I was particularly amazed how good he was at multi-tasking whilst I was cross-examing: he took accurate notes, prompted new questions and drafted submissions, all at the same time and equally well.

Representing myself for the first time at a full-day hearing was emotionally difficult, but his help was reassuring and caling. Thank you Jeff!
