Great outcome in a tricky situation – Putting it simply, I needed advice on access to my daughter, as she was due to move abroad with my ex partner. I was unsure on my rights and had been unclear on a ‘father’s’ access and influence in the process. David laid it out simply and, more importantly, in an understanding way. I was angry at the situation and needed his guidance and his ability to steer me in the right and correct direction. His clear advice allowed me to make correct and legal decisions. I write this review now as I am out of the other side of the issue and ‘it worked’. In summary without David’s advice my daughter and I would be in a very different place in our relationship, also her view that her father was there for her! Thank you Owen Kenny, a good team!
