‘Julia Buckingham was wonderful throughout, she was kind and helpful offering excellent advice and really listened to me and was able to make recommendations which were the right way forward for me as an individual and my family. She had an excellent secretary supporting her work and I am very grateful to them both. With Julia handling my divorce it made a difficult, stressful and upsetting time very much more bearable. My ex-husband and I remain on good terms which I feel has definitely been assisted by the collaborative process.‘
