Phil Cowell

From Mr H

 

Anne Thomson is a woman of integrity and vast experience. As a U.S. Citizen married to a British citizen, my divorce was complex and difficult. With assets in multiple countries, legal actions in two countries in both civil and criminal courts, and a spouse who was devious and difficult, Anne kept the case moving forward and assisted me both with professional knowledge, clear explanations of the English legal system, and much needed emotional support.

 Anne worked tirelessly, and she and her staff showed outstanding professionalism and competence. She is a straight-talker who is capable, diligent and meticulous. I am grateful that I found the perfect solicitor, and I highly recommend her for anyone looking for the best legal counsel available.
