Tim Edgeley gave an excellent service throughout my case and kept me updated regularly.
The unexpected experience of a H&S Executive prosecution was facing my company and this proved to extend over a period of several months because of the slow process. I instructed Poole Alcock to handle the matter on behalf of the company and I found Dan Brooks, the Partner who heads up Criminal Litigation, to be extremely supportive and responsive from initial enquiry and instruction through to the hearing and thereafter. The process did prove to be stressful but Poole Alcock walked us through each stage and ensured that it went as smoothly as possible. I was specifically grateful for Dan’s advice on the day of the trial. Their advice proved to be accurate and their recommendations were offered sympathetically and in a measured way.
I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending the services of Poole Alcock to any company facing similar circumstances.
Tim was very easy to talk to and provided appropriate re-assurance.
Mr Flood is a wizard in Court!
Your professionalism and commitment to my case was exceptional. Your attention to detail and also the time you spent preparing with me for the court date was above and beyond expectations.
The administration support and communication from Poole Alcock was exceptional throughout, with prompt return of phone calls and correspondence. I must thank Ruth Holloway in particular for her commitment and tenacity in successfully appealing the initial refund of my legal fees. Thank you.
