What some of our clients say about us…

Idal was so professional and prompt and organised. She has a wonderfully empathetic telephone manner while she keeps to the relevant issues. She always repeated what she was going doing to and who she was going to speak to, back to me so that I was aware of action points and time lines. She was EXCELLENT!” – [Mrs B (on behalf of her son who had been charged with breaches of restraining orders: may 2016)]

Richard Wood and Idal Denmar provided first class support and assistance when I really needed it. They could have done nothing more. Thank you – [Mr G: Charged with domestic violence offences: June 2016]
