Lucy is exactly the kind of person I needed on my side while going through a difficult divorce. When emotions were running high, Lucy’s steady and pragmatic demeanour shone through. I am eternally grateful to Lucy for everything she did for me throughout my divorce proceedings; nothing was ever too much.
