Client Feedback

“stevensdrake were an absolute diamond dealing with my case, I can't thank you enough!”
“I could not have made it through the past 1 ½ years without stevensdrake help. They were always on hand to help and guide me through a life-changing process. It was a pleasure to have them on my side”
"I utilised the services of Kamal Vasdev in relation to the sudden breakdown of my marriage. Kamal helped me successfully navigate the complexities of a situation involving false allegations to Police/Family Court, an application for leave to permanently remove our children abroad and a complex financial settlement. Kamal was effective at helping me separate the emotional aspects of the situation allowing me to ensure our efforts remained child focused. Ultimately we achieved the outcome that was right for the children, even though I initially thought would have been impossible. As a full-time single father who retained a live with order in my favour and a fair financial settlement I could not have asked for a better result.
"I was always kept up to date on proceedings and staff very helpful with communications."
"Great timely advice and professional. I felt that I had all the information I needed to make my decisions."
"Kamal did a very good job of sorting out numerous difficulties with my case. And gave expert advice to resolve things."
