"I am delighted to be able to write for the record that I have found
the work undertaken by Ms Nazia Rashid on my behalf to have been of
an excellent standard.
Throughout my case spanning over 4 years I found Nazia’s ability to
deal with complex matters of evidence and law to be fantastic and
somewhat comforting given the often emotionally draining stress that
the litigation was having on me. Nazia was entirely approachable and
accessible recognising the need in listening to my concerns outside
the legal arena.
Nazia provided a speedy resolution to a protracted and acrimonious
dispute and I am very grateful to her and her team for this. Her
costs were highly competitive for a city firm and I would
wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone requiring practical advice
and a strategy to resolving ancillary relief matters.
Nazia’s professionalism and skill is endorsed by the outcome that
she achieved. Her up to date knowledge and legal insight into
addressing issues arising often at the last minute proved invaluable
in securing a fantastic outcome.
Thank you very much for your sheer determination, robust approach
and hard work". (Ms.S.K).
