  • Joseph was absolutely outstanding in all ways – he dealt with me from day one all the way to the trial and having that continuity was so important for me.  This was an incredibly difficult time for me as I had told no one – he explained everything to me, whenever I needed him, no matter how stupid the question, he was always on the end of the phone.  I was very emotional during this process but Joseph linked me up with counselling which has helped enormously – I was petrified about travelling to London from Wales – I was by myself because I had not told my partner – Joseph was brilliant and it was really nice to put a face to the name.  I have now told my partner and this was a big deal for me.

  • You were brilliant from day one and I could not have had anyone better fighting my corner.  My experiences through this process have really restored my faith in the legal process.

  • Joseph and Rebecca were both great.  They really supported me throughout this difficult process.  Joseph was very responsive and always kept me in the loop the whole time – he really empowered me to face my abuser in court face to face.

  • Firstly, I would like to thank David McClenaghan for his initial help with my case, which was then passed to Joseph Carr who has handled my case. I was very impressed with the professional way in which Joseph handled my case from the outset to the very satisfactory outcome.  At all times through our many telephone conversations and our meeting with him at your offices Joseph was so very understanding and compassionate at some difficult times during my case.  Joseph kept me informed at all times how things were progressing and was very good at explaining any complex details or wording to me.  I built up a good rapport with Joseph over the time that he was dealing with my case. The way that Joseph handled everything helped me to make it less traumatic for me. I would definitely recommend your company. I cannot think of anything further to say to improve your excellent service.
