“Watson Thomas Ltd were extremely professional, discreet and supportive in dealing with my divorce. My solicitor, Kate McCarthy was very understanding, professional and her clear instructions made the stressful process of a divorce more bearable. I would strongly recommend Watson and Thomas in all areas of Family Law."
