Tell us something that not many people would know about you?

I got married on the Empire State Building.

If you weren’t a lawyer or in your current profession, what would you be doing?



I found Jane Anderson to be most professional and very down to earth. Her advice was most helpful and I would have no hesitation in recommending her to others who found themselves in a similar situation to that in which I found myself.

I didn't know what to expect, but Jane Anderson showed a very genuine interest, was completely, even "forensically" aware of all aspects of the case, spotting facts and drawing inferences that I had missed.

I can say, without exaggeration, that I have total confidence in her. In the unfortunate event that I should need a criminal lawyer again, I would not even consider anyone else.

All that and she is a good egg too!

Jane Anderson dealt with my case in a friendly, efficient and totally professional way. She put me at my ease and achieved a successful outcome with minimum fuss.
