I just wanted to place on record my gratitude for [Kim Holden's] hard work and commitment over the last (almost) three years. I went into the proceedings completely at ease and content and this was due to the extensive preparation and attention to detail. Mr A - Wakefield
I was highly impressed with the way in which my case was handled by Jonathan from my initial instruction to its conclusion, Both my partner and I were treated with the utmost courtesy and no query was too small nor too great for Jonathan and the team. He went above and beyond to help me. Jonathan explained the whole legal process in relation to my case in a clear and comprehensible manner. He also treated me with respect and total honesty ensuring that I fully understood the available options open to me and their possible outcomes. With his guidance and support, I was able to face up to and make some difficult decisions…I would not hesitate in recommending Jonathan and Burton Copeland.
