“I have had occasion to use solicitors in the past and, with only one exception, I found their service disappointing. People say I am a perfectionist but I would like to put on record I was very impressed with the speed and quality of the service Matthew gave in helping us get our witness statements right and the way Matthew responded to the suggestions we made about the draft order.”
“We had the pleasure of working with Matthew Withers, an outstanding barrister, on an employment law case. We cannot emphasize enough how impressed we were with his exceptional skills and expertise. From start to finish, he demonstrated an exemplary understanding of the law, effortlessly identifying the key points that would make or break our case.
One of the most striking aspects of his performance was his ability to conduct a highly effective cross-examination of witnesses. His astute questioning not only uncovered crucial information but also exposed weaknesses in the opposing side’s arguments.
Throughout the entire process, Matthew’s professionalism shone through. His strategic thinking and analytical approach ensured that our case was presented in the most compelling manner possible. His guidance and support were invaluable, instilling us with confidence.
We would wholeheartedly recommend Matthew Withers to anyone seeking legal representation in an employment law case. His comprehensive knowledge of the law, exceptional courtroom skills, and unwavering commitment to his clients make him the best choice we could have made.”
