Recent feedback on his personal injury work includes:

“We instructed Luke to represent our client with regard to a matter whereby the negligent driver's insurer refused to satisfy a Judgment under s.151 of the Road Traffic Act 1988. The opposition's stance was based on the fact they believed that they were not provided valid notice pursuant to s.152 of the same Act. Luke was honest and excelled at the hearing; acquiring us the result we wanted.”  Senior paralegal, claimant solicitors

“Luke did an outstanding job for me in court this morning… real credit to chambers. I look forward to instructing him again in the future. Thank you for introducing him to me and the firm.” Partner, regional solicitors


‘Thank you for this morning. You made it easy for me to understand the process, and in agreeing the sensible items prior to the hearing, made it more straightforward.‘
Client, financial remedies proceedings

“Luke is an excellent communicator and builds a great rapport with clients. He has a professional and approachable manner, which places any client at ease in often difficult circumstances. Luke has been able to drill down the issues within a case and approach those in a methodical and academic manner which has resulted in a first class service and result for the client overall. ”
