“Christopher Goodwin has acted for me in relation to my matrimonial affairs over the past eight years in what was perhaps a difficult and trying case with much at stake. Over the course of this time, I have come to realise that the advice given by Chris was impressively accurate to the extent that his predictions on outcomes always became reality. This is a characteristic very rarely found and comes only with the right experience. His attention to detail is second to none and he always acts with all due urgency when circumstance dictate. Chris is always approachable and acts with the highest integrity. I would have no hesitation in recommending Chris to anyone who requires a good family solicitor.”
“My case was complex because it involved both a family court and the court of protection and I am grateful that Peacock & Co was able to field appropriate personnel and recommend barristers when needed, sometimes at very short notice. In particular I would thank Partner Chris Goodwin for taking the case on and managing it to a successful conclusion.”
