In House Course Testimonial
‘Mena Ruparel is a knowledgeable, authoritative and engaging Lecturer who encouraged the delegates to interact with her; ‘Hot Topics in Family Finance’ contained a wealth [excuse the pun] of useful information for Family Lawyers’
I first met Mena whilst studying for my undergraduate law degree during my placement year at Goodhand and Forsyth, where she was engaged as a consultant solicitor in the firm’s family department. I was initially interviewed for my position at Goodhand and Forsyth by Mena and she later became my training supervisor.
"I first met Mena a few years ago, just a couple of years after I started practicing family law. Mena was lecturing near Regent Street and I remember it being all about matrimonial finance for family lawyers. I was immediately struck by her warmth and she engaged straightaway with me and was interested in what I had to say.
"Mena Ruparel is one of those disarming persons who mixes her knowledge, skill and experience with a generous personality and good natured practicality.
Her vast competence is reflected in her position as a senior matrimonial practitioner, lecturer, trainer and arbitrator.
"I would though like to take the opportunity of saying that having attended family law and other subject courses over 36 years I have never found any lecturer better than Mena Ruparel".
Pension specialist testimonial
"I've worked with Mena on many divorce cases and found her to be technically excellent. She always has a firm understanding of her clients position and what is right for them."
"I am writing to let you know how happy I have been with the help Mena has been to me through what has been the most difficult time in my life."
“The best seminar I have ever been to and possibly the most knowledgeable speaker – lots of extra content about the cases which makes it interesting.”
"Mena and I very successfully worked together on an Arbitration to deal with the financial aspects of a divorce, which had a number of complicating features.
Blog writing testimonial
"Mena has been ghost writing informative family law pieces for our website and a variety of local press for some months now. Her suggested articles are topical and are written in an intelligent but easy to comprehend way for the lay person.
Having known Mena Ruparel as a family lawyer advising and representing a considerable number of our mediation clients, I have no hesitation in strongly recommending her. I consider her to be ethical, highly competent and exceptionally focussed on helping clients in separation and divorce reach a dignified and fair conclusion.
