I just wanted to highlight the excellent professional and expert service and as equally important care and compassion you showed throughout.

Thank you to Linda and Kimberley for providing a fantastic service and they both were very professional. They both were very very helpful, understanding and answered all my questions concerning my divorce. Their communication is best they always responded promptly. Many thanks for all your help and support. All the best for the future.

Many thanks for all your help on this. I don’t think that I appreciated at the start of the process quite what a challenge the divorce would be – I now do realise and am still recovering but am definitely coming out the other side. Your advice was invaluable in terms of ensuring I stayed focused and realistic.

I cannot thank you enough for all your hard work. It has been life-changing for me and my family. You have literally become a household name with us because you have been such a significant part of our journey.
You will always be my first point of call if I ever need to revisit this, or any other legal matter and I will recommend you and Miles & Partners without hesitation. I hope this reflects how happy I am with the advice, work and outcomes of my case.

“The service I have received from this law firm has been fantastic! Especially Michelle Uppal who has been extremely efficient, helpful and very professional, I would certainly recommend her as a great family lawyer!”
“I am very impressed with the client focus of the family team, whether the client is a city lawyer or someone coming into contact with the law for the first time. They will always make sure the client is aware of all the options available to them, whether that is mediation, collaborative law, or traditional litigation and they will provide advice and support to the client every step of the way.
In addition, they have particular expertise in complex child care cases and are expert in supporting vulnerable clients facing the prospect that their child may be taken into care by the local authority.
Miles & Partners is truly focussed on quality and was instrumental in setting up a small group of like-minded firms, which meets regularly to exchange ideas, provide mutual support and share good practice. They are a great example of a progressive law firm.”

“I would not hesitate to refer clients who need expert family and matrimonial advice to Miles & Partners matrimonial team because I know they will receive a first class service and client care second to none. Miles & Partners geographical position, on the edge of the City, is perfect for clients who need a flexible and swift service that fits with their day and working patterns.”
“I was first introduced to Miles & Partners through one of the partners in my firm. He suggested that one of its partners, Michelle Uppal, combined a comprehensive knowledge of family law and an extremely humane approach to dealing with clients who, because of the family law problems they are facing, necessarily find themselves in one of the most traumatic periods of their lives.
The very first client I referred was a foreign national, who was going through a difficult dissolution of his civil partnership. This was a particularly stressful situation since, in order to preserve his right to remain in the United Kingdom under European law, on the basis of his civil partnership with a European national, it was essential that the timing of the dissolution be such as to ensure that my friend acquired a ‘retained right of residence’ in the United Kingdom.
Those representing his partner were extremely combative in their approach. Michelle excelled in every aspect of the case:- 1) She quickly mastered the complicated nuances of the European immigration issues at stake. 2) Her warm and humane, yet at the same time highly professional, approach brought piece of mind to [her client]. 3) She proved masterful in her negotiating skills and ultimately defused a potentially inflammatory situation.
My colleagues and I, all of whom work in immigration law with a particular emphasis on family-related cases, have consistently experienced the same high quality of service from everyone at MIles & Partners. They have universally been able to understand the practicalities of the immigration issues at stake and to develop and execute effective strategies, which often involve the need to conciliate effectively when the other side all too often seems only to want to escalate contention.
Our practice works exclusively in a non-contentious area of the law and, all too often in our experience, firms specialising in more contentious areas have seemed all too willing to pick a fight for the sake of fighting, without giving a thought to the best possible negotiated conciliatory solution for all parties involved. Miles & Partners have, therefore, seemed a breath of fresh air to us as a firm which applies common sense in developing its strategies and consistently achieves excellent results through this approach.”
