Great Work!

Just wanted to say a big thanks for everything you did on this case. I think you have achieved the impossible! I didn’t think for one moment that an agreement would be reached between the two of them. It sounds like you really earned your fee(!) and I’m so grateful that the agreement also protected S.

Best Professional Consultancy by Sheila

Sheila taught me to see my situation in a different way and helped me to focus on the positive aspects at a time when I could no longer see them. She is very patient and understanding, and gave me the confidence to not only deal with this situation but with whatever comes my way.

Amazing experience with Shay

Sheila is always calm, composed, confident and nothing seems to faze her. Her knowledge of Law would appear to be extensive. Miss Aly was meticulous in her preparation of our brief and conducted herself professionally.

Shay well done!

Sheila managed to communicate the legal technicalities of the case in way which was wholly understood by laypeople – a skill many legal professionals lack these days and did so in an empathic, sensitive way.

I recommend to you Sheila Aly

I recommend to you Sheila Aly. When faced with the complexities of employment legislation, truth is never simple to expose. My experience of Sheila was that she listened and explained and with calm and careful reasoning represented the facts of my case. No gimmicks, no confusion and a strong legal mind.
