Testimonials

Nicola Barrow, Family/Divorce

"As a gay man, I felt rather apprehensive about appointing a solicitor to act on my behalf following the breakdown of my 8 year relationship as I always envisioned the legal profession as being rather right-wing, stuffy and unapproachable.

This was certainly not the case when I was introduced to the Family Services Department of Donald Race & Newton who did not bat an eyelid when I explained my situation.

I was lucky enough to be referred to Nicola Barrow who acted on my behalf. I had no hesitation in recommending Donald Race & Newton’s family services to a friend who also found Nicola to be of great assistance, and would to anyone else seeking legal advice on family matters."

Nicola Barrow, Family/Divorce

"Nicola Barrow is a tenacious empathetic family lawyer. She achieved a wonderful outcome for my youngest daughter and I. Nicola grasped a complex set of circumstances and background issues rapidly and responded on my behalf in a truly timely and professional manner. Nicola fought my corner when I didn’t have the will to carry on and supported me through a very troubled legal process. I hope I never find myself in such a position again, but if I ever have any family issues in the future, or indeed am asked to recommend somebody, Nicola Barrow, and her team at DRN, are really first class. I think she, in particular, goes the extra mile. You sense from the outset that she believes in you and wants the best outcome for your child."
