We know that we provide an outstanding level of service and support for our clients but don’t just take our word for it.

Here are a few of the testimonials that she’s received from those that she has worked with over the years:

I would like to take this opportunity to recommend Mena Ruparel to anyone seeking help with divorce or financial settlements.

Mena is calm and collected and has the ability to handle the most difficult of opposing solicitors and barristers with an assuredness that can only put you at your ease. Her Knowledge of the divorce laws is second to none. I have witnessed her in court helping the residing judges to work through difficult circumstances to provide a fair outcome for both parties.

I have recommended her to friends and acquaintances who are also grateful for her help.

Felicity Shedden

"For what was probably the most traumatic year of my life, you were able to give me the reassurance that the matter would be handled with proficiency and expertise to achieve the best outcome for me.

I found various stages, procedures and terminology quite confusing but you always explained things to me thoroughly and with clarity.

I always felt that you were fully in charge of the situation no matter how drawn out the other party tried to make it and you always responded to my emails and letters really quickly.

Now that I have come out the other side of this procedure and life is returning to normal, I am glad that I was your client and I believe that my faith in your ability was well justified. I would be happy to recommend your firm to handle divorce proceedings in the future."
Mrs G

"My case as you are aware of has not been an easy one. For that reason alone I was a bit scared at the time when I was looking for a solicitor. I have to say that although I had done some research online and had been impressed with your credentials, it was talking to you over the phone that provided me the satisfaction that I was making the right choice. A choice I did not regret for a moment afterwards. Right from the beginning your flexible approach, empathy and professional competence made me feel at ease and confident. You definitely helped make a most difficult transition in my life, easier. You tackled all the complexities in my case, proficiently and kept me in the loop always. For that I am extremely thankful to you. I highly recommend you"
Dr K

"I would unreservedly recommend Felicity Shedden as the service that I have recently received has been of the highest calibre. Felicity’s handling of very delicate medical details was both compassionate and yet highly professional."
Anne Barnicoat

"Felicity Shedden handled my divorce case which reached a successful conclusion for both parties in March 2010. She always provided me with a clear picture of the legal situation, best courses of action and range of likely outcomes throughout her time working on my case. Felicity also handled correspondence with the other side diligently and organised good barristers to represent me in both the Children Act and financial hearings. I found her easy to communicate with and overall I would recommend Felicity as an intelligent and capable lawyer."
Tim Cooper, Financial Journalist

"Felicity Shedden represented me during a very difficult divorce and custody case. At all times I felt that she completely understood the case offering superb advice all the way through and also supporting me through some extremely difficult situations both in the courtroom and over the phone. I would highly recommend her services."
Hilary Gadd

"I would like to thank you for your support and all the help that you have given me and my children. Suffering from 15 years of Domestic Violence, I did not know what to expect from my solicitor as I did not think that my case could come to a satisfactory outcome.

You stood by me and fought my case very passionately. Today, after over a year, I can happily say that due to your determination, I have got the best results possible from my case.

Me and my children are very happy and can now move on to a brighter future. We all owe our happiness to your hard work.”

"Felicity is a market leader within the sphere of the provision of family law services in the East Midland/East of England areas. She brings a detailed knowledge of the law, a passion for her job and unrivalled people skills to the profession.

Her practice encompasses all areas of family law, with a particular emphasis on financial provision. Her analysis of cases is exemplary and she always employs impeccable judgment to best represent her client's interests.

The acid test? I would happily instruct her to represent me, my family and friends."

Matthew Maynard, Barrister

"I cannot praise Felicity Shedden highly enough. Her consistently excellent work on my family's behalf, over a two year period, leaves me eternally grateful."
