What clients say
“I’m so thankful to Lou Crisfield for the great assistance she provided all through this long, stressful journey. She wasn’t only professional, she really empathised with the overall difficult time I went through. She remained determined to help me, despite sometimes not being able to contact me directly on the phone. She assiduously engaged with my landlord an myself by calls, emails and letters sent to my home address.
Lou is a great person with a lot of psychology. I only had a chance to speak to Hira Rauf on the phone, followed by emails to consistently update and advise me in regards to my case, Finally, Osman the barrister was so nice and helpful the day of the hearing.
I am so thankful to this great team with such talented professionals and people with good hearts who helped me keep my house this winter. Thank you one more time for bringing a smile to my face and giving me new hope through your excellent job as I was on the verge of being homeless!”
Abdramane Sangare Coulibaly advised by Lou Crisfield and Hira Rauf in the housing team.
“I would like to thank Jasper Blumenthal and Andrew Bowmer for all the work they have both done. I have not been this happy in a long time and have them to thank for that.”
“I just wanted to say a big thank you for all your help with my case. Soon after moving into supported accommodation I successfully bid on a housing association property and moved in before Christmas.
It couldn’t have happened without your work and support, so thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
“God bless you for the good job you are doing for us.”
“Andrew Bowmer, mental capacity and community care solicitor is to be commended on his professionalism in a recent case concerning excessive restrictions in place on a vulnerable adult in a care home. Andrew wrote ‘an impressive letter’ to the local authority making representations, the quality of which was recognised by a professional litigation friend.”
“I have the deepest appreciation and respect for Kate Hammond and her colleagues, and their knowledge about legislation, domestic violence, mental health and children’s developmental stages.
I have worked with Kate when interviewing children. Kate is fully aware of how to approach children and deliver a message at a child’s level of understanding and in a child-friendly manner. Kate is equally skilled in speaking to the parties, in a balanced and fair manner, presenting a neutral message and making sure that they understand her role, as a child’s solicitor, always bearing in mind child’s best interests.
Kate has impressed me in terms of her professional courtesy shown to the parties, her ability to stay focused on the key issues, her ability to challenge lack of parental insight and her ability to effect prolonged engagement with the parties to promote a positive outcome on the case.
Kate Hammond is highly skilled in representing the interests of the children and other vulnerable client groups in front of the Courts, as well as a robust legal advisor, helping and supporting me to make the best and safest recommendations for the children in my work.”
