Client testimonials:

“His knowledge and experience were second to none.  He knew our case inside out and was willing to put in the hours, or at least be available at all hours, when required.  He treated us very well, and no query we had was too trivial.  He was happy to speak on the phone, or by email, as required.  He knew exactly what was required to get the best outcome and what wasn’t worth pursuing.”
