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.
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.
