“Great firm for professional and friendly advice. I highly recommend Michelle Uppal.”
“Highly recommend Michelle Uppal if you have any family law issues. She always returns emails and calls promptly, even when I bugged her on her mobile phone.
Miles & Partners have represented me for over 3 years on and off and have been nothing but helpful and given me straight advice. All paid off in the end and I got what was best for everyone involved and I am happy.
They were highly recommended by friend who works in a top law firm and I would not go anywhere else.”
An impressive family team that is doing good quality work with professionalism and sensitivity.

“Without exception, everyone in the firm has dedication to their clients that is second to none. Many of their cases involve serious issues and they approach them with empathy and compassion and spend as much time with the clients as is needed. In my experience the gift of time is not one many firms are willing to give. Many of their clients are children and/ or are extremely vulnerable and they always make whatever allowances are required.
Miles and Partners always have the ability to inject new vigour into every case. Their motivation is both rare and inspiring. Coupled with their clear passion for the system, job and their clients they all have a sharp knowledge of the law and apply it accordingly. When instructed by them it is clear that they have full grasp of all the issues and their preparation of the case simply cannot be faulted.
Likewise when appearing against them as opponents, they conduct themselves with charismatic fairness whilst never faltering from the task of vigorously fighting for the interests of their clients.
The family courts would be much poorer place without them, both in terms of their personal presence and the assistance they give to judges and the family justice system as a whole.”
“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 have the deepest appreciation and respect for Kate Hammond and her colleagues, and their knowledge about legislation, domestic violence, mental health and children’s developmental stages.
I have worked with Kate when interviewing children. Kate is fully aware of how to approach children and deliver a message at a child’s level of understanding and in a child-friendly manner. Kate is equally skilled in speaking to the parties, in a balanced and fair manner, presenting a neutral message and making sure that they understand her role, as a child’s solicitor, always bearing in mind child’s best interests.
Kate has impressed me in terms of her professional courtesy shown to the parties, her ability to stay focused on the key issues, her ability to challenge lack of parental insight and her ability to effect prolonged engagement with the parties to promote a positive outcome on the case.
Kate Hammond is highly skilled in representing the interests of the children and other vulnerable client groups in front of the Courts, as well as a robust legal advisor, helping and supporting me to make the best and safest recommendations for the children in my work.”
