‘Ruth Bross and her associates are thoughtful, efficient and absolutely thorough. There’s a lot of cynicism about divorce lawyers, but when I say that all my problems – which were considerable, difficult and had a public dimension – were handled by Ruth Bross with compassion and discretion, I mean it.’
