Terina is a long-standing member of Resolution. She will encourage a non confrontational approach to family problems where possible. However her objective is to achieve the best outcome for her client.
Here’s what some of her clients say:
‘I have known Terina for over 10 years on a professional level as well as personal. I can confirm that she is a woman of great integrity and is extremely dedicated to her work. She has always deployed an impressive level of efficiency and consistency. She has managed my divorce Proceedings with an exemplary success and I have and would recommend her services above and beyond anybody’s else’. (Isabelle Chanel UK)
‘Terina has supported and advised me through a complex and acrimonious separation. Terina clarified the legal complexities of my case and explained them to me in a clear and concise manner. Her legal expertise helped me through a difficult process. Terina is professional, knowledgeable and sensitive to the stress of the emotional aspects of separation. I would have no hesitation in recommending Terina’.
‘Terina has represented me in family matters for several years and i have always found her to be a big help. The family court system is a complicated minefield of protocol and procedures which, without Terina’s steady hand at the helm, would have been incredibly difficult to navigate. She is quick to give me her thoughts on potential outcomes or chance of success. She is good at managing client’s expectations. I could have used different solicitors for different cases had we wanted to, but have found Terina to be more than just a solicitor. She would be a tough act to follow if I were to ever instruct anybody else. It’s not often that I would say a professional representative couldn’t be replaced but I wouldn’t feel so confident of success with any other solicitor’.
