Recommendations from public access clients:

"From the moment I made contact I felt that I was in safe hands. Not only was my enquiry answered quickly but Jason was genuinely empathetic regarding my case and its implications. After months of stress I felt reassured that I had made the right choice and it certainly was. He was highly efficient and accommodating. He was honest with me throughout and gave very clear logical advice."

"Jason’s insight and understanding into A’s condition was so important and his ability to engage in such a warm and calm fashion was unbelievably helpful."

"Prior to trial I found Jason’s advice invaluable in making decisions (and I am so glad I followed it). In court his presence and experience shone through and his advocacy was simply superb. I cannot recommend him highly enough."
