About Fiona Lyon
"We instructed Fiona Lyon to handle our surrogacy parental order. Fiona was very knowledgeable about surrogacy and guided us through the application and full process. She made the end of our journey very smooth and easy. This was helpful considering the long process and how much we had been through up to this point. We cannot thank Fiona enough for her part in completing our surrogacy journey." - Trustpilot 2021
"Fiona Lyon at Antony Gold handled my divorce brilliantly. She was not only very understanding of my personal situation, but also through tough negotiation ensured I ended up with a financial settlement which far exceeded my expectations. My first lawyer wasn’t very proactive and things had stalled, and looked like they would drag on forever. Switching to Fiona meant things came to a resolution quickly, and we avoided hefty court costs. I would recommend her to anyone, especially when you need someone really in your corner." - Trustpilot 2021
