Kate’s approach with her clients is honest and fair. She is regarded as very approachable and empathetic.

I have to compliment Hart Reade for the service and support they have provided in resolving and filing my consent order with my ex-wife. I would highly recommend Kate Lacey and her team for their prompt and professional conduct in guiding me in the right direction to achieve the end result. I would highly recommend them.

We cannot thank Kate enough for all her hard work, professionalism, knowledge and guidance through what has been a very stressful time. Always a delight to meet with Kate face to face or speak on the phone. She always had time for us and her advice has been invaluable. Everything about this service was excellent and without doubt would use her again if we needed to and certainly have and will recommend her to others.

Kate was very approachable, honest and practical assessing my needs and ways to move forward in a sensible manner with a view to keeping costs to a minimum.
