"I have used JA Hughes since 2016 for family matter cases. Bridget Tapfuma took on my case after working closely with my previous solicitor. The legal advice that I have been given has always been very honest and she has been supportive at all times. She has gone beyond her duty on many occasions but in particular in regards to the children. When required she has been proactive in sending emails and phone calls. She has always been at the end of the phone if I ever needed an update or some advice. She has made sure special measures have been put in place for me I. E vulnerable witness suite, separate waiting room and security mesures and made me feel secure at all times. Whilst keeping child focused. I have now had a final order from family court which if it wasn't for all her hard work I would of never got that outcome. I can't thank you enough and appreciate all your advice and support. I would highlying recommend Bridget Tapfuma for any family law matters." Ms E - April 2018
