How clients rate our Divorce Service...

Advocate Abroad seeks client feedback to ensure continued high-quality service provision.
Kubra was extremely knowledgeable about Turkish law and my options as a dual Turkish/American citizen living abroad. I was blown away by how quickly she assessed my situation. At every step along the way, she provided me with options for the next step. I never felt stuck or pressured to go in a certain direction. Costs were discussed in advance. They were very reasonable for the work performed. I truly felt that I had someone on my side at every step along the way. Kubra is extremely friendly and very professional. I will definitely continue using her services for any other legal issue that I have to address in Turkey.
