Thanks so much for the work you have done Robert [Moussalli]– you have been brilliant again. I rely on you to keep my son out of jail. I tell all my friends to use you. Miss C - Manchester
Yvonne instructed me to represent a client facing vast and complex allegations of conspiracy to defraud. She was able through a total dedication to our client’s case to provide him with great reassurance and inspire his confidence. With her help we were able to encourage him to properly engage with the real issues in his case. It was my pleasure to lead for the defence with Yvonne in the team and fighting our corner with all her energy, drive and enthusiasm. She showed excellent client care skills and was always charming, engaging and good humoured. The fact that we won so many of the important issues in the case was in no small measure due to her industry and client care skills. When Yvonne says she will do something, she does it without question or hesitation and with a total commitment to the client and the matter in hand. It was a pleasure to work with Yvonne in this case and I look forward to the next opportunity. Counsel P - London
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
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
