SIGNIFICANT REPORTED CASES
Finch v Baker  EWCA Civ 72
What the client’s say:
‘I contacted Goodman Ray after virtually giving up hope anyone could help me as a male survivor of domestic abuse. From the very first contact all of the team at Goodman Ray have been impressive in both their speed to respond, doing as they say they will and their humanity. Izzy Jaques in particular has been absolutely amazing in her guidance and I would not hesitate in recommending her or Goodman Ray to anyone else in similar circumstances.’
“Without your support throughout the case this result would not have been possible”
“thanks for your help on everything to get us to this point”
“Thank you again for your work and support”
“I’m extremely grateful for your diligence, professionalism and calm, pragmatic and straightforward approach. Dealing with you, Hilda and Goodman Ray in general was by far the easiest and least stressful element of the process, for which I’m extremely thankful.
