What Our Clients Say...
Jeff Botterill is a highly experienced and technically skilled McKenzie Friend with experience at all levels of court, including appeal. Jeff's knowledge of case law and court procedure is impressive. Such knowledge is essential in more complex cases, as is an ability to help construct effective, fact based and child centered arguments. In technical areas of law such as leave to remove, Jeff's name readily comes to mind as someone I can recommend with confidence. I am often asked if I can recommend a McKenzie Friend to assist a parent or grandparent in court, and Jeff Botterill is someone whose name I have no hesitation in putting forward.
I have just concluded 14 months of litigation which I would not have managed without the invaluable insight and knowledge that Colin possesses.
Having previously had a contact order in place my contact was stopped due to malicious allegations being made against me. I contacted Colin for advice and we set out on a long journey which culminated this last week.
During the 14 months of litigation Colin held my hand every step of the way helping me to navigate the numerous reports and interviews with Cafcass and Social Services. Colin also guided me through a Finding of Fact hearing listed for a whole day after which no findings were against me.
Throughout all the ups and downs Colin has been there for me day and night whenever I have needed him and I cannot thank him enough for all the support he has given me.
I no longer consider Colin as just somebody I turn to for advice, but a true friend, thank you.
Thank you so much to Colin once again for all the help and advice that he gave me.
We are now a happy re-United family I never dreamed possible. I didn't understand the court process, I cannot thank him enough for re uniting my family.
He was helping me write statements and filling in court forms until late at night and put up with my lack of IT knowledge, he is a wonderful guy, cannot thank him enough for what he has done.
Calling Family Law Decisions was the best decision I ever made. I was in my third year of court cases and had used barristers for previous court appearances but was given poor advice and always felt disappointed, questioning which "side" they were working for. Two days before I was due in court (again), I rang Jeff Botterill and immediately, after having chatted at length about my court history, I felt a huge sense of relief knowing that I could now put my future legal battles in the capable hands of Jeff and his colleague Colin Brealey.
I have had the pleasure of working with Jeff and Colin, both highly knowledgeable and professional, they helped me remain calm under extremely difficult circumstances, without them supporting me in the background with all the court statements and by my side in court, I would have fallen apart. Their ongoing support has been overwhelming and this type of first class service is something you do not get using a firm of solicitors. I feel indebted to you both, thank you.
My advice to anybody looking at this website, pick up the phone, it will be your best decision that you have ever made too.
