From the moment of being arrested to leaving the courtroom five months later has to be the worst time in my life to live through. Rachel made this horrendous time so much more bearable. I had never had any dealings with the law in my 44 years. From first meeting Rachel at the police station where she explained everything to me clearly & throughout the legal process, Rachel could not have been more understanding of my husband (first talking to him on the day of my arrest & explaining everything & throughout the process) & I’s situation.
It was clear from first meeting her of her vast legal knowledge but in addition to being extremely professional she’s a very personable person. We were in regular contact with Rachel (emails, phone calls, meetings) which helped so much as we were so worried & anxious about the whole situation. I certainly could not have coped throughout as well without having such a brilliant solicitor defending me.
It is without a shadow of doubt I would most definitely have not received a non-custodial sentence if it wasn’t for Rachel, which I will always be eternally grateful for. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
