What our clients say about us

"Anne has represented me on four occasions, twice in matrimonial settlements, a financial matter, and a child residency case. Her knowledge of matrimonial law and understanding of all family matters coupled with her tireless work ethic sets her apart from her peers. She has been totally professional in every situation and has always achieved a successful outcome on my behalf."


Respondent Husband
"I have been advised by Rita and her team for around two years in a complex family law matter. Rita's understanding of the nuances of the case was exceptional and her advice was honest from the start. Her training, knowledge and expertise of the family legal system shone through and were complemented by her professional and courteous attitude. Rita's realistic advice given at the start of proceedings helped manage my expectations and bring the case to a positive conclusion for me and my son. I would highly recommend Rita and her team to anyone needing family or child-related legal advice."


Complex Children Act Matter

"You are fabulous, I only wish I had found you sooner. We talk of alchemists but rarely in the same breath as solicitors but you are the rare individual where this is possible. To provide such a professional, intelligent and genuine service with such a moral and child-centred ethos has been life affirming. My case was historic, complicated and emotional but after years of confusion there is finally some order. With that chaos now gone, there is finally space to step forwards with greater confidence."

Mother, Complex private Children Act proceedings

"LGFL was recommended to me by a friend and I have not been disappointed. The professionalism and knowledge has been invaluable in my position. Every angle and situation has been viewed and advised on. From working with the partners to the wonderful and patient staff in the office, LGFL has been a real stabiliser in what has been a very difficult time; the whole office has been very discrete and approachable. I would not hesitate in recommending them to friends and have done so already."

Petitioner wife/ Financial case


"After being recommended to LGFL, I had Rita Gupta to represent me. Rita helped me through difficult Divorce and child care proceedings. Rita attended a multiple of court hearings with me, not just for my financial settlement but for my children too which included a full CAFCASS report. Rita has a very professional work ethic and took control where control was needed for the benefit of not only myself, but my 3 children too. I would recommend her and her firm LGFL to anyone in a similar situation to myself."

Petitioner Wife


“I have been dealing with LGFL for over 12 months, after a friend recommended them. I have been most impressed by Anne Leiper’s attention to detail and prompt actions in all aspects of her contact with me. She has also recommended a barrister with whom we are working on the case.

As my first foray into any kind of litigation, the experience, whilst a difficult one to deal with, has been eased by the advice received. Fees are sent promptly, are well structured and easy to understand. I have no hesitation in recommending LGFL to others in a similar predicament.”
