I was impressed with Arlene's flexibility and coming to see me in Southampton. Her professionalism and kindness were much appreciated.
Neil J Guerin Direct Access Client
I write this letter with sincere gratitude and thanks for the services of Arlene Small. Arlene represented me in my divorce proceedings. In this short time of representation, Arlene provided clarity and the utmost professionalism. I have seldom seen such a committed and dedicated person to a task. Arlene’s eye for detail and determination to succeed in my case was truly remarkable. Prior to seeking Arlene’s help and advice my case had elongated over a period of 2 years, to which no solution had been found by my Solicitor. Within two meetings Arlene had a better grasp on my case and set down clear and distinct guidelines that could not be misinterpreted. Arlene represented me in Court to which again her professionalism was on full display. It was so refreshing to see how Arlene calmly took control of previously convoluted information from the proceedings and placed it into a clear and legible language for all parties to understand. My experiences with Clerksroom prior to this were limited. I can only thank you for your services and a debt of gratitude for the guidance and determined focus of Arlene Small. I shall be recommending Clerksroom at every opportunity in the future. Yours gratefully Neil J Guerin

I was most impressed how conscientiously you (Arlene Small) pursued my wishes to benefit the children during the trial in front of the judge, how you managed my expectations but all the while trying to find a solution for me.

I frequently instruct Arlene [Small] on a range of family matters. Arlene clearly has a passion for all areas of family law. Arlene is approachable and is always extremely helpful and thorough in her work. Arlene builds good relationships with the clients and is always willing to go the extra mile for them. Clients will often request that Arlene continues to deal with their matter as they have been impressed by the support she provides as well as her extensive knowledge of the law. I would not hesitate to instruct Arlene in the future and would definitely recommend Arlene to anyone looking for a family law barrister.
