Having remarried 12 years ago with the hope it was second time lucky I was aghast to find myself again in a very unhappy marriage and having been through a truly dreadful costly divorce first time round really could not face being in that situation again, let alone the financial cost. Fate intervened and I saw sense plucked up the courage to visit 3 divorce solicitors and chose the best of 3. Anna was my final choice and just simply stood out head and shoulders above the rest and I felt I could breath again and move on.

I can’t thank you enough Anna, an absolute star who got straight to the relevant issues.

I have a new much better life now. Thank you – you are amazing.

Mrs. B, Tadcaster

Anna Godfrey steered me through the divorce process without adding to my stress. She is very professional but with a friendly style that puts you at easy. Nothing was too much trouble. All details were explained and at any point  that I had queries she would answer them by phone or email. I was extremely pleased with the service I received from Beck solicitors and would recommend them to anyone going through this awful situation. Anna took some of the pressure away.

Mrs. H, Ripon, North Yorkshire

Anna Godfrey at Beck Solicitors was invaluable during my divorce process and a very calm head at a stressful time for myself. Clear communications and delivered realistic expectations as to the potential outcome. Anna worked excellently as the conduit for discussions and allowed me to stay at arm’s length from my ex-spouse in a period where all communications had broken down.

Mr. S, Harrogate

Beck Solicitors, and Anna Godfrey in particular, provided the advice and assistance I needed to complete my divorce as painlessly as possible.  From the initial interview to the final details, I did not at any time regret selecting Beck Solicitors to represent me.  Anna had the patience to listen to all the emotional details and weed out the important issues without making me feel foolish or awkward.  Suggestions regarding the legal position of various aspects were delivered taking all details into account and it was very easy to reach decisions that left me feeling strong and comfortable at each stage.

I would honestly have no hesitation in recommending Beck Solicitors.

Mrs. D, Harrogate

It took a long time to finally make my decision to divorce my husband partly held up by the cost and which solicitor do I trust?  When I met Anna for the first time, she totally put me at my ease. She was so supportive and reassuring and from the outset outlined the projected legal costs of my divorce. She was well under budget too. Her communication was very quick and I was kept fully informed all the way.  I highly recommend Anna, she is trustworthy, won’t ‘rip you off’ and will get you a fair settlement.

Mrs. S, Harrogate, North Yorkshire

Having made the decision to file for a divorce I had no idea how to begin the process or indeed what it would actually entail, particularly given that my then-Husband was living overseas and refusing legal support of his own. Acting on recommendation from a friend, I booked a consultation with Anna, who visited me at home and talked me through the divorce proceedings step-by-step, with my Mum and Sister on hand for moral support. I was immediately at ease with Anna and knew from the offset I would be able to trust and rely on her professional advice and experience, as well as being able to approach her with any queries that would inevitably crop up along the way. My high expectations of Anna were more than met over the period of the divorce proceedings and I felt informed and in control along the way, thanks to frequent communication from her on the progress of my case. I felt very much as though Anna cared about my personal case and that I was not just one of many clients, but rather a priority. Thanks to Anna my potentially difficult divorce was made as simple and pain-free as possible with my ex-husband and I both walking away satisfied with our respective settlements, enabling us to part on good terms.


I would like you to know how fantastic Anna has been with my divorce case and nothing was too much trouble when I bombarded her with questions. I couldn’t have got through it without her and my 3 amazing children! I am amazed I have got through this trauma and it’s all down to you and my children. Thank you so very, very much.

Mrs. E - Leeds,

Many of my friends who had got divorced told me horror stories of unfair settlements, stress-inducing meetings and astronomical legal bills. But when I consulted Angela Beck at Beck Solicitors, I was immediately reassured. Angela and her team were reassuring, professional, and incredibly supportive during what was a very low and upsetting time of my life. I was made aware of my projected legal costs from the outset, which meant I could budget accordingly, and there were no nasty surprises. I left my marriage with a fair settlement, and my relationship with my children intact and blossoming. I cannot thank Angela and her team enough for guiding me through my divorce, and allowing me to move on with my life in a smooth transition.


Mr. C, From Ripon

Professional, efficient, and helpful. Beck Solicitors gave me excellent advice and achieved a fantastic settlement for me.


Mrs. G, From Harrogate

I would like to thank Beck Solicitors and in particular Anna Godfrey for what turned out to be a fairly stress free divorce case. I could not have wished for a better person to have dealt with my case in what was a difficult time for me. The personal service I received from Anna was nothing short of superb. I was kept well informed and up to date with everything and was offered sound advice throughout. I have already done so and will continue to highly recommend your services to others. Thanks once again for all your help and hard work.


Mr. R, From Harrogate, 20th September 2013

I am writing to express my personal thanks for the works carried out with all aspects of my divorce. The handling of the Divorce was exceptional. The Solicitor was polite and very professional and made the whole process easy to understand. I was extremely pleased how I was kept up to date with everything that was going on no matter how small. As a whole I was delighted with ‘Beck Solicitors’ and would not hesitate to recommend your company to friends and relatives.


Mr. M, From Harrogate, September 2013

“DIY divorce?…feeling nervous about trusting a ‘distant’ solicitor?…I was feeling exactly the same, but after contacting Angela, my worries subsided.

The handling of my case from start to finish took 5 months and 6 days including the consent order approval by court. The extremely competitive costs quoted at the initial conversation were adhered to even though the consent order was modified on more than a few occasions, these were paid in staged payments established at the start of the process.

There was never an issue with communication and I was always kept abreast of the status.

Therefore, I would like to express my gratitude to everyone concerned at Beck Solicitors in the handling of my case. I was very impressed and reassured with the professionalism and sensitivity in all stages of the process and although divorce is never a happy subject for anyone, I will happily recommend you.

My ex wife and I have a very amicable relationship now, this I feel was helped by the straight forward, professional and above all prompt approach adopted by Beck Solicitors…many, many thanks.”


Mr. Richard L, Milton Keynes, August 2010
