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."


Sara Jane Chorkley – Private Client

"We are now in our mid-sixties, and felt that this would be a good time to review our wills. Sara Jane Chorkley is friendly, knowledgeable and experienced, and she really helped us to ensure that our wills are now up-to-date and fully reflect our wishes. She was also very helpful in guiding us through inheritance tax issues and options."

Nicola Barrow, Family/Divorce

"Right from the very first time I contacted Donald Race and Newton, I found them to be polite, forthcoming and non-judgemental about my issues from start to finish. The family solicitor I had was Nicola Barrow and I would highly recommend her to anybody who needed expert advice on family and children issues. She made me feel at ease and very comfortable with all the appointments and the court process, which can be very daunting for anyone. My whole experience with the family courts was made a whole lot easier for myself because of the caring, down to earth and non-judgemental attitude of one of its finest solicitors. Thank you Nicola"
