I just wanted to say a very heartfelt thank you to you Samantha. You were extremely professional and made the mediation a completely smooth and bearable process. I was apprehensive about achieving an agreement, and I am so amazed and relieved to have reached an agreement today. It is a wonderful weight lifted for me and I am so grateful.
From initial contact to the conclusion of the matter I was treated with respect and compassion. The skilful way that Samantha listened and communicated enabled me to trust and value the advice I was given, even when this was not necessarily what I wanted to hear.
Samantha was friendly and approachable but also incredibly professional. She gave very good advice, and kept me informed every step of the way. She made the difficult process of getting a divorce as painless and simple as possible for which I and my ex husband are very grateful for.
Samantha Miles has been excellent in the service provided and making me feel her most important client.
Samantha Miles of Warner Goodman has made the painful, difficult and often complex process of my divorce proceedings as easy as I can imagine them ever being possible to be. Her clear, comprehensive guidance and assistance walked me through every step and delivered a clean and amicable break between my partner and I. Warner Goodman, have been clear about costs and timings and have quite simply made this a problem that did not need to worry about. I would highly recommend their services to anyone looking for a professional yet empathetic guiding hand through the pains of a marital separation.
Please accept my heartfelt thanks for your advice over the last couple of years. You have been both wise and forthright and I would have been in a far worse position without your guidance. I am very grateful, and consider myself fortunate to have found you and your team. My thanks to Lauren as well.
Closure made easy! I met with Sam Miles to discuss a financial settlement and over the next two years, Sam navigated me along a pathway, which I found overwhelming and complex at times. Finally, I can move on, thank you to Warner Goodman & Sam Miles
