Client Comments:

"It has been an absolute pleasure to work with you on this case, and to say that you have all gone above and beyond for the clients would be an understatement. I can honestly say that I’ve never worked with members of chambers who’ve put their hearts and souls into a case in the way which you all did." (Jennifer Lund, Partner at Irwin Mitchell). 

I just wanted to email to say how grateful I am for everything you have done on my case. Not many that are or have been in my situation have had the opportunity have someone as amazing as you defend them. Thanks to you and the outcome we received they won't have to worry on that front now.

A client, Charlie Lewington (September 2018)

thank you for your assistance in my case in conjunction with the rest of the legal team from Barcan Kirby.

At last, there was closure in Jan 2018 after a very stressful three and a half years for me and you managed with their help in obtaining my compensation. I think I am finally getting my life back together and managing to move.

Once again could not have done it without you.

A client, DT (September 2018)

"I wanted to say a sincere thank you for your brilliant performance as my advocate on Monday 4th December 2017. It was extraordinary to see such a skilful advocate succinctly and calmly representing the arguments. You are one of the few QC's that I can say have the ability to command an audience, be passionate, persuasive and deliver and I have used many as a Junior since I was called in 1991."

A Barrister client who was acquitted by the Inns of Court Tribunal of all BSB charges (2017).

"I would like to take this opportunity to extend my sincere thanks and appreciation for your invaluable work on my daughter S's case following her MVA in the UK in October 2009.

Having just settled the case after four and a half long years, I have been most impressed by both your and Daryl’s professionalism, patience, understanding, flexibility and humour despite the challenges faced with us residing 'down under'.

I have particularly appreciated you ensuring each step in the legal process was explained, in 'layman's' terms to ensure my discussions with S resulted in informed decisions being made.

As S’s 'litigation friend', your and Daryl’s approach gave me assurance and confidence during a very unfamiliar and challenging time – we could not have asked for a better representative.

Throughout the entire process, I have felt supported and well informed and it was evident we were all working together towards a common goal - S's best interest and to secure and protect her financial future.

Thanks to you both, S is now in a position to move forward in life and enjoy a more positive future."
