Anittha Selvakkumaran now lives happily in Singapore.

Anittha Selvakkumaran was staying in a women’s refuge when she was introduced to Hewitts for help with her divorce.

Anittha said: “My solicitor became more of a friend and a great guide than a lawyer working on my case. She was dedicated, resourceful and knowledgeable in her work.

“When I first met her she understood my expectations clearly and advised me on the possible outcomes.”

Part-way through the case Anittha had to leave the UK and return to Singapore. When she was unable to return to give evidence, Hewitts arranged for her to testify via a video link.

Anittha’s case was concluded satisfactorily, including a financial settlement, and she is now making a new life in Singapore.

“Without Hewitts’ true dedication, commitment and expertise I would not have achieved the results that I obtained,” she said. “Without Hewitts’ help, I do not know where I would have ended up in my life.”

"Without Hewitts’ help, I do not know where I would have ended up in my life."
