I attended a JSM yesterday in Leeds at which Roisin Paterson was present. I had taken out a personal injury claim against my employer, the Home Office, for which Roisin was my legal representative accompanied by the lawyer she instructed. My own observation is that Roisin has provided me with invaluable legal expertise and advice and throughout a three year period she has not only kept me informed but also fully involved allowing me to make informed decisions and when doing so being aware of the consequences and likely outcomes. I believe her calm and sensitive behaviour belies a steely determination and resilience to deliver the best value for her client and in my instance this was achieved. At times I can be rather combative but Roisin was able to deal with any volatile emotions without losing sight of her brief and always in a professional and considered manner. I doubt I could have coped with the obfuscation, delays and deliberate prevarication my employer used without her. She was able to provide re- assurance when necessary but more importantly helped me focus on the achievable rather than the wishful. Roisin is an absolute credit to your organisation and her profession. I would have no hesitation in strongly recommending her to others. I am so grateful to her and thankful that I chose Michael Lewin as my legal representative.
Service and advice throughout the case was excellent. Roisin kept me informed at every stage; no easy task at times as I am overseas
