“She did an excellent job in the recent instructions I sent her. It was obvious she fully understood the law and the procedure involved. … She achieved an excellent result.
Additionally she displayed a great deal of maturity, not expected of someone just starting her career and analysed the issues in her instructions and reported back to me of any likely issues that could arise at the hearing. This enabled me to report back to my client and meant that there would be no surprises.”
