What others say

“Mari provided a first-class service across the board. Very personable, listened to our needs as a client, provided a clear strategy and way forward. Always made me feel that she was about resolution. I cannot fault the service and would definitely recommend to others.”

 “Mari was consistently excellent when communicating with me – she had clearly listened to my views and wishes every step of the way. It was refreshing to receive regular, clear and progressive updates from Mari.”

“It was clear that Mari was all about resolution. I cannot express how important it was dealing with a lawyer who is genuinely focused on resolving issues rather than creating or exacerbating a ‘blocking’ mentality.”
