Client Comments

  • “My dealings with HJA, my solicitor Laura O’Brien, and her paralegal Somaya Yassine were so supportive from beginning to end. I have Parkinson’s Disease, which at times causes me anxiety and confusion. Laura made me feel so relaxed that I was even able to go into the witness box and speak my truth to the Court rather than leave all the talking to her. She really knows her stuff and we got the justice that we deserved.”
  • “I would like to thank HJA for their valuable work supporting me and especially Laura O’Brien, Somaya and Ife Thompson for their support.”
  • “This team have been supporting me for the last two years. I am sixty years old and on Disability Benefits, but my advice and representation is always there when i need it. Sometimes I find things hard to understand as I have Aspergers, but HJA are always intelligible and succinct. There are not many people i trust, especially regarding my Liberty, but I do them, and thank them profusely for all their help.”
