“John has been my lawyer for more than twenty years. He has given me brilliant advice and help – perfectly pitched for each situation, every time I’ve needed it, while also keeping the bills to a minimum. He knows his stuff but at the same time has his feet firmly on the ground. He has become a friend too, and I value his friendship as well as being relieved to have a lawyer I can completely trust.” Jane Sebba
