“When I was first notified of an investigation into my conduct by my professional body, I was shocked! I had done nothing wrong and as the shock wore off, I knew it was best to seek legal advice and remove the emotion from the situation.
I approached a number of solicitors to get some initial advise. The first few solicitors set about scaremongering and then laying out their extensive expertise and quoting large legal fees for their work. By the time I got around to contacting Jon, I was feeling extremely hopeless. That changed after I spoke with him.
From the onset, Jon was very pleasant and professional. Jon has a very calm and can do nature about him. I was instantly at ease and felt the situation would be in hand under Jon’s guidance. He was the only solicitor who took the time to understand my case before laying out his advice on the best way to move forward. Jon was upfront in addressing that he had no previous experience in dealing with ny particular professional body, however, he reassured me that the principles behind such cases were similar, if not the same, for such investigations. He evaluated the work that would be required, and provided me with an upfront fee based on that. Jon was considerate of the fact that I am a Trainee and he kept his cost at the lower end for me. This is a demonstration of the type of person he really is.
The timelines surrounding my case were tight and Jon worked to turn my response around quickly. Jon’s approach was to stop the investigation early on and prove there was no merit to the allegation made. The response to my professional body was extremely well drafted and ultimately the investigation was dismissed.
Throughout the whole process I was able to contact Jon at any point, and if he wasn’t immediately available, he would always get back to me very quickly. His team are also extremely professional and helpful in escalating queries for Jon’s attention. Even during a pandemic, there was always someone on the end of the phone to take my call!
All in all, this was an extremely worrying time for me and Jon, I cannot thank you enough for helping me. I wish you every success and would give my full endorsement to your legal services and expertise. To anyone seeking help against a professional misconduct allegation, Jon is one of the best out there!”
