Thoroughly excellent service provided via Wikivorce. Was slightly apprehensive of how it would all work, especially at a distance. However, they were swift, efficient, immensely polite, accurate, and gave regular updates. I would recommend them to anyone.
Can't fault my experience in any way. Brilliant advice / available at short notice for any questions and most importantly swiftly achieved the desired result. Found Austin Kemp after feeling HCB Solicitors were not acting in my best interests and I was correct on all fronts - even including having an appreciation for the fact Divorce is already emotional situation. Also, rather than have to query every suggested next step and be charged for the pleasure; As I'd done a little research of my own and was able to challenge their advice - however we pay Solicitors for their expertise and need to put our trust in them. Austin Kemp thankfully achieved that for me during our first conversation I was already reassured they understood what I wanted and how best to achieve it. Resulting in 7-8 months less work and no court appearances as I had been previously advised by HCB. I THANK YOU DEARLY AUSTIN KEMP. I can start my life again earlier and with a healthier bank balance because of you!!!
Amazing service. For the first time in nearly two years I feel less in a spiral and more in control.
Thoroughly professional, straightforward, timely and reasonably priced. I would recommend this firm to anyone. Thank you Emma and Austen Kemp for a great service.
Thank you so much. You were great. I wasted so much time and money with my previous solicitors and only regret I did not contact you earlier. I have dropped a line to Paul to thank him for referring me to you. I hope you enjoyed the red I sent you as a token of our appreciation.
Austin Kemp provides a pragmatic and honest approach to the individual's journey through Family Law issues. They demonstrate a willingness and capacity to respond to challenging and unpredictable circumstances. The professional, yet personal, service is naturally client centred, but with a realistic and informed view of children's needs. And it has been heartening to have such a caring team walk beside me in the long journey.
I cannot recommend highly enough Austin Kemp as a strong, commercially intelligent and the most effective negotiators. Their negotiation skills are second to none. I have seen firsthand the excellent results this team achieves for their clients.
Just want to say thanks so much for everything. You have been brilliant and very patient. I always felt comfortable calling when asking to clarify certain points of the divorce.
I can honestly say that I am more than satisfied with the management of my case and of my then state of mind. I highly recommend this firm. Thank you.
Amandeep Kooner was not prepared to be swayed from a path of professionalism to accommodate my anxiety and frustration. He would not succumb to taking instructions tit for tat response. He ensured at all times that the response he gave reflected a dignified client with a pleasant demeanour. In so doing he demonstrated his commitment to protect and secure my interests and dignity off which I am most grateful.
Although he has a dual approached role which is business and a duty of care, Amandeep Kooner showed concerns for the level of expenditure that I had already put out with no resolve. His team contained the work to the minimum and produced the maximum results. My case was quickly progressed without compromising compassion and understanding.
Very professional service! Explained everything they were doing for my case every step of the way and really helped me to understand how we would proceed. Thank you!
Intellectually bright, hardworking and extremely professional - Amandeep Kooner took my case at it most difficult as I had come to the end of my ability to remain calm and patient. Up until I instructed Austin Kemp, I had lost all hope that any solicitor could convince me in pursuing a non-retaliatory approach as I was losing ground to allegations and fabrications. Tough, hardworking and extremely professional.
The potential of chatbots and their role in customer service, in particular, has received a lot of attention in the press. Now, it seems that lawyers, too, could ultimately be replaced. But could robots really take the place of family lawyers?
It was a competition between lawyers and a program called CaseCruncher, which hit the headlines late last year.
Designed by four Cambridge University students, CaseCruncher originally started out as a legal chatbot, before being turned into a system that “makes legal decision predictions”, or in other words, predicts the outcomes of cases.
More than 100 commercial lawyers signed up for the competition against CaseCruncher, which involved making hundreds of predictions regarding the outcomes of real complaints about PPI mis-selling.
In the end, CaseCruncher won, with an accuracy rate of 86.6%, compared to the lawyer’s 62.3% accuracy rate.
While these results may at first glance seem like a clear indication that robots may indeed be the future lawyers, even the founders of CaseCruncher seem cautious, saying that evaluating the results is “tricky”. On their website, they point out that the results do not mean that machines are generally better at predicting case outcomes than lawyers, but rather that if the question is precisely defined (they use the example of “was this complaint about PPI mis-selling upheld or rejected by the FOS?”), machines are able to “compete with and sometimes outperform human lawyers”.
So could the same system be used with such apparent success in the field of family law?
Family law, especially laws relating to divorce and financial settlements, is notoriously complicated and difficult to predict, in part due to the level of discretion a judge has when making decisions about cases.
For example, if asked to decide a financial settlement, a judge can take lots of different factors into account, including the financial needs of each party and their current living standards. How much weight a judge gives to each of these elements of a case is up to them. It is difficult to see how a computer program could be built to replicate this.
When it comes to divorce and family law, each couple’s circumstances are very different. Would the computer program being fed the facts and a description of their legal circumstances be enough to predict an outcome? It seems unlikely.
However, it’s important not to dismiss the role of artificial intelligence in the law. CaseCruncher showed that at least in some legal settings, a program that predicts the outcomes of cases could potentially be useful in the future. But for family law, at least, it seems that an equivalent may be some way off, if indeed it ever arrives.
