Kind things our clients and
peers say about us

For around 12 years, the housing law team at Miles & Partners Solicitors has been supporting the Tower Hamlets Law Centre by supervising their free monthly drop-in housing advice sessions. 

Simon Marciniak and Lou Crisfield take it in turns to supervise a group of volunteers whose role is to provide advice and support to people with housing problems.

Martin South, Chief Executive at the Tower Hamlets Law Centre explains about the work of the centre:

“It is our pleasure and our privilege to be able to help so many people overcome the problems they face. It is always a good feeling to win a case.”

Yet that sense of accomplishment comes with the knowledge that the problems our clients face are multiplying faster than we can help to solve them. The legacy of the banking crisis, austerity policies, the ‘hostile environment’ for immigrants and now, the looming prospect of Brexit and more are all taking their toll. 

We will soon be embarking on a new chapter in the law centre’s history – one which will see us grow so we can help more people and take a more strategic approach to some of our work to improve access to justice for London’s East End community. 

He concludes by saying “We are deeply grateful to everyone at Miles & Partners for their unflagging support for our work and our clients. We simply could not achieve all this without them.”
