“I was in the unfortunate position to require the services of Jonathan Goodwin following a surprise visit from the SRA. I can honestly say that the past 3 years have been the worst profession experience of my life having practised as a solicitor, with an unblemished record, for over 20 years. Whilst I appreciate, as a profession, we have to have a regulator, unfortunately the way that the SRA treats solicitors and conducts their investigations is appalling. Throughout the investigation I was kept completely in the dark by the SRA and made to feel like a criminal. Throughout this whole process Jonathan Goodwin has been exceptional, with his non- judgmental approach and wealth of knowledge and experience. With his help we were able to provide a robust defence to the allegations which resulted in the best possible outcome all round. There is no doubt in my mind that without Jonathan’s help I would have been facing a 5 day hearing in the SDT. I also believe that when the SRA see Jonathan’s name on the case they do take note.
Having spent his entire career dealing with SRA prosecutions, there is very little that he hasn’t dealt with both in and out of the SDT, he really is a true expert in the field. I cannot thank Jonathan enough for all his help and reassurance during this extremely difficult time.”
