Mark Heselton
"My case was rather a unique one for Mark and his team to deal with as it involved dealing with historical matters with lots of mitigating factors, a very difficult applicant (slight understatement), and hours of ploughing through distractions to enable them to represent me (respondent). Mark assured me I was in safe hands and he would do his utmost to help me to achieve a positive outcome. He stood by his word. Indeed he went the extra mile to make sure I would be ok and could cope until the final hearing. I would highly recommend V&S." MS P
"You have been so considerate through this terrible time…in as much as anything can be a pleasure in these circumstances, it has been a pleasure to discuss this with you and I really appreciate all your help…”  SR
