What clients say:

Firdous Patel and Mike always kept us updated and everything they said would happen, right from the outset from meeting us happened. The team instructed experienced Counsel who was very supportive and of great help at the Inquest and the team was there every day with us.

Firdous was with us throughout our journey and the entire week at inquest, in a supportive and compassionate way that we will always be forever grateful and we will never forget her role, working alongide Mike.
