Sarah Anderson has supported me through the family court system. Sarah has represented me on my last two hearings (the last one being our final hearing) It has been an awful journey but having Sarah supporting me has helped enormously. Sarah helped me get the best outcome for my daughter. Sarah is thorough and her attention to detail is exemplary. Sarah is calm and accurate and cross examines well. I have used various Barristers during my journey and by fay she has been the most supportive Barrister i have used. Sarah will go above and beyond to help you and put you at ease. I would not hesitate to use Sarah in the future if needed.

I just want to thank Sarah personally for your help, without it i do not think i would have got the outcome i did.
