Approach and ethos
I’m good at listening to clients and empathising with their problems.
What clients say
Very good, hard working and fought hard to win my case. Had to go an appeal and won it hands down.
Highly likely to recommend Miles & Partners to a friend or colleague.
Matthew Daly advised by housing lawyer Jasper Blumenthal
I cannot express our gratitude enough for how much Miles & Partners helped us. Jasper was the nicest and most patient young man who was willing to listen. Honestly, I cannot not thank him enough. Finally, by the end of the day I received a call from Rajea Sultana that she would like to take the case. As soon as I first spoke with Rajea, her initiative and energy immediately made me feel better and gave me some hope. Most importantly, Rajea is the nicest and most helpful person I have met in legal circles. Her professional, but also human approach truly makes a difference. She helped us with the case, she listened, and she was always available. Simply put – if you ever need help, Rajea is your person!

Thanks again for all you said and did. You stuck with me, and your words all came true. I’m thankful for your help. You are amazing.’
