Great service from start to finish. Miss Shideh Mirshamsi was exceptional from our first conversation over the phone until everything was resolved. Professional and confident and put the whole situation into perspective and got the right result. Would highly recommend and would definitely use again. Thanks for all your help and wish you and the company all the best for the future.

I would highly recommend Ms Shideh Mirshamsi for legal representation. She is a solicitor who actively listens to her clients and gives reliable and honest advice. A confident solicitor who is dedicated to her clients’ needs.

Mary saved my life. I don’t know enough about the law to defend myself and they would have eaten me alive. I will never use anyone else again. Alexander Bennett has earned my full trust.

My solicitor Mary was 100% reliable and brilliant. From the moment I met her she made herself completely available for any questions and concerns I had and should I ever need a solicitor in the future without a doubt she and Alexander Bennett would be my first call. I couldn’t recommend them highly enough

M. Ogunbiyi 

From the moment I spoke to Shideh and Prashant, they did everything to help and filled me with confidence. I was amazed by the representation all the way through.


Good Solicitors, very hard to find on Legal Aid. Very happy.


I had confidence that Ms. Mirshamsi would achieve the right result for me, and that is what happened.


Your team were so helpful, I’ll recommend you. I’ll also be using you for other services in future.


I was treated in a most exemplary fashion, despite my ethnicity and disability. I’m convinced I could not have been better represented by any other firm of solicitors.
