"Nicki was a great support to me during the transaction of my acrimonious divorce, a very painful and time consuming process. She calmed me when all I wanted to be was hot headed and irrational even though deep down I knew that her advice was right based on common sense and her experience. The outcome was as good as I could have hoped for (given the way the law dictates) and Nicki helped me win on the points which were most important to me. My circumstances were complex but all have now been resolved to a satisfactory conclusion which can allow let me build and enjoy my life going forward. Thank you"Paul, Sale

You came recommended, like a fine wine! And I would definitely recommend you!"Clare

Both 'human' and 'commercial' advice / guidance was provided for the duration and the paperwork was completed with a minimum of fuss. The office kept me updated throughout and the final costs were realistic. I would thoroughly recommend NJT."Mark Chadwick

"I sought Nicki's advice before proceeding with my divorce. She outlined the process and gave me clear guidance as to what to expect during this very stressful time. Throughout the 7 months it took to obtain my divorce Nicki and Michelle, her assistant, were very supportive, replying to my calls and emails very promptly. This was very reassuring as I knew I wouldn't have to wait long for answers to my queries. Once Nicki had my financial information and understood my situation, she was very clear and focused on how my divorce should proceed. This was excellent for me, personally, as there were times when I felt wretched due to unbearable living circumstances, and I felt like giving up on the divorce process as I felt at times that this would be easier. Nicki's swift, direct responses to myself and to my husband's solicitor kept things very firmly on track. Divorce is never an easy decision to make, it is a very stressful time for everyone. However the service Nicki and her team provides ensures that the process proceeds in a timely manner, as Nicki will issue strict deadlines to the responding solicitor which enables the unpleasant process to proceed swiftly. I would absolutely recommend Nicola Tiernan to anyone who needs matrimonial support."Suzanne B Bramhall

"I engaged Nicola Tiernan to manage and complete my financial settlement post-divorce after concerns over protecting my assets and business.

I have found Nicki and her team to be kind, considerate and proactive in their approach to all matters. I was kept informed and reassured throughout the process. What was a stressful, difficult and challenging time in my life was made much more bearable, i can't thank Nicki and Michelle enough and i have no hesitation in recommending Nicki to anyone in similar circumstances. "Chris, Bramhall

"Nicki was brilliant in resolving a pension share issue with my ex husband. It was a complex case that had dragged on for years beforehand and relations between me and my ex were very strained. I felt reassured I was in safe hands from the outset. Nicki was extremely professional, efficient and knowledgeable. It reduced the strain & worry considerably knowing she was dealing with my case. She was a no nonsense tough negotiator and ensured a fair outcome was finally achieved. I was delighted with the result! I would highly recommend Nicki to family and friends."Carolyn Ferguson from Didsbury

"The advice given to me by Nicola was excellent and vital that helped me reach an agreement with my ex wife that both parties were happy with. She clearly explained the issues and options to me. If I did not understand an issue she would explain it to me. I found her all her advice incredibly helpful. I believed she was very understanding and sympathetic which I feel is vital, as going through a separation is emotionally distressing. Nicola helped me to focus my mind on the practical issues of the separation and guide me through the steps I needed to take"Peter

The process was greatly helped by your insightful and accurate expertise, your insight into how other parties may think and act.

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.

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." Sarah

"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".Susan

"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)

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)

"I'd like to thank Nicki on the way She handled my divorce case which was a bit stressful to say the least.

"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 LChorlton

"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 LChorlton

"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 CMacclesfield

"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."Anon

"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."Katy

"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. NeilHazel Grove

"Nicki was very professional, supportive and understanding during a very emotional and stressful divorce.

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.
