“Lawyers are like Doctors, -nobody ever wants one or thinks they need one until something goes wrong.. When things went wrong for me I was lucky enough to be introduced to Chantelle and throughout the whole process she went above and beyond the norm. She was there at silly hours to give info and advice and was and is totally amazing and dedicated to helping whatever the situation. I hope I never need a lawyer again but if I do there is only one person to call. Thank you for your amazing skills and determination in all aspects of my case”

Charge: Fraud by misrepresentation and cultivation of Class B Drugs

“We turned to Chantelle at a very difficult time; a family member had made false allegations against my husband and having been very badly failed by our trial legal team were having to try to appeal the conviction. Right from the start it was clear that Chantelle was a very different type of solicitor to what we had experienced thus far. She kept us fully involved in all aspects of the case, going far above and beyond what was expected of her time and time again. She is very knowledgeable, and really digs down into the important details of a case. She is also incredibly kind and supportive, which you really need when you find yourself in a situation where you need a criminal defence solicitor. I cannot recommend her highly enough, only wish we had found her sooner!”

Daniel and Heather
Charge: Sexual Offences (Appeal)

“I really couldn’t put into words how thankful I am for everything you have done for me. You went above and beyond to what you needed to do. You helped me through the process not only with your great legal advice bit on a much more personal level. You helped me with issues I was having within myself and your calm nature helped me stay calm. I really don’t think I could of made it through this process without you. I feel that without your support and guidance I wouldn’t be in a position where I would be so optimistic about life.”

Charge: Rape

“It is easy to write with emotion, when thinking about a time of darkness, that now seems so far away. Around 8 years ago I walked into Chantelle’s office as a broken young man, trying to walk an unknown path. I was arrested and charged with Conspiracy to supply wholesale amounts of Cocaine. Chantelle’s is an excellent solicitor, with the determination and ability to fully prepare you for trial. My trial was six weeks and highly-complex with multiple defendants. She was always sharp with our legal arguments and knew my case inside out. Chantelle held my hand on this tough journey, she kept me focused and most importantly positive. Make the call and get the support you need.”

Charge: Conspiracy to supply Class A Drugs

“Few lines seem so inadequate to express my appreciation for Chantelle’s effort on my behalf. I am truly grateful to her for helping me to no less than get my life back, she did an amazing job and considering what seemed to me like an uphill battle for my confiscation order, she stood up for me. I am not sure if she fully understands the impact of her actions but I have moved forward and have peace in my life, for this I will always be grateful. Hopefully I will not see her again in a professional context!! A big thank you!”
