‘I found Camilla through her website. She responded to my message within an hour via telephone. Her kind and caring nature came across immediately through the conversation and I knew this was the person I wanted to represent me at court. My case was complex and Camilla listened with great care and attention at the first meeting.
I had never been through the legal system on any front nor had I had solicitors/ barristers and all of a sudden I found myself in the position of a litigant in person. However, Camilla’s advice was clear, structured and above all honest. This gave me confidence in trusting her professional judgement.
I can honestly say this is the best decision I made due to the fact I had continuity throughout the entire case (nearly 2 years). Dealing with one person who knew the ins and outs of my case made me feel at ease as a single Mum who had recently given birth. Camilla’s emotional support, love, care, professionalism and advice gave me the courage and strength to carry on in times when I was ready to give up.
Camilla used up to date cases to refer to during my case and understands the law very well. Throughout the entire case, Camilla paid great attention to the smallest of details. She approached the entire case in a professional manner, promptly, efficiently, and with great care.
After 5 hearings, the outcome I desired was reached and this would have been virtually impossible without Camilla.
It is very difficult to find a decent barrister who is honest, trustworthy, hard working, professional and above all who actually cares. Camilla really is a rare gem and I feel privileged to have had such a personal represent me at court and someone who I now consider a close friend.
Camilla, from the bottom of my heart, thank you’
‘After contacting various local lawyers specialising in family law, I was disappointed in the lack of response and interest in my case. Eventually, I was given Camilla’s contact details and as soon as we spoke I knew she was the right person for me. From day one, she was professional, inspiring and caring which is exactly what I needed to persevere through a highly complicated divorce process spanning 2 years.
Camilla would respond in great depth and detail to any questions I might have within 24hrs, as well as informing me in advance of the next steps of the legal process.
Camilla genuinely cares about her clients and after being with me each step of the way, we achieved the desired result.’
‘Hi Camilla, I am so pleased to let you know that I am officially divorced now!!! The decree absolute arrived at the weekend. Thank you for all your help and support through a very difficult time. R. Xxx’
‘Thank you Camilla it took me a while to get there but I did it in the end !!! I am so grateful to you from our very first meeting last April to now because with your advice it gave me the strength to do what I knew I had to do and that initial meeting changed my life. I will never be able to thank you enough xxxxxx’
‘I was a victim of domestic abuse and suffering from complex PTSD as a result of the abuse. With all that entails, I entered the court arena to try and keep my children save and keep my abusive husband away from us. In my naivety, I thought everything will be straightforward and justice will be served. But due to the incompetence of my solicitors, and barristers and judges who cared more about finishing the hearing quickly so they could go home, I ended up with my injunction dismissed without leave to appeal and no direct contact with my children.
Some years later, and almost losing hope of finding a decent solicitor, my friend saw a poster in Tesco Watford about the legal advice clinic that Camilla holds there. So I emailed her and frankly, getting a reply back in the same day was already telling me that she would be someone I could rely on. I had never been a litigant in person before, but Camilla guided me through everything that I needed to do – no question was too silly to ask. From our first meeting, she has always been supportive, informative and very very well prepared. It may sound corny, but sometimes I get so overwhelmed with emotion from reading her position statements because it really shows how much she understands and believes in me and how much of her own heart she has put into it.
I am forever grateful to her for helping me regain a relationship with my children, for being so professional yet caring, for presenting a strong front for me, for making me laugh when things get tense, and for being a friend.
I cannot recommend Camilla enough. She will be behind you 100% if not more, she will be honest with you even if it might not be something you want to hear, but more than that, she will work with you to come up with another solution.’
‘Camilla’s information was passed on to me by a client who had been in touch with her briefly. The client was very impressed by Camilla’s prompt and thorough response. I passed on Camilla’s details to couple of other clients and each one of them had very positive things to say about her dedication and hard work as well as her genuineness and down to earth attitude. They described her as very supportive. I finally spoke to Camilla and she was very friendly and warm and I very quickly understood what my clients were talking about.
Camilla and I decided to do few workshops to empower women and men who were going through abuse by informing them of their legal rights so that they can help themselves to certain extent without having to pay extortionate solicitor fees, for example how to obtain a non molestation order without going through a solicitor. We had 2 workshops which were very successful and Camilla was very professional and exceeded expectations. She was very informative and engaging and she displayed astounding knowledge about the topics she was presenting. She is obviously very well versed in her field and my clients gained a lot of knowledge and they were truly grateful to her. I would like to add that Camilla carried out both workshops for free and very kindly donated her time and energy and she was very passionate about her subject. As a professional, I am very grateful to Camilla for her warmth, friendliness, compassion and empathy towards my clients, as a lot of them would have been vulnerable and need to be advised properly and honestly by their barrister. She has demonstrated that she cares deeply about her work and her clients and as a professional I have deep respect her for her values, honesty, devotion and hard work. I wish her all the best, she is very trust worthy and she has made very positive contributions to people’s life and I am sure, she will carry on doing so. Keep up the brilliant work you do. All the best Camilla.’

I wanted to say thank you so much for yesterday, I can’t believe it has all come to an end and I’m still in shock that I will be able to finally move on with my life and not have this hanging over my head for another year. I was looking at my son today and couldn’t believe that we will have our own home, scary as that is, it got me very emotional. It was incredibly that we were able to settle and you took all of this on in such crazy short notice. You are a fantastic lady and what you do for women is so incredibly valuable. It’s a life back not just money and when you’ve faced tough times it means even more.
Thank you so much.’
