When my father was accused of sexual assault, as a family we were all completely overwhelmed and in a state of utter shock. But from the moment we met Hilary I was confident that she would take on my dad’s case with professionalism and care, and this is exactly what we got. She worked tirelessly to ensure justice was served and I can truthfully say that my faith has been restored in the legal system because of her.
She is an excellent solicitor and we are forever grateful for her hard work and support. She is someone who really listens to clients, keeps them informed at all times and ensures their case is looked after with such care leaving no stone unturned. Nothing is too much for her.
Hilary was indispensable to us during the 16 months my husband was on police bail, owing to an extremely distressing false allegation. Her knowledge, expertise and professionalism were evident from our initial conversation. The representations she drafted and submitted in his defence were faultless and set out our response to the allegation meticulously, leaving no detail uncovered.
She never failed to keep us updated on developments and discuss in detail any subsequent implications and the best course of action. Hilary’s compassion, empathy and unfailing willingness to talk matters through exhaustively helped to put our minds at rest throughout our horrendous ordeal. She showed an absolute steadfast determination to bring the appropriate resolution to our situation. We cannot recommend her highly enough.
On the 3rd of May 2017 I was arrested for an allegation of sexual assault. This was a complete and utter shock for me and my family and we were at a total loss of what to do. I informed my father immediately and he then swiftly found Hilary. We discussed everything and straight away I felt at ease with Hilary as she immediately understood what I was trying to say, even though it was extremely difficult to discuss, and immediately made me feel safe and comforted that I was in the right hands.
Throughout the entire case Hilary was on hand anytime of day to answer questions I had and allay any fear I had manifested in my own mind. At each and every step Hilary was on hand to reassure and guide me professionally. Not once did I ever feel that Hilary wasn’t taking my concerns or questions seriously. She always answered everything in full and would often have to answer the same questions over and over again for me but never lost her professionalism or patience. She has been my solace through all of this horrific ordeal.
Hilary is one of the smartest people I have ever met and her talent is limitless. I have never met anyone that works as hard as Hilary. She is relentless in her pursuit of justice. The detail in this case was the most important and Hilary captured every single bit of it when others did not. She always managed my expectations too, which was greatly appreciated, she never got my hopes up when it wasn’t warranted but equally she put me on a level where I should be. She is kind and gentle but formidable.
I was acquitted of my charge and a Not Guilty verdict was given following an application of no case to answer. I cannot thank her enough for giving me my life back.
