Kayleigh argued my case very persuasively in both her written and oral submissions. It was very clear that she was completely on top of the papers and was very confident and reassuring. The case took a surprising turn and despite her year of call, Kayleigh was not flummoxed in any way. She remained professional, calm, and dealt with the issues extremely well throughout the case. In court, she was equally impressive and managed to get me an outcome that was everything I wanted. “
