"We have recently endured a 14 month battle through the courts to obtain more contact with my children. (I am the father). Usual story, children wanted to, so did I, but a stumbling block in a financially motivated mother who Clive managed wonderfully well and dedicated a lot of time and patience with me including multiple hearings, phone calls and such alike. Clive’s dedication was great and we got there in the end. Professional always and always rang back when he said he would. Put good arguments across that were reasonable and worked the system he is given very well."
