Emily, thank you so much for all your help and the hard work you have put into making this run as smooth as possible for me. It's been a long time coming and I'm relieved I can finally put it all behind me. I can safely say I wouldn't hesitate to use you/Neves again if needed as you have really have been there through this all with me even going back to my first phone call with Beth.

In January 1867 Queen Victoria was less than half way through her 63 year reign. In the UK, the streets were full of horses. Gentlemen wore frock coats and wing collars whilst ladies sported voluminous skirts supported by hoops, petticoats, and or crinolines. There were no cars, no aeroplanes; no telephones and no computers. But what, you may ask, has this to do with business today?
Well, in Luton, a gentleman by the name of Walter Neve opened a solicitor’s office. Our firm, now called Neves Solicitors LLP, has offices in Milton Keynes, Luton and Harpenden, making us 150 years old.
However, it is not just the firm that is long established. At least one local family, the Cathcarts is able to proudly describe Neves as their ‘family solicitors’ for the past three generations. The Cathcarts have used Neves for both private and commercial property work on numerous occasions over the years. As Mrs Theresa Cathcart recalls; “Members of my family have used Neves for three generations. Their charm, politeness and efficiency combined with expertise in the latest aspects of law have meant that choosing Neves to conduct our legal business is our first and simplest choice.”
Heidi Fleming took over my divorce file in October 2020 and provided an excellent level of service with prompt and well explained communications to the outstanding issues that were required for agreeing the financial arrangements to have the Consent Order agreed by both parties. Since this time, Heidi was effective in completing the settlement to the point of decree absolute. In addition to the financial matters, Heidi provided very sound advice on child matters. Working with Heidi definitely helped take some of the practical stresses out of a very challenging time personally, when dealing with separating from my ex-wife by being so efficient.
