I was going through a fairly complicated divorce. Financially, it could have been a nightmare situation with a shortfall in funds for purchasing a house. Smart Divorce were recommended by a friend who was in a similar position to me. Tamsin immediately put me at ease and we trawled through all the complex issues in a way which I understood. It was entirely a personal service – I felt as though I could contact the team any time. The whole experience was so positive and uncomplicated, and I would highly recommend Smart Divorce to anyone who needs professional, but personal advice.
I have had the pleasure of working with Tamsin during my divorce and for pensions advice. In both areas Tamsin applied her vast experience and up-to-date knowledge to the counsel she offered, whilst applying her engaging and kind approach to challenging conversations. Tamsin prioritised my needs and made sure that I had the best possible outcome – I wouldn’t want anyone else in my corner. Please look no further if you need help with either a divorce or pensions advice, Tamsin comes very highly recommended and will forever have my gratitude.Danielle Peel Adams
I just wanted to say thanks again for all of your help last year, your swift and efficient response significantly reduced my stress levels at the time and your report was really useful in helping us to come to an agreement about the financial settlement. 😊Paulette Forbes
Tamsin’s wonderful financial services came highly recommended to me via a family contact of mine when I needed help the most: immediately following a prolonged divorce process, due in part to my years-long experience of commercial abuse. Tamsin certainly had the credentials: she inspires trust, has immense capability, considerable qualifications (Financial and Resolution), and vast experience.
Although I had never met Tamsin before, after only one meeting with her, I had complete confidence that she knew exactly, not only how I was feeling and what I was experiencing on a personal level, but also what I needed to consider financially for the rest of my life. She listened, she intuited, she reassured, and she inspired.
Despite being exceptionally nervous about my hard-re-gained assets leaving my bank account so soon after the divorce, Tamsin completely understood my anxiety-founded fear of losing control of my worldly goods again: she metaphorically held my hand with kindness and patience throughout the full discussions we had about how my present and future financial security–and peace of mind–would be assured in the way that I felt entirely comfortable.
Tamsin certainly has the calm ability to make the complex seem very easy to comprehend. She communicated excellently and time-efficiently at every stage of the preparation and arrangements for the personal financial investments she was advising about, and undertaking, on my behalf.
If there was to be anybody I would trust 100% with my finances and financial planning again after experiencing commercial abuse, I couldn’t have come across anyone better than Tamsin; I am extremely happy to have found her, and for her to be working on my financial planning and the investment of my assets for the foreseeable future. I can’t recommend Tamsin of Smart Divorce highly enough.Rachel S.
Post divorce I didn’t have a clue what I was doing with the pension share from my former spouse.
Finding someone who could steer me simply and painlessly through it was a huge relief.
Tamsin is a great communicator and delivered the advice swiftly and in incredibly palatable and understandable doses.
She’s given me a very reassuring overview of my financial situation and the pension share has been sorted with the minimum of fuss.
As a result of her advice and contacts, I have now also organised income protection and a new will.
It’s a great feeling to have everything sorted post divorce, and someone on your team who can trust to give you sound and practical financial advice.
I can’t recommend Tamsin heartily enough.”Sarah Jennings
During my divorce my solicitor advised me that I needed to get independent financial advice and Tamsin was recommended to me by a friend. I am so glad that I went with Tamsin as her no nonsense, common sense, logical approach meant that I was able to come to a financial settlement without going to court. Tamsin explained everything to me in a way that I could understand, and she fully appreciates the fact that getting divorced is on occasions overwhelming, especially when things are more complicated than you had ever imagined they would be.
The report that Tamsin produced for me was based on the facts and what she suggested I offer to try and reach a settlement was both fair and reasonable. If Tamsin had not got involved, I would have ended up having to go to court, spending a fortune and causing myself and my children continued uncertainty and hardship.
I would whole heartedly recommend Tamsin and Smart Divorce – honest, professional, knowledgeable, and perhaps most importantly for me empathetic.Sarah Laird
