“Difficult divorce. I approached Mr Charles Brown, the lead of the family law at Jones Whyte in Glasgow, as my divorce become very complicated due also to a criminal charge involved. At my first appointment with him I felt very nervous and insecure. English is not my first language and explaining to him what I was going through was challenging due to my anxiety as well. Nevertheless, from the very first moment I sat at the table with Charles, I was captured by his calm and professional attitude. Not only he is an excellent listener, but his high level of empathy made me feel understood and in safe hands from the very beginning. In a very straight forward and simple way he explained to me the options available. He is always available for follow up and further explanation if needed. He is always in charge, shows initiative and his approach to the legal matter is always factual and objective. I would highly recommend Mr Charles Brown, his valuable assistant Ms Jamie Speirs and the rest of his team.” Trust Pilot Review
