"Wayne is incredibly helpful and delicate in what can be emotionally wrought exchanges. Wayne represented me in Court, he is very upfront and direct, laying out in simple terms the possibilities and provides guidance to achieve insofar as possible a satisfactory outcome. I’ll be forever grateful for his help and guidance. I hope I don’t need his services again, but if I do, I won’t consider any other solicitor."

I highly recommend WLS Solicitors.

Thank you Mr Wayne Phillips for showing nothing other than a professional approach during a very stressful and sensitive time, delivering on a Child Arrangement & amicable Contact Order.

"Wayne has been an absolute professional in dealing with my divorce as well as advising and supporting in all ways. 

His knowledge is thorough, he consistently works to reach your goal, and is completely neutral in his approach. 

My peace of mind has been acknowledged and met..many thanks."

"Following very poor service from my previous Solicitor, who was dealing with my divorce, I decided to change my legal representation and enquired with several local Solicitors to take on my case.     WLS Solicitors were the first to respond and their Head of Family Services, Wayne Phillips, contacted me straight away to discuss my situation.  I was immediately impressed by his approach and the manner in which he made time for me to have a face to face discussion with him that day; I looked no further.  Since then Wayne has afforded excellent service providing sound counsel and a willingness to chase up other parties.  What has impressed me most, is his very quick response to my emails and phone messages, often within minutes of me making contact.  Furthermore, he has been very fair and reasonable over charges."
