I cannot thank Amanda Adamson and her team enough for the 1st class service they provided. After going through a very traumatic separation, she was kind, considerate and extremely compassionate. She has guided me and been completely honest throughout. I would 100% recommend her.

Amanda is an outstanding professional and I fully recommend. Through Amanda’s hard work, expertise and general brilliance I have been able to resolve a family issue that had been occurring for some years previously. Amanda’s insight into the right approach and understanding the situation with a compassionate approach made this whole process a lot less painful & a lot more successful than I had hoped!

I experienced a fantastic service from Amanda and her team. She supported and helped me through a very traumatic divorce and offered much support and advice. Always available to talk and very thorough. I found Donnelly's reception very friendly and helpful too. Would highly recommend.
