“Counsel was, as usual, fully available to us throughout the duration of the case, by telephone and email.  He explained everything clearly to a client, who had considerable difficulties, and obtained instructions from a client, who might have been perceived by others to have an ambivalent approach to the proceedings due to his difficulties.  He reported promptly by telephone post each hearing and provided detailed attendance notes.  He was fully committed throughout to securing the best outcome for the client possible.  Even other parties in the case commented on the level of legal representation that father received.

I have of course used Counsel in a number of cases and have always been extremely pleased with the level of representation and care provided by him to his professional and lay client.”

The client reported specifically that … ‘Although John has a no nonsense approach, he is human, and explained everything fully and was always happy to address my questions, no matter how many times I asked. He was superb in Court, and achieved a fantastic result for me and my family. I can’t thank him enough’

Mr and Mrs C instructing Gayle Ashley through Solicitors – January 17

“I would be grateful if you could pass on my sincere thanks to Christopher Wall and this endorsement of him.  Christopher has been a diligent, precise and insightful professional in execution of his brief to me.  I found him to be a proactive challenger of my account of events, analytical and quick to validate or query in order to establish the facts and then incisive in his determination of how they should be marshalled and presented.

Consequently I felt clear on the potential strengths and weaknesses of my case as I stood for the cross examination.  I actually have a regard for the approach and aggression the opposing barrister took with me however Christopher’s  professionalism and thoroughness was such that I was well prepared for what followed, and the strength and effectiveness of the barrister’s tactics were undermined.

This was further evidenced with his consummate summary to the judge, during which he not only presented the case clearly and logically but also carefully reminded the judge of the legalities around the case whilst calmly countering points made only minutes before.

I have no hesitation in endorsing Christopher and have no hesitation in recommending him for future clients.”
