“After absorbing the information from my hearing yesterday I wanted to say a huge thank you to Glynis Wright for her professionalism and support throughout my divorce process. Glynis ensured that we left the hearing in such a strong position. She controlled the hearing in a respectful manner and represented me with such confidence and determination against the opposition who had hired a Barrister. Who the heck needs a Barrister when I had you to represent me! I am so thankful you’re on my ‘team’.”
