Mr B

"I would like to extend my gratitude and appreciation for your exemplary performance in addressing my conviction, through call-backs, transparency & correct assessments of outcomes; and-through Kevin's procession - retrieving the most benevolent outcome of conditional discharge… Writing to yourselves roughly one month afterwards allows me to fortify the fact that because of your achievements, I have the means to progress in my health, professional, financial and social matters in a far better position, albeit slowly. There will be no doubt in referring yourselves as recommendations to my colleagues in the North West with regards to criminal Solicitation in the future should the need arise."

Mr K

“It has been a joy working with you.

“At a time when so many firms are no longer doing the job right (cuts etc., of course), it's always nice when a firm does. A good team at your place."
