    Michelle is also mindful of the emotional aspects of relationship breakdowns and uses a hand in hand approach to guide clients through difficult times.


    "Michelle is by far the best solicitor I have ever dealt with. I have been in and out of court with my ex-husband for years now. He paid dearly for what he believed to be the highest level of representation and not one of his solicitors were a match for Michelle. Her knowledge, professionalism, confidence and determination resulted in an outcome that I never would have imagined possible. Michelle's representation has been unfailingly exceptional and I couldn't be more grateful"

    “Thank you Michelle once again for your tremendous help, understanding and kindness throughout. You have been my strength and I am so very grateful to you.” 

    “She is highly efficient, quick to react and extremely supportive whilst also being objective and reasonable. An exceptional matrimonial lawyer”

    "From the very beginning Michelle was never anything but understanding, honest and professional.  I found the divorce a very emotionally draining experience but Michelle was always there, even if it was a quick text to update me followed by an in-depth email, phone call or letter. A divorce is not a pleasant experience but I don’t think I could have found anyone better than Michelle to guide me through the process.  I couldn’t thank her and all the staff at HCB Solicitors enough."

    "As my divorce settlement is finally over I wanted to let you know how fantastic Michelle has been throughout the whole process. From the first time we met to the final hearing, the outcome of which I was very happy with, Michelle has been a great support. She has handled everything with a caring, thorough and appropriately firm way. I have recommended her to friends and family already and will do so in the future."

    • Her no-nonsense attitude and diligent, thorough approach ensures that she remains a favourite
