“Dear Jonathan,

I am writing this immediately after my trial at the SDT.  You have saved my career. I am in tears – I could have lost everything, but you have saved my career today as a Solicitor and I have my life back. I just cannot thank you enough.

All I can say – it was the best decision I ever made instructing you eighteen months ago and I am so very glad I did.

Any solicitor going through an SRA investigation and if they face going to the SDT would be completely misguided in not seeking representation.

You discovered flaws in their case and many inaccuracies. You were able to challenge the SRA on these points because of your vast amount of knowledge. Had  I not instructed you the incorrect law would have been applied to my matter and the outcome would have been detrimental to me.

If anyone wants to give themselves any chance  then they should get representation as soon as they can. I cannot emphasise this enough.

No solicitor wants to be before the SDT, but you fought for me all the way to the end, you knew my case inside out.

Your knowledge, intelligence and professional skill in dealing with such sensitive matters, which carry with them the most serious and potentially life-altering consequences is truly remarkable.

I witnessed first hand your in depth knowledge of regulatory law and case law that you cited which would prove relevant. Most importantly your advocacy. I have never witnessed  anything like it but your cross examination, your submissions and the challenges you put to the SRA over this two day hearing I can only describe as phenomenal.

I have been through the darkest and most traumatic 18 months of my life and I can honestly say that your professional support and guidance throughout has been nothing short of outstanding.

You were clear from the outset in terms of managing expectations, timescales, negotiations that never came to fruition and at all times gave me straight and frank advice, in such a way that offered me much needed reassurance at the very lowest of points.

Your tremendous efforts have ensured that the correct law was applied and I received a just and fair outcome. And for that, me and my family are truly and eternally grateful.

Thank you Jonathan”
