“I will surely recommend your service to anyone that requires a good barrister like yourself.”
“I found instructing a barrister directly a straightforward matter, without undue formality. I was informed of the fee early after an initial reading of the papers. After the hearing I was very glad that I had instructed a barrister rather than dealing with it myself.”
