The Best Outcome Starts Here

I found your service very good and very prompt. The solicitors advice was very good and very professional . I felt that my case was important to her and felt reassured in her presence. A personal thanks to Louise.

Mr A – West Midlands


Nick Terry was good and knew how to deal with this allegation from the start, he was always a step ahead throughout.

Mr Hussain – West Midlands


Nothing to improve.  I couldn’t ask for a better service. Very helpful and achieved great result. Just would like to say a massive thank you.

Mr M – Bradford


I found that everyone who dealt with me was compassionate and understanding and had an air of confidence that made me more relaxed.

Ms Byfield – Staffordshire


Hannah and Louise were always willing to go through everything with us and to listen to what we had to say and go through all the information we provided.  We felt supported.

Mr L – Kent


Thank you Yvonne Garside and Burton Copeland for everything you have done for me over the last couple of years. Yvonne is not only highly professional, competent and wise, but she has been incredibly supportive and understanding throughout. Without doubt one of the nicest people I’ve ever met and I cannot recommend Yvonne highly enough. Thank you.


Mr L – Manchester


My first contact was with Lisa Nevitt who was friendly and helpful before Gwyn Lewis took control of my case. I immediately felt at ease and in good hands. Gwyn was helpful, informative and was able to handle any questions I had. I can’t thank you enough for bringing matters to a prompt and successful conclusion.

Mr G – South Wales


Excellent Service provided by the fostering Network And Louise Straw in Particular. Cannot thank Louise enough for her help, patience and advice during this time and given the circumstances and restriction due to COVID19.


Mr & Mrs A, Monmouthshire

Massively happy with the help of my barrister getting the Court / Judge to understand my case. Thank you [Rachel Murphy] in helping reduce my sentence. Many many thanks, will use you for any future incidents, although I don’t intend to live the life of crime. Thank you.

Mr P, Manchester


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


I couldn’t ask for a better service. I really can’t think of anything to express the total respect I have for everyone that helped me.

Thank you all so very much.

Mr M


Rob is an excellent solicitor. [My son] has special needs and he explains everything clearly.

Mrs Q


Rob Moussalli was “reliable, kept us well informed and up to date, acted very professionally. Thank you”

Mr S


You [Rob Moussalli] are the best. I never use anyone else and never will.

Master H


You’re the best solicitor around Rob [Moussalli]. I tell all my mates to ask for you.

Master J


Thank you [Rob Moussalli] for everything you have done for my sons over the last couple of years. I don’t know what we would do without you. I recommend you to all my friends.

Ms D


Just to say thanks for all your help Robert [Moussalli] – you’re a diamond.

Mrs M


Yvonne Garside represented a member of our family recently. She was at all times caring, warm and approachable regardless of the day or time. A consummate professional, tenacious, informed and effective, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her most highly.

PK – Manchester


I wish to thank you greatly for the well-informed help you gave me with regard to my recent Fire Arms Revocation Order. It is easy to take for granted the many benefits of NRA membership but I had never imagined that after being a member for a decade that the provision of legal assistance would be useful. It was a surprise to me when the Thames Valley Police (TVP) ordered the revocation of my License especially as it arose from a nearly three decade old financial dispute in another country, no less. You were my first point of contact and explained both the law and made useful suggestions on how to argue the case.

Through my NRA insurance I was able to make a claim to LIM and was put in contact with the knowledgeable solicitor Mr. Tim Andrew of Burton Copeland of Manchester. Presenting TVP with the facts, Mr. Andrew made a persuasive case that the reasons in law for revocation should not apply to my circumstances. The Fire Arms Officer accepted his argument and my License will now be reinstated. The ownership of Fire Arms in the United Kingdom is a privilege and not a right. But ensuring that the law operates fairly however often requires resources.

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.

Mr C – Manchester


“Bryan and Jonathon both had involvement in my case. They completely understood my situation and were in constant contact with me. My case went all the way to court (surprisingly) and I was found not guilty. I cannot thank them enough as they saved my career. Cannot recommend them highly enough.”

Rashid Mahmood (Bradford)


“My wife and I used Burton Copeland solicitors a few months ago. We had the pleasure of Gwyn Lewis and Jonathan Wall. Both exceptional men who know the in’s and out of the job. We were blown away at court with the result, due to the exceptional knowledge of Mr McMahon who again was outstanding. I cannot thank you enough. My wife was quite low with the work situation and then the court appearance but after this she has a new lease of life and I do not really think you understand the impact your kindness, honest approach and availability to put her mind at rest has had on her life. Thank you and best wishes for the future. I will of course not hesitate in forwarding your details to any needy colleague!”

David McDonald (Oldham)


“[Jonathan] was a great help and did extremely well supporting me…Thanks”

Miss Lelo (Manchester)


“We used Jonathan Wall from Burton Copeland he was excellent. The service and setup is very professional was available anytime to answer any questions and the advice he gave was always 100% right. Would like to say a massive thank you from me and my family and would highly recommend Jonathon and his team to anyone. Jonathan Wall is a true asset to Burton Copeland”

Vijal Singh (Manchester)


Having asked several members of the legal profession for a recommendation the name that came forward each time was that of Damian Wall. His preparation throughout was meticulous and he left no stone unturned and his tactical nous caught the prosecution off guard. Damian’s perseverance and his approach to the trial strategy along with that of my counsel Brendan Kelly QC was superb and at the verdict Damian’s reaction said it all, he cared.

Outcome – not guilty.

Testimonial R v A


I would like to thank you for all your help in my case. Your genuine interest in securing an acquittal in my case was of immense comfort to me. I will be forever grateful for the support you showed me.

R v E – Credit Card Fraud – Testimonial


Having completed a customer satisfaction survey, I feel I need to write a letter to express my gratitude and appreciation for all the hard work carried out by Erin during the case. Her commitment and drive to put the case together was exemplary and over the two and a half years of constant reading, discussion and guiding me through the legal process, I could not give any negative comments towards her work ethics. To add to this my QC, Nick Clarke commenting upon receiving his case transcript from Erin, that it was the best he had ever received, which is testament to Erin’s work and dedication. Her communication skills and in fact, her personality, in my opinion, puts her ahead of all other solicitors I have met and is a credit to Burton Copeland. If I am ever asked to recommend a solicitor, I would have no hesitation in recommending Erin.

R v S Testimonial


Big thank you to Erin Cowley for all of her hard work on my partners case which had the best turn out we could of had! Erin was always willing to work outside of her office hours for us and would never fail to make my partner feel like he was in the best hands as he really was, I just really can’t thank Erin enough for everything, I will always remember what she had done for us and I will continue to praise her to my friends and family and most of all I highly recommend Erin!

If ever I even needed a little reassurance I could call Erin and she would 100% make me feel better about any worries I had at the time, I have never worked with somebody so professional and so honest yet so friendly at the same time, I will never forget this case because it was a horrendous time for me and my partner but mostly i’ll never forget how much worse it may have been if we had anybody else representing us.

Thanks You so much from the bottom of my heart once again!!

Miss Carr – Manchester


Dear James, Emma, Liz and everyone at Burton Copeland.

Thank you very much for all your help and advice throughout the past few months.

Ms B (Stockport)


I had to write because it is very rare in these times to be able to say thank you and mean it. Unfortunately my son found himself in trouble and…we instructed one of your solicitors to represent him.

In the first instance, Laura Ward Jones attended court and I found her not only to be highly competent but very understanding of mine and my families distress and I thank her very much for her support.

The case was then handed to Suzanne Dooley. I can’t praise her enough! Her standard of professionalism, understanding and support were second to none. She made herself available to me day and night and kept me informed throughout the whole process. She worked tirelessly until the outcome we expected was achieved…..

This has been a very trying time for me and when difficult times present themselves, to have the opportunity to be represented by people who treated the case as if it was one of there own family members was heart warming and gave me the strength to get through all of this.

I thought in this horrible world we lives and the fact that I know you deal with difficult issues on a daily basis that it was appropriate to send this letter to you so that you could see that the work you and your colleagues do really does make a difference to people’s lives. I thank you all from the bottom of my heart.

Mrs S – Assault matter


I was charged with conspiracy to pervert the course of justice and sent for trial to Manchester crown court. I chose Burtoncopeland solicitors to represent me on recommendation and their firm’s profile. I selected Yvonne to represent me. Yvonne was my light during a dark period of my life. She gave me hope, strength and laughter making the whole court ordeal a much easier journey. Being a professional and being unfairly charged for perverting the court of justice came as a huge shock to myself and took up a year and a half of my life, emotions and thoughts. Yvonne thankfully was my star who enriched me with her bright vibes and positive spirits and helped me in the most wonderful and genuine of ways. She became not just my solicitor but a dear friend. Yvonne aided me all the way and supported me during the roller coaster process. Thankfully, all charges had been dropped. All thanks to Yvonne and her wonderful work. Thank you Yvonne for keeping my spirits high during a low period. I would recommend Yvonne to everyone for her energy, her compassion, her sincerity and profound knowledge in her field. Her attitude to her work is phenomenal. Her empathy is outstanding. I for one am eternally grateful to Yvonne for going above and beyond for me and my family and would highly recommend her.

“Hi Nick, This is just to say a massive massive thank you to you, Julian and Hannah for all you have done for me. Brain injury is a subject even the professionals are unsure about, so for you to believe in me and work so hard on my case and do all you have done for me, even I am lost for words. You may have only been ‘doing your jobs’ but for me it’s a life changer. A million thank you’s and then some. Also a special mention to Hannah who I have only just met, but she was fab on the day. Lovely woman. Right I’ll say goodbye. (I’ll miss this!) Massive fond regards Davena”
