Although I only worked with Charlotte as a client for a short time, I found her knowledge and experience very reassuring and we got the desired outcome with very little fuss. Miss T - Manchester
Bryan [McMahon] was very good with me throughout my case. I found him easy to talk to and very helpful and [he] kept me up to date at all times. Thank you for all your help. Mr J - Wigan
As counsel it is so important to have a good working relationship with the fee earner in the case you are conducting because it is their responsibility to assist with building rapport with the lay client, take instructions, review the evidence and discuss it with you, take witness statements, draft other documents, instruct experts and so on. Rachel [Murphy] carries out all of the above to the highest standard. I am proud of our working relationship. My admiration for her work is simply because she is amongst the very best fee earners I have worked with. I can say with confidence, having worked with her for over a decade, that she leaves no stone unturned in ensuring that justice is done and is very knowledgeable when it comes to criminal law. I would have no reservations in recommending Rachel. I believe her to be a diligent, wise and capable legal professional. In short, she is a pleasure to work with. Counsel H - Manchester
