Claire Tapper was incredible, her support, humour and no nonsense approach were exactly what I needed to get through a very dark time. Claire was always at the end of the phone whenever I needed advise. Together with her no nonsense approach and hilarious sense of humour, she pulled me through!
Claire arranged for Barrister Rachel Shenton to represent me in court, Rachel was also amazing! Together they were a formidable team!
Thank you so much ladies!
I would highly recommend Burtoncopeland to represent anyone with legal dilemmas.
