“Ms Abbas acted for us in legal action at Gosford Local Court on 11 June 2014.
Prior to our appearance in court Ms. Abbas was in constant contact with us by phone and email so she could get the full facts and our statements of the charge against us.
We met at the court prior to the hearing where Ms. Abbas went through everything with us. She was fully briefed on our version of events and went through it with us so we could feel confident in court.
Ms. Abbas is very competent and professional in her approach to court procedure and she put her points across with confidence in a clear and precise manner.
We would use Ms. Abbas as a Solicitor if the need arises again and would thoroughly recommend her to our family and friends.”
“Uzma was incredibly patient with the client and did a great job with him today.
Jordan can be quite difficult and Uzma was quite patient with him.”
