   compassionate and understanding manner. Throughout the process, Nicki acted promptly, giving me choices and options which always
   left me feeling I was the driving seat."

   Many Thanks, Paul

   It was very reassuring to have Nicola and her team working through the Settlement process at a very uncertain time for me.
   She negotiated an agreement which gave me the time to arrange the finances without having to resort to selling my home which was the
   priority. Everything went through the courts without a hitch. "

   Both professional and exceptionally knowledgeable in her field I feel fortunate to have had her expertise and support through a stressful

   Ms M, Cheadle Hulme

   "Nicki came highly recommended by another Solicitor. From our first meeting with Nicki she was approachable and supportive during

   her team."

   Steven G

   "Nicola was recommended to me by another practising family law solicitor, as someone who will give me the care, support and attention
   I required during a very difficult period. I was not disappointed, the open and professional support provided by the whole team
   was second to none, something I will be forever grateful for"

   would be very happy to recommend the practice to anyone in need of a good solicitor.

   Andy W

   "I cannot recommend Nicki Tiernan and her team enough, an exceptional service from start to finish. The prospect of dealing with
   anything of a legal nature can be daunting enough, but with the help and guidance from such a professional team of people, in particular
   Nicki, gave me the confidence to see my divorce through.
   Through difficult circumstances, high emotions, court appearances and more, Nicki and the team were with me every step of the way
   offering me help, guidance and even emotional support whenever I needed it. So if you are looking for a Solicitor with honesty, integrity,
   and professionalism then please look no further."

   Paul W

   "I would like to say in my experience Nicola and her team were very pleasant and friendly the legal advice was sound, honest, and fair.
   I would recommend anyone not to hesitate in contacting this practice.
   Yours sincerely"

   Mr Harry Gaynon... Over Peover .....Cheshire

   "Thank you for all your help, advice, support and understanding in guiding me through my divorce. You always acted promptly
   and efficiently, and were always available when I needed to talk. It was so important to me to make a 'clean break'. It has not been
   an easy time, but there is now a great sense of relief. There is sadness too of course, but that is so much better than hatred and acrimony.
   You helped make the process as painless as possible."

   Dr Clifden John Crockett.

   "In a very stressful, emotional and traumatic period, Nicki handled everything in a professional and caring way, making the whole
   process as painless and smooth as possible. I can't thank her enough. I have no hesitation in recommending Nicki and her team.."


   "Nicki represented me during a very stressful family case. I felt very well 'looked after' throughout and was always 100% confident in
   Nicki's advice and actions. The result was as positive as it could have been and I'm hugely grateful to Nicki for that. Nicki was always
   very responsive to any communication and always made sure that I was well prepared for what was coming next. I would wholeheartedly
   recommend Nicki."

   Kate....From Cheshire

   "Nicola's approach has made my divorce far less traumatic and difficult than it might otherwise have been. Her attitude allowed my
   ex husband and I to reach amicable arrangements, without antagonising each other, a trick path to tread. Divorce will never be easier
   and almost inevitably one party will be more aggrieved that another but by not focussing on the past but rather making sensible
   arrangements going forward a lot of the heat is taken out of the situation."


   "I know to whoever reads this it's going to sound "cliche" but NJ Tiernan solicitors to me represents the most ......"professional,
   personable,and trustworthy firm of solicitors in the north west.

   Nicola is sympathetic and understanding of the issues faced by those of us in need of professional help. Nicola is approachable,
   immensely professional but more importantly she is friendly and reliable. Nicola and her team never once made me feel as though I was
   just another client; they always took the time to listen and offer both professional and emotional support at times when I felt I could
   have just "given in". They even contacted me directly when they felt I may just need someone to talk to and to check on my well being.

   I cannot express my gratitude and thanks enough to Nicola and her team. At the end of what was two emotionally difficult situations in my
   life, I now have the opportunity to live the life I have always wanted. To be honest it's quiet sad that it has all ended in a strange way; but
   contact will continue as I have three more new friends; in Nicola and her team.

   Thank you once again"

   Ms Rebecca Murphy, Cheadle Hulme

   "I can't thank Nicki and the team enough, they made the process of divorce easier to handle (especially as my ex was rather difficult),
   whenever I needed advice or even just a shoulder to moan or cry on I would give her a call and would get a call back that made me feel
   so much better. I would have no hesitation in recommending Nicki's services to anyone who is going through divorce. I can't thank Nicki
   and her team enough for making the whole process that much better to cope with".


   "Thank you for the professional approach to my case and the resolution of the issues. The very personable approach to your work made
   the whole process much easier".


   "I would like to thank Nicki for not only handling my divorce brilliantly but also being a huge support for the following eight years when I
   have needed advice regarding my ex husband and also upon remarrying. She is genuinely caring and supportive and helped me
   massively following a very acrimonious split and difficult ex husband. She has never failed to offer support and advice when I have asked
   and made sure I was financially looked following my divorce which I didn't think at the time was achievable. I cannot recommend her
   highly enough.".

    Mike (Bramhall)

   "From my initial consultation right through to my divorce, Nicki has been professional & very caring..A lovley lady. ".

    Mike (Bramhall)

   "I would like to thank Nicola and her team at (Nicola J Tiernan Solicitor Ltd) for their professional help regarding my divorce. Divorce can
   be very stressful, upsetting, complicated and expensive, but Nicola made me feel relaxed throughout the whole trauma and simplified
   everything so it was easier to understand. Once I had explained my situation, I left her to takeover to which she would call or email
   updates throughout the case. I would strongly recommend (Nicola J Tiernan Solicitor Ltd) to all my family & friends. She/they are very
   professional, trustworthy and even advised me how to save money with her by keeping appointments to a limit.

   As a result of this, my life is now back on track and I have never been happier. BIG BIG THANKS ".

    Miss M (Cheadle)

   "Nicki made what should have been the most stressful time a smooth transaction, continually putting my mind at rest and helping me
   through my divorce and financial settlement with such professionalism and to a most satisfactory conclusion. I would recommend her to
   anyone needing this type of legal advice ".

    Paul from Bramhall

   "I have been delighted with the service I received from Nicola and her team. Everything has been completed in a most professional but
   extremely caring manner. Questions were dealt with swiftly and contact was particularly efficient. I would not hesitate to recommend
   Nicola Tiernan".


   "I'd like to thank Nicki on the way She handled my divorce case which was a bit stressful to say the least. She made me feel tons better
   after our first meeting and made it fully clear that she would fight my corner to the end. She was totally professional way everything in the
   was dealt with and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her.".

    Mr H - Oldam

   "My divorce went through so quickly and easily and the advice that I received from Nicki was perfect. I would have no hesitation in    
   recommending her services.".

    Mrs L - Chorlton

   "I can't thank and praise Nicki and her team enough. Having being presented with an unwanted request for divorce, Nicki supported me
   through a very difficult time emotionally and financially. Being openly ignorant to the process and procedures of divorce having never
   contemplated the eventually of such an occurrence, I never felt any awkwardness asking what might be silly or juvenile questions
   regarding next steps or options.

   The communication channels and progress updates also provided reassurance that I hadn't been forgotten about and that may
   case while simple in practice as no children were involved was as important as other clients.

   I am so grateful that I was recommended to Nicki and should any of my friends or colleagues have to embark on a separation of their
   own, I will be more than happy to recommend that they seek out Nicki as opposed to a high street option who may adhere to a rigid out
   of a text book approach instead of mediating and compromising.".

    Mrs L - Chorlton

   "I can honestly say that throughout the whole process my matters were dealt with professionally and efficiently at all times. From the very
   first introduction meeting to the conclusion of the decree absolute. I believe that I was given excellent and clear advice. I also felt
   supported and that I had someone on my side throughout the, sometimes difficult, negotiations to reach final agreement. I felt that my
   solicitor was not only a pleasure to work with, but caring and wanted only the best outcome for me. I would most certainly recommend to
   other people".

    Mrs C - Macclesfield

   "Nicki helped me through a very dark time in my life, she offered sound advice and gave me the support and sensitivity I absolutely
   needed.  I woul recommend Nicki to anyone, she was even at the end of the phone when she was boarding the plane to go on holiday."


   "To have such a kind, caring and wise legal mind helping me through the difficult journey that was an unexpected divorce has been a
   great comfort. I am happy to recommend Nicki and her team to anyone finding themselves in such a difficult place."

    Neil P

   "From my experience when you decide to Divorce your whole world turns up side down, its as simple as that. It's a time in your life when
   you most need certainty, but you have the least. To be honest it's not a very nice place to be! Looking back it is so important to get the
   right professional advice as soon as possible so you can start to manage your expectations and begin to plan a way forward in terms of
   the changes that are likely to happen in your life. Fortunately for me a friend strongly recommended Nicki Tiernan to me as she had
   represented him in his divorce case a few years earlier. In my view the best bit of advice I could have had.

   Throughout my journey, I always felt that not only was Nicki a strong advocate for me in my case, but also that the advice she gave me
   was constructive, clear, and accurate based on a wealth of knowledge and experience. I had confidence in what I was being advised. I
   am convinced that that advice not only saved me a lot of money in legal costs but also the pain of a prolonged divorce. I also would like
   to add that Nicki is not an old school "black and white" type of solicitor, but in my opinion a modern creative thinker and problem
   solver, which is essential when attempting to overcome the many problematic areas in a divorce case, outside of court. That said, I
   have no doubt that that Nicki would have been a fierce opponent in Court should the need have arisen. Fortunately for me it didn't. Finally
   I think it is very important to add that at no time did I ever feel that Nicki's motivation was "fee based", I always felt her priority was
   to resolve my divorce in my best interests as quickly and cost effectively as possible. If I was ever to go through this process again,
   God forbid, Nicki would be first person I would call. Once again I would like to thank you Nicki and your team."

   Bryan, Gatley

   "I was extremely impressed with the high quality of service and support provided by Nicola and her colleagues and would strongly
   recommend her services to others."

   Nigel, Heaton Moor

   "Nicki is very knowledgeable and easy to talk to, she gave me invaluable advice and guidance and supported me through a stressful
   period. I would have no hesitation in recommending her to my friends."

   Mrs O, Stockport

   "You have been fantastic, helpful, realistic and above all totally professional....
   Trust me you will never be short of work!! Thank you once again."

   Mr J

   "The distress of divorce is one which I was not prepared for and I believe having the right solicitor to represent you is essential to ease
   some of the stress and Nicola did exactly that for me at every stage. I would highly recommend Nicola to anyone facing a divorce who
   needs representation and cannot state enough how much Nicola helped me through a very difficult period. Not only was she incredibly
   knowledgeable and professional but took the time to talk me through every concern I had and listened, acting on my concerns with care
   and sensitivity. The outcome of my divorce was more than I could have hoped for and this was solely down to the time, effort and
   amazing advice Nicola gave to me during my divorce."

   Rebecca, Leicestershire

   "During the 10 months Nicola dealt with my divorce the legal advice and guidance she gave me proved invaluable in what was a
   highly emotional and distressing time for me personally. Not only did Nicola give the professional and accurate legal advice I needed
   at each stage of the divorce but was amazing at re-assuring me every step of the way that the decisions we made regarding contact
   issues and financial issues were in my best interest and were right for my circumstances."

   Mrs M, Holmes Chapel

   "Nicki made me feel comfortable and secure in her judgement from beginning to end. Her work and foresight on all matters was
   outstanding, I would and have recommended her to my own clients, friends and family."


   "After agreeing a healthy financial settlement some years earlier, I was surprised to receive a further financial challenge
   on behalf of my ex wife via the CSA. I instructed Nicki as my Solicitor due to her reputation & expertise in this area of family law.
   Not only was Nicki able to unpick the earlier agreement submitted before the court, she was able renegotiate a mutually agreeable
   settlement and in doing so, substantially reduce the financial demands made upon me by the CSA. Her thoroughness, her expertise
   and advice were second to none and had I instructed Nicki as my solicitor in the first case, I doubt very much that I would have ended
   up having to choose another solicitor a second time around."

   Mr. P. Stockport

   Throughout my divorce Nicki was fantastic. She was consistent, knowledgeable, efficient and supportive. I trusted in her judgement
   and got an outcome which was fair, which is what I wanted. I have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone who has to go through
   any unfortunate family law matters. You want Nicki on your side, not the other side.

   Neil - Hazel Grove

   "Nicki was very professional, supportive and understanding during a very emotional and stressful divorce. I am grateful to her for
   guiding me through the whole process and making sense of the mess that divorce can be. She had my best interests at heart but at the
   same time was straightforward and honest with me.........if you need a divorce lawyer then Nicki is the lady to come to....."

   M - Stockport

   "Just a quick note to say thank you for all you did regarding the matrimonial matters with the ex Mrs D*****. We are very grateful for the
   way things were professionally and expertly dealt with. Should anyone we know require your services, we will not hesitate to
   recommend you."

   Mr D*******

   "Nicki recently supported me in relation to a separation and access to my children. Her advice was clear, honest and certainly very
   useful. I would have no hesitation in recommending her services and mediation as a way of resolving family related matters in a fair and
   amicable way."

   Matt from Bramhall

   "Many thanks for all your support and guidance over the last 3 years, during what have been difficult and challenging times.
   Your practical and commonsense approach was really appreciated and I would be more than happy to recommend you to others".


   "The service I received from Nicola was both professional and supportive and I am very grateful for the guidance and assistance I
   received throughout the difficult process of divorce. All of my queries were responded to promptly and Nicola was very considerate about
   my own personal circumstances. I would recommend her service to anyone in need of a family solicitor".

   Ms T, Stockport

   "Thanks for the help you gave me during a very difficult and sensitive time of our lives. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending your firm to
   anyone needing a family solicitor."


   "Thank you so much for all the work that you & the girls in the office have done for me.. Through using your knowledge & experience
   over the last fifteen months, I can honestly say that I've been really pleased with the end result."

   Ms B, Poynton

   "I would like to thank Nicola for her advice and expertise during this tricky period. Things are difficult enough as they are and it became
   extremely helpful that I had Nicola's ear and sound knowledge to call in. I wouldn't think twice about recommending Nicola to anyone
   in the future. Thanks again."

   Bob Fletcher

   "Many thanks to you and your staff for all your help and support over the past 2 years,I really couldn't have got through
    all this without your help. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend your services to anyone who may need them in the future. Again, many
    thanks, all your hard work on my behalf has been very much valued and appreciated".

    Mr H from Stockport

   You guys have been brilliant. It was reassuring to have such strong support through a 2 year period which was very stressful.
   There were times when I thought that it would be less stressful to cave in to the other side's unreasonable demands but
   I was always reassured that it was right to say no. Thanks again�

   Mr R from Altrincham

   "After starting divorce proceedings my youngest son became dangerously ill and was admitted to Christies for a transplant.
   At this point I was emotional, reactive and stressed. It was too much for me to carry on divorce proceedings. I can't say how
   relieved I was to find Nicki so professional yet sensitive to my situation and ready to act on my behalf. Thank you so much!"


   "Thank you for your speedy and efficient work in relation to my divorce. I will be sure to recommend you to anyone
    in need of a divorce solicitor.".

   Ms P from Stockport

   It was a painful difficult decision but I felt supported all the way by Nicola and her collagues."
