I just wanted to place on record my gratitude for [Kim Holden's] hard work and commitment over the last (almost) three years. I went into the proceedings completely at ease and content and this was due to the extensive preparation and attention to detail.

Anthony Smith has a deserved first-class reputation in serious and organised Criminal defence work. His dedication and commitment to his clients is second to none and the service he provides them is absolutely faultless. From the barrister's perspective his case preparation is immaculate and he's not just an astute tactician but an absolute delight to work alongside.

Yvonne instructed me to represent a client facing vast and complex allegations of conspiracy to defraud. She was able through a total dedication to our client’s case to provide him with great reassurance and inspire his confidence. With her help we were able to encourage him to properly engage with the real issues in his case. It was my pleasure to lead for the defence with Yvonne in the team and fighting our corner with all her energy, drive and enthusiasm. She showed excellent client care skills and was always charming, engaging and good humoured. The fact that we won so many of the important issues in the case was in no small measure due to her industry and client care skills. When Yvonne says she will do something, she does it without question or hesitation and with a total commitment to the client and the matter in hand. It was a pleasure to work with Yvonne in this case and I look forward to the next opportunity.
Counsel P - London
I first met Yvonne many years ago. Yvonne will not tell you what you want to hear, no pie in the sky or false hopes, just pure true honesty backed up with hard work. As a result Yvonne is not someone I just contact for legal advice, but a true friend which has come about by her dedication to her job, compassion and warmth.
