Reviews:

I found myself in a dreadful position, I had been instantly dismissed for whistleblowing. This was a complicated case as it was whistleblowing re: sexual abuse, so many feel powerless in such a position, I did, and so did the person it happened to. You have to be the most attentive and patient solicitor I've ever known. You guided me extremely well through this process of 'a battle against an injustice'. You've a great amount of patience and every single time I called you, you always answered me back and always gave me moral support. We spoke so much I made a joke and said, "What will I do when this is all over, as you became a huge amount of support in my life. A few lines aren't enough to say how much I appreciate your support and guidance and your powerful professionalism during such a difficult time. We don't have enough of this type of commitment in the world today - but I did with you. I was so lucky to have you.
