I contacted Nadia a few years ago to ask her to act on my behalf on a personal injury claim.
This was a very complicated and time consuming case involving a very large multi national, multi disciplined organisation.
Nadia is very approachable and has a very friendly manner that immediately put me at ease as I felt that at a time when I needed someone, she genuinely cared about what had happened and sought for the very best possible outcome.
Whilst Nadia listened to my arguments, her legal knowledge drove me in the right direction that lead to a very satisfactory conclusion in my favour and successfully avoided a longer more emotional and stressful legal case through the courts.
I can’t thank Nadia enough and if you are looking for a lawyer to have your back, she is a fabulous lawyer to have in your corner.
Thank you Nadia for all your help and guidance.

Brian Shakespeare,

Nadia was very helpful to me in my hour of need dealing with an employment matter. She offered me clear and simple solution-orientated advice. She was very responsive and prompt in her replies both to myself and the other party. She made a difficult situation easier and I appreciate her efficiency and honest advice. I would recommend her to those seeking support and advice on employment matters.

Bonnae,

Nadia is precise and to the point. She took the step beyond the financial agreement and helped me through the issue I had with the company I founded. I found Nadia professional and available when you need a lawyer who is well aware of law. Highly recommended.

Mohd,
