  • “We deal with many incredibly vulnerable clients who are often torture survivors. Over the years we have dealt with many solicitors and we feel that Rory is by far the best for a number of reasons. He is efficient, he seems to work in a parallel universe which has more hours than we do. He communicates every new event that happens to our clients and to us and asks for our support when needed. He really works in partnership with us. He gets our clients immediately and chases up every due date, is continually proactive and very importantly has won pretty much all our cases.”
