We would like to share with you some of the feedback we have had from satisfied clients:

Andrew Henley is sensational!

I had got into a fix and was not sure where to go for advice. The Internet provided the usual roster of faceless firms and ‘remote’ lawyers. And then there was Mr Henley. He told me straight that he was expensive; that there were very competent and cheaper options he could point in my direction. He also told me who to avoid. He sugar-coated nothing in terms of likely outcomes. He was pragmatic, realistic, reassuring and serene. I did not expect serenity to be so important but from time-to-time as I went into meltdown his composure and calm were a huge help. Without him, I am not sure how I would have coped through the process.

Why so good?

We had a fully comprehensive, preliminary meeting – no stone left un-turned.

He answered all my calls.

He was forbearance personified in dealing with my stream of ranting, self-pitying text messages.

…..But most of all……

When I got to court I knew my lawyer and he knew me. He understood me – my remorse; my shame; my fears. I can tell through first-hand experience that most – if not all – of the lawyers I saw in the court ante-room were meeting their clients for the first time – probably the first time they actually spoke to each other.

On the day itself there were some last-minute ‘twists and turns’ that could have had a severely detrimental impact upon my case. Andrew handled these mini crises with complete aplomb.

I left the courtroom with a penalty and sanction (all deserved) way, way below the magistrates suggested guidelines?

Why? I had a barrister who knew how to present a case in a Magistrate’s court; who knew how the court worked and who knew how to authentically represent his client.

I realize that I am biased and that some of the emotion of the whole two weeks is starting to re-appear in these words. However, I don’t care. Andrew Henley is the consummate professional and I would recommend him to all-comers. You most certainly get what you pay for.

As a family man, business professional and believer in doing the right thing I searched across many sites for a solicitor & lawyer to represent me in court. After speaking to over 5+ different Solicitors & companies I was sick of all the fluffy information and discussion of costs and eventually and thank God, I found Andrew Henley, Private Client Barrister specialising in Regulatory, private crime and road traffic matters, this was the best find ever. Andrew was more than just an amazing Barrister who knew all the laws inside and out, but knew how to work with people, families and my own personal circumstances, which in my case were needed and proved invaluable

I am so very glad that you were able to represent me and the words “Thank You” don’t really do justice to the gratitude that I have, not only for the excellent representation but also the moral support and guidance throughout the court process. I would not have managed alone and I felt greatly comforted by your manner and experience which I would not have felt with the other legal professionals that I witnessed on the day.

Dear Mr Henley,

We cannot thank you enough for being our barrister. To be honest, I used to think that barristers do not make a difference, but you have changed my view regarding this forever. Your professionalism, expertise and knowledge is invaluable. You went over and above what we were expecting from a very busy barrister. We had certain worries and concerns but your presence and performance was a true blessing and comfort. We thought, we have been blessed to have met you. For me and my wife you are the “Greatest of all barristers” in England and we mean it.

Yet again, thank you so much Mr Henley for a job well done! We wish you incredible success for years to come.
We would highly recommend your services to anyone looking for an exceptional barrister..

Best wishes

After my recent hearing at the Crown Court I feel compelled to write to you to thank you for your excellent advice and legal expertise in my matter.
When first confronted with my dilemma I was not sure which way to turn, but after speaking with you I instantly felt at ease and the subsequent outcome and my instinctive feelings towards you have been proved to be correct.
After working with you I would recommend you to all my friends and family who may need assistance.
May I take this opportunity to say a big thank you for your work as I feel you worked brilliantly.

I just wanted to thank you for everything you did for me during my trial. I’ve never had a barrister before, but found you were always professional, but provided a personal service which made proceedings of the trial easier to deal with. You kept in constant contact with me via phone and email. You always reassured me that you were doing your very best and at no point did I feel you did not have my best interests as priority. I would definitely recommend Andrew Henley as someone who can really help with his experience and calming persona. In all, the services provided to me by Andrew Henley were nothing short of 10 out of 10.

We were most impressed by the professionalism which Andrew showed in our case, which explored areas of law not directly within Andrew’s field of expertise. Not only was he thorough in his research, but he treated what was a personal problem with the level of personal interest that made us feel that our case was individual and important, rather than one of many. He was supportive and followed up with language which was understandable to a lay person.

I have no hesitation in recommending Andrew to anyone who finds themselves in a position where they need legal motoring expertise.

Andrew, from our first conversation you were absolutely professional, understanding and helpful. You communicated the legal framework around my case effectively, answered all of my layman’s questions, and ensured I understood at all stages what I should expect. I would absolutely recommend you to anyone I know seeking representation in your areas of expertise.
