Some kind words from our clients

Sofia has taken all of the stress and worries of having to deal with HMRC away from me. She is extremely professional, very easy to communicate with. Sofia’s knowledge of every aspect of the tax law is second to none. One year I was given a much higher tax bill than expected, Sofia worked tirelessly until we reached a fantastic settlement (less than 70% of the original demand).
Mr M
I contacted Sofia following a recommendation from my mediator. From the first moment we spoke I knew that Sofia had my very best interests at heart. Sofia talked me through my case and the type of services and reports she could provide, she and her PA answered all my questions and made a very stressful time much easier and clearer. I would not hesitate to recommend her services, she was a pleasure to deal with.
Ms W
Sofia provided really insightful and helpful advice in relation to my divorce and the tax implications arising from it, including in particular the potential capital gains issues. It was great to meet Sofia in person to start with, and we then carried on via email. Her report and advice were very clear and set out in plain English. I found Sofia really knowledgeable but also approachable, responsive and quick. It was a big relief to find someone who could help me work my way through some tax issues which I find really quite impenetrable.
Mr T
I found myself in the curious corner of being generous by moving out of my family home to reduce attrition between my wife and myself only to discover that I was then liable to pay some capital gains tax when the family home is sold. Sofia was very forthcoming in generously offering clear informative free advice and the option to then instruct her to draw up the figures should I need a formal letter for the divorce proceedings and HMRC. I was very glad I found her.
Mr J
"Thank you Sofia, so incredibly helpful."
Mariko Wilson, Family Law in Partnership
"I thought the webinar was excellent, both in terms of content and presentation."
Attendee 2019 Class Legal Webinar on Income Tax on Divorce
"I owned three properties and due to personal circumstances I needed to make some changes to my portfolio. Sofia worked with me to analyse the equity in all the properties and what the Capital Gains Tax would be on each. She made sure we utilised all of the tax reliefs available to me and as a result I saved a substantial amount of tax whilst at the same time felt reassured that I was compliant. Needless to say I am delighted with the service I received."
Mrs Kopiel
"Sofia has been incredibly helpful, advising me on a range of tax issues. Would definitely recommend her services - she is friendly, clear, prepared and extremely knowledgeable, and takes the time to meet face to face."
Mrs Straupmanis
