I will recommend you to my friends and family (should it ever arise that they are in need) and I will let them know the professional manner in which you conducted yourself and had my child's best interests at heart.
It was a difficult step for me to think in legal terms towards the father of my children, but it is also difficult to be financially and physically cut off from your home. When my fear was greatest, I came to you. I was not a very keen participant and was quickly overwhelmed by the process, even in light of the excellent advice, I didn't want to carry it through. Regardless of all that, I found my lawyer and all the staff working at Paterson and Dowding, whether I spoke to them on the phone or in person, to be courteous, compassionate and kind... (not what the movies tell us about lawyers at all). It has lifted my faith and my heart to have met you all, that part was a pleasure.
I have had the pleasure of dealing with Craig Taylor and the staff of Paterson and Dowding since October 2014. I have been profoundly impressed with the level of professionalism and efficiency of this firm. My Family Court matter has created very complex issues compared with routine divorce cases. My limited understanding of law has allowed me to appreciate the degree of aptitude that Craig Taylor has developed in his experience.
Paterson and Dowding is recommended to anyone unfortunate enough to require representation in the area of Family Law.
