Peer review:

I have worked with Claire Tollefson at Cripps for a number of years. I consider Claire to be an excellent solicitor within the field of complex matrimonial finance work. Normally this type of work would be dealt with by someone far more senior; Claire’s competency within this area of law belies the fact she is far more junior. On each occasion, she has instructed me she has prepared the case extremely well: the client has been properly advised about the realistic outcomes of their case and if steps need to be taken to secure a particular position on behalf of the client, Claire will have done this. I cannot speak highly enough of her.

Private client review:

In summary, Claire acted in a professional manner and was always striving to get the best outcome for me. There were times when I’d have liked a response sooner however, I do appreciate and understand that I wasn’t her only client and others sometimes had to take priority. I would have no hesitation in recommending Claire and her company should the need arise in the future. Claire has a great level of empathy but remains professional at all times.

Claire knows how to get the best for her clients. She has a great eye for the important details in a case and has a real skill of being able to plan tactically when it comes to litigation. She is approachable, gives great advice and is a pleasure to work with. Claire’s hard work makes a real difference for her clients.
