  Lara W about McKenzie Friend Phil Kedge

Phil made what was an incredibly difficult process, so much easier. He provided so much support throughout the whole court process, answering any questions and guiding me throughout. On the day of my court hearing, his calming presence was invaluable, I don't think I would have had as good an outcome without him. I'd thoroughly recommend Phil and McKenzie's friend and should the need occur, I would not hesitate to use them again.

  Vicky about Chris Lewis and Derek Lockie covering North West.

I just wanted to say thank you so much to you and chris for all your support and advice over the past few months. I would never of come out the other side in one piece without it. You've both been absolutely brilliant. As you know the situation I was in was very controlling.. I thought I was the only one who could see but you both could see my situation straight away. Both of your support in a terrible situation got me through, at court and over the phone.
Once again thank you so much to you and Chris

  Salema C about McKenzie Friend Phil Kedge

Phil was the voice of reason in the midst of solicitors who just wanted mymoney, and Children's Services who didn't appear to be listening. I was very grateful for his sound advice which, although hard to hear, was exactly what I needed. It was good to feel as if someone had myback when I was alone in a tough situation, and I can't recommend him highly enough.

  Sue about McKenzie Friend Stephen Linnard

You kindly put me in touch with Stephen Linnard, back in January, his advice and guidance have been invaluable to me.
I have for the moment stepped back from pushing forward with further action, unless my husband decides otherwise.
It is therefore the correct time to acknowledge the service given to me and let you know how happy I was, to be put in touch with your organisation.
Stephen has been a reassuring, insightful and knowledgeable person to deal with, always willing to take my calls.
He has an extremely calming manner which has really helped me to cope. I cannot speak highly enough of the service he has provided me.

Phil was supportive in every way and a great mentor at a time in my life when everything and everyone seemed to be going against me. I wouldn’t have had a clue representing myself. Phil went way beyond the expectations of a mckenzie friend and at least matched the work of any good solicitor at a fraction of the cost, the pay as you go system really helped manage finances also. 100% recommended

I’ve been dealing with my divorce for over 6 years. After getting M.S dealing with this has been harder. I finally got a final hearing in court and without Stephen with me I could never have been able to go through the last hurdle of my divorce. Without his support and help I couldn’t have coped with it. It’s now over and I wanted to write and thank Stephen for being there , and helping me through one of the hardest days in my life

Regarding the case, Emma was extremely supportive and engaged – she was very much onside. Her advice was excellent and very nearly tipped the scles in my favour. In fact, had she been allowed to speak then I have no doubt that I would have won. Indeed, the judge went so far as to give her his thanks and fulsome praise.

Stephen is very dedicated, sincere and committed. He was communicating well and was very responsive to all my queries, no matter how small. I am very grateful for all the support and help I have received from Stephen and I would strongly recommend him as a Mckenzie friend. He provided me not only with great life experience and expertise but also with the warmth, support and understanding throughout this difficult time. Stephen made great effort to explain to me the process, rules and options and if I ever need to use such help again I’d definitely come back to Stephen. He provided me with legal advice, irreplaceable life experience and was a great friend at the same time. Thank you Stephen!

  Ronica (Staines) about McKenzie Friend Emma Hinksman

To give you feedback on Emma.

I felt it was so important for me to just write down a few words about how I found it working with Emma. I doubt that there are even words for it but I will try.

For over 18 months I had been going through this traumatic experience, I had paid for lawyers who had left me feeling more alone than if I had never even solicited their services. Then came Emma through a friend and for the first time I felt confident that I could see it through with my head held up. I think Emma having legal background and being the kind person she is made it easy to fully express what my desires were. Other lawyers always left me feeling confused and sometimes made it seem like I did not know what I want. Emma took the time to understand what I wanted and as a result helped me to win this and put a stop to the foolishness I had been subjected to. 

Honestly Emma is an asset!!! I can't sing her praises enough. She really is a blessed person and I am sure all those that work with her are blessed. I wish that every aspect of life had an Emma. The world would be a better place. 

I really felt sad saying goodbye to her but I know there are so many other people out there who need her. 

I sincerely wish her all the best. She really inspires me as she has a serious boss work ethic, honesty, intelligence and compassion that many people can't even have if they tried. 

I am so inspired by Emma's work ethic I want to adopt it into my life at work, in my home, with my son, in my community and believe it or not with my ex. I can see why she is successful because she puts in 1000% in what she does. Well I believe she put in 1000% in my case. 

Phil, it has been an absolute pleasure working with Emma and i hope that your organisation grows and helps the many parents out there who can't afford the exorbitant legal fees yet their hearts are in the right place.

Yours sincerely,

Ronica

  Mike C (Brighton) about McKenzie Friend Phil Kedge

Phil's non-nonsense approach really empowered me to wean myself off of a hopeless solicitor and take control of my divorce. He was a solid presence in the family court, personally being called out by the judge as being helpful to the process. Both times I was in court (for the first hearing and the FDR) I managed to get everything I asked for from the other party and the best-case scenario was realised. I would recommend him highly.

Phil has been an invaluable help through the financial settlement in my divorce case. He has given sound advice and always been available(even on Easter Sunday for an Emergency) . At the court cases he was profession but also friendly and easy to chat to inbetween the serious issues. 

I would definitely recommend Phil to help anyone through this difficult process. And wish I had used him 2 years earlier during the child arrangements as the solicitor fees were astronomical yet I feel I received the same advice at a fraction of the cost. 

I won my case after a very long battle and there’s no doubt I couldn’t have done it without Phil. Thank you so much!

Words cannot describe the professional help and support Penny offered me during my child contact case. She was there when I really had given up all other legal options.

Contact before, during and after the court case was commendable and nothing was ever a hassle or bother to her. Her knowledge, effort and integrity meant that I was successful in my case and all matters were solved within one hearing.

I would recommend Penny to anyone and only wished I'd found out about her years ago.

  Rachael W (Bournemouth) about McKenzie Friend Phil Kedge

Phil has guided me expertly and knowledgeably through the Family Court process throughout the last 3 years. The advice and the emotional support he has given have been invaluable. He has helped me to pare back statements, remove emotion and stick to the facts: advising on strategy and realistic outcomes. During hearings he is able to understand and explain the reasoning of the Judge, points of law and process and the subtext, which is often lost on me. I continue to gain positive outcomes with each successive hearing and cannot thank Phil enough for steering me, so adeptly, through this stressful and emotional process.

  Hilary W. (Aldershot) about McKenzie Friend Phil Kedge

'Well what can I say and where do I start! My journey was a long one with unexpected twists at every turn, at times the hurdles seemed daunting, confusing and often insurmountable, that was until I met Phil and learnt of the amazing work he and his team do. Phil thinks outside of the box, he is always one step ahead with his planning, his honest pragmatic approach reduced the immense stress child proceedings can often bring by their inherent deeply emotionally and provocative nature. I had used a solicitor before Phil and wasted 1000’s, if only I had known then what I know now! Believe me, you do not need these ‘professionals’ who claim to be part of Resolution or any other organisation that lends them false credibility. I got a result culminating in a final hearing I could never have dreamt possible and it was all down to Phil. I simply cannot recommend him highly enough. If child proceedings are on the horizon for you, whether Applicant or Respondent, please engage Phil and save money whilst getting the best outcome for you and your children. Thank you Phil, it would never have happened without you

  Dariusz B. (Bristol) about McKenzie Friend Penny McCarthy

Penny has been a real help to me from the very beginning and did not let me down once. Thanks to her expert advice and knowledge and most of all sincere honesty she was able to put me on the right track, when I almost lost any hope. Even before I have decided to use her services, she spent long time on the phone explaining my choices so I can prepare in advance and make necessary arrangements in uneven battle against legally aided opposition. In contrast I did not feel that confidence when dealing with my solicitors, who put a huge strain on my finances and didn't care too much about the outcome. I would like to thank Penny for the hard work she have done for me, as she was always prepared and went the extra mile to provide me with support I needed the most. Very highly recommended, wishing her and Phil all the best in the future.

This helped me have a clear idea of what I needed from the magistrates and how best to achieve my goal. I felt much more confident about what I was doing and the whole judicial process made more sense to me. This was just what I needed during this very stressful time.

He knows how to be succinct and get to the heart of the matter. He also has a professional empathy. He showed in my case a strong sense of justice.

I would definitely recommend Phil as a great choice for a McKenzie Friend.

  Shellea R. (Bournemouth) about McKenzie Friend Phil Kedge

Phil has been amazing from start to finish. He offers great support and promptly responds to any concerns/questions you have and is always very honest which helps you to be prepared for what to expect. Since having phil as a McKenzie friend I have gained confidence in him and always know he would provide great support in court (unlike a previous solicitor I had used).
I would definitely recommend Phil and know that he will always be there in the future to offer his support and knowledge if I was to ever need it.
Thanks Phil I really appreciate everything you have done

  Steve P. (Watford) about McKenzie Friend Phil Kedge

I was stopped seeing my two young sons last year with no reason, after getting quotes from solicitors to assist throughout court proceedings for a child arrangements order it became apparent i wasn't going to be able to afford their fees. Quotes came in the region of 10k-15k. I searched online and found Phil, the initial phone call took place within the same day I requested help, and he has made the whole process from start to finish a breeze. The final hearing took place yesterday and I got an order for 100% of everything I applied for. Phil has been understanding, and has been patient throughout. I have dyslexia and find processing information hard. Phil has been there every step of the way and has made me feel supported at all times. I was planning on filing my divorce after the children were sorted, and following Phil's advice i started this during child arrangement proceedings. He gave me the confidence I needed to represent myself in court with his assistance. I will reccomend Phil to everyone I know going through these unfortunate circumstances, and will be continuing to use him throughout divorce proceedings. I can't thank Phil enough for his help and support throughout the last few months.

  Steve P. (Watford) about Hayley Gregson

My case was taken on by Phil, and he advised it would be best to create a parenting plan. I took his advice and he passed me onto his affiliate Hayley to assist with the parenting plan. Hayley was available to have a phone consultation at a time which suited me 7:30pm! Hayley was supportive throughout the development of the parenting plan, and suggested adding things in I hadn't thought about. The parent plan was sent to me to approve and I couldn't find a fault with it! The parenting plan was great and has worked well to detail all information to ensure future co-parenting with the children's mum is a positive experience. I would highly reccomend Hayley.

Phil has been an absolute blessing to us throughout this process. Helping us and reassuring us through every step. We took our time to start the legal process and this was on his advice as we were in an odd situation. Every step of the way Phil has been there; by phone, email and supporting us on our 2 days in court. He made the whole process so less daunting.
Thank you Phil.

Hailey met me at the court and after a brief catch up on my case she came in to the hearing and gave me the support and guidance I needed, without her support I feel the outcome would have been for the worse but with Hailey's help I managed to represent myself against the opposition's Solicitor and put my concerns and views across to the magistrates in a positive manner.

  David K. (Brighton) about McKenzie Friend Phil Kedge

Phil was a tremendous help with all aspects of my case.  He has a calm and common sense approach to things and he was extremely good at cutting through the chatter and focusing on the important issues with a view to obtaining results.

Phil helped diffuse matters and reduce the animosity, particularly in child arrangements.  

Phil will always remain my preferred choice for a McKenzie friend and I will definitely come to him first if I do find I ever need one again.

Right of reply: I aim for the absolute highest standards of service. Unfortunately, in August 2016, I was urgently admitted to hospital by ambulance and spent 7 nights inside. I did as much as I could from my hospital bed but did fall behind.

  Charles F. (Oxford) about McKenzie Friend Phil Kedge

I cannot speak too highly of Phil. His expertise and positive approach throughout a difficult and long drawn-out child contact case in the family court were invaluable. He brought a wealth of knowledge and experience of the justice system to help me negotiate a complex process I knew nothing about. On a personal level, he offered calm and reassuring support at a highly stressful time. I could not have achieved what I did without his help and could never have afforded the many thousands it would have cost in legal fees. I would warmly recommend him to anyone in a similar position to myself. Thank you Phil!

Phil helped my partner with a very long and emotionally draining court case to gain contact with my partner's daughter; he was extremely professional and resolution-minded from the first phone call and I do not think we could have done so well without his guidance and thoughts throughout the process. I would highly recommend Phil due to his methodology, professionalism and foresight and my partner and I would not hesitate to ask for his help again.

  Gary and Jacqui St. (Basingstoke) about McKenzie Friend Phil Kedge

I have had a few McKenzie friends help me over the years, and they were  good. Phil was the best help I have ever had. He was sincere and concerned about how I was coping. Easy to get hold of, replied promptly to emails or messages. the meetings I had with him were to the point, constructive and with a clear way forward. 

The statements he produced for the courts were well written and composed.  In the past I have used  the services of solicitors. Phil was as knowledgeable and more constructive and had a better plan of action. He is easy to communicate with, a good listener and cares about what he's doing. He gives you the bigger picture and wants the best outcome for the child and you.

Money well spent and worth a lot more.

Thank you Phil

Phil was very professional and knowledgeable. A soothing calm in what could have been very tumultuous sea of bitterness. Phil is a very strong advocate of 'not rising to the bait,' if he were not present I fear I could have fallen victim. We got a court order granted at the first hearing. Would highly recommend
