Jane is the most brilliant barrister I have ever come across and this includes movies and all.

Her forensic abilities are beyond belief, honestly I am lost for words, she’s simply wonderful.

The client has asked me to pass on her gratitude to Corey, for all his efforts on the case.  She is delighted with the outcome and that it was settled by consent in the end.  She found Corey to be very clear, and concise.

Everything was in order as I would expect. Marie discussed matters with both me and Client before the remote hearing and it was evident that she was on top of her brief.

After the hearing I received a call from client to say that Marie had done brilliantly and that he was very happy with the service he has received.

Mr F from Solicitors Instructing Marie Crawford – April 2021

Ms V from Solicitors instructing Dean Thistle – March 2021

Just to confirm that we were very pleased with Melanie’s representation for Ms T. She really did go above & beyond which was much appreciated, on such a sensitive matter for the client. Melanie really couldn’t have done more for the client.

Ms T from Solicitors instructing Melanie Mcintosh – March 2021

In relation to the service by Paul Tapsell and Arron Smith, I was extremely happy. Arron was very prompt and diligent from the clerking side and Paul was (as ever) swift to deal, to the point in his written opinion and very effective in court. Additionally, he was not only willing but most eager to assist and spend time on a very late issue I raised even though the lateness was entirely my fault! I continue to regard Paul as a massively safe pair of hands.

Mr S from Solicitors Instructing Paul Tapsell – March 21

“I was very happy with the service from Christian, as was the client. Christian was very helpful in speaking to the client beforehand so that she felt comfortable and knew how things would work. He also promptly gave me feedback after the hearing by phone followed by a detailed attendance note, and was happy to clarify some additional points with me afterwards too.

I was very pleased and impressed with the service and level of communication, and I would certainly instruct Christian again.”

Ms T from Solicitors Instructing Christian Fox – February 21

“The experience I received was excellent both from the clerking team (and it always is) and Louisa.

Louisa was very impressive. Her knowledge of the case and the law was very thorough. We had a conference and Louisa combined professionalism with a friendly manner with the client. The Position Statement was clear and hit the main points succinctly. In terms of the attention to detail and the time spent drafting the Order at the end of the Hearing, Louisa made sure that the client and I were kept involved throughout. I would thoroughly recommend Louisa.”

Mr P Instructing Louisa Adamson – January 21

Ms V Instructing Holly Coates through the DPA Scheme – April 20

“A note of thanks for me personally and corporately, from the team

last week began from a position of intransigence and had the potential to be unresolvable – as evidenced by the mediators apprehension.

While the spirit of mediation underpinned the day, the advice and guidance offered by yourself and our excellent barrister were invaluable.

And of course there is no doubt that the outcome was excellent.”

Mr M Instructing John Nee through Solicitors – March 20

“Melanie was fantastic in her role, and very reassuring in what was, as you can imagine, a very stressful situation.  I felt so much better once she arrived at court and took charge of the situation! It was also useful to have the same barrister throughout the court appearances as she understood the case completely. She took a ‘no nonsense’ approach and was completely fixed on getting the right result, which she did. This, again, was very reassuring.”

Ms F from Solicitors Instructing Melanie McIntosh – March 2020

Ms R from Solicitors Instructing Dean Thistle – December 19

“The service received from Counsel and the Clerks Room was very good, especially as documents were served at short notice, including the Bundles for the hearings, the second bundle index was initially incomplete and there was much “last minute” paperwork for the Clerks Room to pass on and for Counsel to read. Counsel was at court for longer than expected at both hearings, yet was able to report back to me and deal with what was a somewhat fraught and emotional matter in a very professional way.”

Ms R from Solicitors Instructing John Nee – December 19

“As always, service from Nicole Jennings has been exemplary.”

A fantastic overall approach.
