Hi, I used your services a long time ago (around 8 to 9 years ago), and was very happy with everything from Robert Routh. I made some inquiries again recently, and again got many recommendations for Robert – from various different people. This was really encouraging to hear, so I am now engaging his services again. Thanks for all your help.

My solicitor Robert Routh has helped me draft an agreement and respond to the other party’s solicitor. He has been reasonable and taken prompt action to address my questions…Really appreciate his diligent work and support!

Please accept my sincere thanks for your professional handling of my recent family law matter. You provided a very focused, ethical and decisive service.

I have been extremely fortunate to have experienced professional and supportive lawyers handling my case. Its been a very emotional journey and I couldn’t have done it without the professional staff at FGD especially Kasey Fox.

Thanks, Sarah Keenan for everything you have achieved for me, especially, of course, today which was truly stunning given the catastrophes that filled my mind… You and … made a brilliant and powerful team.

A remarkable result. FGD is an extraordinarily talented company.

The team, Frank, Millie etc were kind, gentle and humane. They treated me with respect and care the whole way through my family court case. I owe them so much. I feel like they are part of the family rather than my lawyers. Can’t say how much we appreciate everything you have done for us!
