“You did a fantastic job and we got a great result. You had clearly spent a lot of time preparing and considering the various issues. Your cross-examination was spot on. You were calm yet tenacious, overall a fantastic job and I am very grateful.” Instructing solicitor.
“Nicole really has been a huge support in our case and I was very pleased and grateful to have her on board. She has been accessible, practical and thorough. It has not been the most straightforward matter but knowing I could rely on Nicole has made it much easier for me to assume conduct of this case.” Instructing solicitor.
