Amy's accreditations and awards include:
Amy has a common sense and transparent approach. Survivors of child abuse, understandably, often have difficultly trusting professionals. Amy’s approach is therefore to build a professional relationship with her clients at their own pace.
“The very first-time mum spoke to Amy she noticed how easy she was to talk to and how she felt at ease immediately. Given the circumstances of having to rake up traumatic past events, this alone was a great start to their relationship. Amy also contacted me to explain who she was and how she would be helping mum. I knew from that first conversation that Amy was the right solicitor to help mum with her case.
Throughout the whole process Amy has been compassionate, understanding and communicative. I believe mum would have found this whole process too stressful and may not have had the courage and strength to see it through if it wasn’t for Amy. Amy has been a great support, while maintaining her professionalism with her caring nature. Mum and I can’t thank Amy enough”Child Abuse Compensation Client
