Client Comments

  • “We have had brilliant service from Hodge Jones & Allen. Our son had been called in for a voluntary police interview and we were so worried he would end up with a criminal record. From the first phone call I knew HJA cared as I was asked: “and how are you coping?” which was so nice as I was consumed by worry. Then Marina Afzal-Khan called me back and explained everything and that they would take our case on under Legal Aid…”
  • “Dear Marina Afzal-Khan I am writing to express my sincere gratitude for your representation in my recent legal case.You were a compassionate and professional advocate for me from the start.
