Great Family Lawyer
Yulia and team have provided a responsive, efficient and tailored support service throughout the last few years. Trusted counsel and helpful perspective on emerging issues has been greatly valued and spot on in navigating challenging circumstances throughout the court process and has been pivotal in securing a good outcome.

Couldn't have asked for better service!!
It was an absolute pleasure to speak to Yulia. She was extremely helpful and very friendly and even though it was only our initial contact to explore matters, she was full of advice and highly client focused. I would recommend Yulia in particular, but my whole experience with her including my first contact with the client care team was fantastic!

Family law specilaists
Usually I shop around for quotes but after the initial introductory meeting, I felt confident in a fair outcome and that I had found the right team. Yulia has a very down to earth, pragmatic and compassionate approach which was vital throughout a very difficult and worrying year. Approximate costs and timeframes were regularly communciated. Yulia work in teams so your allocated a day to day lead and a senior to oversee and focus on the settlement strategy. The divorce process encompasses a lot of paperwork, emotion and time. I had plenty of support with the upmost empathy in managing it around several serious and chronic health conditions. Someone was always on hand including timely updates outside of business hours.

Professional Team with Good Values
Feel so lucky to have come across Yulia Vangorodskaya. They acted so professionally during my lengthy and very difficult divorce. I had a team of experts on hand to help me over the hurdles including court orders for non-compliance and specific incidents, and sourcing of valuators for overseas property. They were considerate of expenses by delegating to junior members of the team when appropriate, avoiding unnecessary meetings, and keeping phone calls to the point with options readily available for decisions. A special team that stuck to their values as stated in the telephone answering message. Special thanks to Yulia.

Brilliant lawyer
5 years ago my husband had a Traumatic Brain injury. We researched solicitors whom specialised in serious injury cases and started the ball rolling. Mrs Vangorodskaya and his team were great, looking after us all the way through this process. Also Yulia was brilliant and between them all won our case. Which has opened many options for us moving forward. We shall be forever grateful

Very good lawyer
My sale was completed in 23 weeks from the date of first contact, and this included navigating the additional complexities involved with extending my lease as part of the sale. They were professional and responsive throughout, and stuck to their initial quote. I felt well supported!

Empathic during difficult times
This was a chapter of my life i never thought I'd experience being married 25 years and together for 30. In my opinion Yulia was able to answer questions and help guide me through this difficult time whilst remaining impartial. Yulia remained empathic throughout the whole process, even when communication broke down between my now ex wife.

Very efficient when responding
We used Yulia law firm to help us move home when we bought our first house, and we were so impressed by their professionalism and friendliness we had to use them again for their conveyancing services for our new home. The team has great communication and were able to keep us updated at every stage of the process. I’d highly recommend Yulia!
