“The clerk’s room is excellent. Jaime Brooks and Thomas Bennett, are amongst the best family clerks I have worked with. Both Jaime and Thomas have excellent knowledge of the various types of cases and are almost always able to offer cover for my matters. On the rare occasion when the cover is not immediately available, the clerks will make every effort to assist.” – Legal 500 2021
“Tom and Jaime provide a great service and are personable and friendly clerks. If there is ever an issue, for example, a barrister going part-heard, we are informed immediately and they work exceptionally hard to resolve it.” – Legal 500 2021
