"Having been accused of a very serious allegation, I was advised to get legal representation sooner rather than later. I have to say that it was great advice. After my initial meeting with Steve Foster, I felt very comfortable and confident with him. Although at that stage it wasn’t clear as to what would happen next, Steve was very supportive and answered the numerous questions I had. I have to say that nothing was too much trouble for Steve. He always remained very professional, very supportive and he even took calls from me at the weekend in order to help me understand what was happening. He dealt with my concerns and reassured me every step of the way.
As the allegation and proceedings developed, Paul Coleman became part of the team. Both Steve and Paul encouraged me to involve my wife in our meetings. This not only provided me with support at home, but also helped her to understand what was happening and also what was likely to happen. Both Steve and Paul provided us both great support throughout. Until this all happened we had never had any involvement with the Police or the law courts. It made it all so much easier having them both available during the attendances at both the police station and courts and they both took the time to make sure we were both comfortable with the surroundings and fully understanding of what was going on.
Due to the hard work of Steve, Paul and my barrister, justice was served and I was acquitted after the judge dismissed the case against me at the end of the prosecution’s case. I truly feel that, had they not all been as professional and understanding of the case facts and the law as they were, things may have ended differently.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Steve and Paul. They made what was a very upsetting and stressful time for my wife and I as smooth as it could be, offering professional advice and support throughout. They have continued to offer me support and assistance post trial."
