Testimonials

“"I chose Sally Hartland to represent me after reading the profiles of several family solicitors across Nottingham. As soon as I met Sally, she took in all the details I gave her and helped me write sound and accurate statements and she represented me well in court. She always gave me sound advice and acted immediately on any worrying/new developments. I would highly recommend Sally. She is very approachable, easily contactable, empathetic, objective and extremely professional.”
“Sally conducted herself impeccably in this situation, with a maturity beyond her already considerable experience. She is a credit to your firm.”
“Sally Hartland was such a lovely person and put me at ease from the start. A credit to the company. Thank you.”
Sue Stevenson
“Sally Hartland was invaluable when representing the interests of myself and my children. She provided clear advice and support when applying for a change of residency, in what seemed like a futile case as the children had been living with their father for 6 years. Thankfully, we were able to win the case and my children are happy and settled in Nottingham. I am eternally grateful for how she helped my family and would recommend her services. ”

“We would like to thank you for your professional help, support and genuine kindness through very difficult times… with very best wishes and grateful thanks. ”
Charles and Jane Day
“I believe Ms. Sally Hartland to be a competent and patient solicitor who really knows all the details of this discipline. What I also appreciated quite a bit during my proceedings was the immediate availability and helpfulness anytime I sought advice. In other words, with Ms. Hartland, one is never left waiting when urgent decisions need to be made, but she is always a friendly and reassuring voice at the end of the phone line. ”
Sascha Grillo
“We went to Sally Hartland to help us in a child custody case, we can not praise her enough on her performance during this case. Sally went above and beyond for me and my family and was always reliable and efficient in her work. She was always very friendly while keeping things professional. She has given us piece of mind that if we were to ever need her services again we would feel comfortable and confident in Sally to handle them. ”
Sarah Dunlop and Louise James
“Meticulous' and 'thorough' associate Sally Hartland is recommended for parental disputes involving issues such as contact, residency and domestic violence. ”
Legal 500, 2020
“We can’t thank Sally enough for her help and guidance during a recent case. Sally was incredibly patient with us, neither of us have been involved in a process of this nature before and the whole thing was quite daunting to begin with and we had a lot of questions. Her honesty throughout was very welcome especially given some scenarios which we found ourselves facing. Should we find ourselves in a similar position in the future we will 100% be contacting Rothera Sharp. ”
