What our clients say about Deborah:
"I would just like to say a big thank you to Deborah Agus for all her help over the last several months regarding my Divorce and Financial affairs. She has been so professional and helpful, Over the last year I have had to deal with a lot of stress, upset and changes in my life and with the help of Deborah this very hard time for me and my two young children has become a lot more easier to cope with and that’s down to her and all her hard work and commitment. I do generally believe If I hadn’t had Deborah then the outcome would have been a lot different. I can’t recommend her enough." CM
"I am writing to express my complete satisfaction with the way Deborah handled my case. She was very professional, understanding and able. Deborah is a nice person to deal with.
Although my case was not very complicated, she was very good in organising things and managing my expectations. I have been in family courts many times before and have used few solicitors, Deborah is the best." Z
