TESTIMONIALS

What our clients say...

  • "Aberdein Considine‚Äôs family law team is headed up by Ruth Aberdein, whose particular expertise lies in high-value separation and divorce cases, as well as in drafting pre-nuptial agreements for individuals with significant assets at stake. The firm is experienced in complex child cases, concerning child abduction, residency and contact arrangements, and allegations by one or both parties of abusive behaviour towards the children or spouse."

  • "Over the course of my interaction with Aberdein Considine I met regularly with the lawyers from the practice. Within a practice covering all aspects of law, I was provided with a specialist solicitor in family law who took the time to understand my case and at every stage, provided me with clear feedback and guidance on taking my case forward to a successful conclusion. The key thing for me was that I was confident that I had top quality advice in my corner throughout the process."
