"Ruth Harris and her team, especially Hannah Dilks, provided excellent professional advice and service, over a protracted divorce settlement, enabling financial closure with a fair outcome for both parties. I would recommend both Ruth and PCB to anyone in the future requiring legal help and advice. Many thanks again to all."Richard
"I dealt with Ruth Harris throughout and she was excellent. I found that I could trust her completely for help, guidance, advise and even a friendly ear. She made a very difficult process more bearable and I cannot thank her enough."Chris
"I needed some help advice from a solicitor. I called PCB who were very efficient and friendly on the phone. Staff assured me that a solicitor would be in touch. Almost immediately I was contacted by Ruth and given very good sound advice. Ruth was very friendly and extremely knowledgeable. I was given the advice over the phone and then in writing via an email. Ruth provided me with her direct contact number and email address which made a huge difference to me. It allowed me to get instant answers. But the most important point I want to make is that all the staff were very friendly and approachable and the biggest point is that they and Ruth have spoken in a plane and easy manner rather than the usual way where none of the advise makes any sense. I would most definitely use PCB again. Can’t fault their service and approach."Mike
