Laura is an approachable advocate who will listen and advise on legal matters in a clear and understandable way. She’s always keen to ensure that everyone that she advises, assists and signposts to any alternative agencies, understand the proceedings which can be extremely emotive for the family.

In advising professional clients Laura ensures that they understand the reasoning behind decisions being made and advises them fully about the decisions made and the range of outcomes available.

“I have always received professional representation at what has been stressful times. I have been listened to and supported with kindness and understanding. The work ethic and responsiveness to my needs has always been above and beyond what I expected. I would have no hesitation in using their services again and highly recommend Switalskis if you are seeking professional and competent services.”
