WHAT OTHERS SAY
"Ben really was an incredibly good representative to have in court. Behind the scenes he was efficient and helpful with the preparatory paperwork, explaining things clearly and respecting any time I needed to make decisions. In court he was calm and represented me in a clear but firm manner. I would highly recommend Ben as a family barrister to anyone that needed one." - Representation of a mother.
“I cannot thank you enough for your help and support at Court and how much I appreciated your calm and extremely professional but firm manner. It has been a stressful time getting to the outcome we got at Court and once we had finished it was a huge weight lifted off my shoulders. Once again many thanks for attending court and I couldn’t recommend you enough.” - Representation of a father.
