I would like to extend my sincerest thanks for representing me in this case. I can honestly say that for the first time in all my experiences in this case, I was proud to be represented by a competent solicitor. You were articulate, organized and well-composed. In my humble opinion, you argued this case brilliantly. As you are aware, good lawyers are hard to come by, and the general public does not have much regard for lawyers. However, there are always those few excellent ones who demonstrate a deep commitment to their clients. You are certainly in this category. I would highly recommend your services to anyone.
Over the years, I have had the privilege of representing many wonderful clients and meeting many people, some of whom have written to express their gratitude. A sample of these are listed below.
I have had the pleasure of working with Allan on a number of complex cases over the years and have found him to be singularly effective in recognizing the critical issues and addressing them in a very persuasive manner. I have also had many occasions to observe Allan’s appellate advocacy on a broad range of complicated matters. Across this range, Allan has displayed the ability to reduce complex matters to their essential terms and advance the most persuasive approach to the issues. I think very highly of Allan’s appellate skills and would have no hesitation in recommending him.
Allan is one of the finest appellate lawyers I have known. In consultation he is calm, deeply knowledgeable and very insightful. His written material is persuasive, thorough and conversational. In court he is at his best: a remarkable orator who is as focused on the content of his argument as he is on the subtleties of how he presents it. Most importantly, I know Allan to be a very conscientious and ethical practitioner. I have relied on his talents and advice in the past and will do so in the future.
Without hesitation I would highly recommend Allan to assist with any files that end up at an appeal. I have had the pleasure of working with Allan over the past few years and I have found his skill and preparedness top notch. His approach with clients is thoughtful and respectful. Allan’s factum writing is extraordinarily articulate, concise and very persuasive, with the right balance and tone. At the Court of Appeal, it is apparent that Allan is well-respected by the judiciary, and his overall presentation is to the point and understated. I know that retaining Allan would give my clients the best possible chance of success at the Court of Appeal.
As appeal counsel, Allan worked hard to master the complicated facts and law of an unusual and difficult case, producing good results for my clients. He stayed cool under fire as a well-prepared and experienced advocate. Allan understands how the Court of Appeal works.
