I found Sam M to be a Fantastic person, He Kept in touch with me throughout my experience, he kept me calm and communicated with me and my legal representative Ms Stephanie H, I found her very easy to talk to, she listened and she acted in my best interests. I felt she was very professional and a great negotiator. I’m waiting for the signed court order and also the physical actions to be completed mid May 2021. Fingers crossed we can all move forward. I hope its ok to write this review before May” Antonia Onwuli “Since the first time I came in contact with Clerksroom and Sam Morgan about 18 months ago. Sam has been excellent, professional, kind, considerate and always willing to assist. Sam is one person you can rely on. Once he says to you "leave it with me, I will see to it" be sure that he will definitely see to it more especially taking into consideration your affordability/costs. My recent court hearing which my previous fantastic barrister was unable to present me due to other commitments, I was worried of the thought of having a different barrister taking up my case and immediately contacted Sam, as usual, he said that I should leave it with him, within 20 minutes he came back to me with barrister's name. Then Stephanie Heijdra's profile was sent to me by Sam. Stephanie Heijdra represented me and did a great job at such a short notice. Stephanie is very approachable, calm, professional and a good listener. We talked as if we had known each other for a long time. She was very interested and had the time to listened to the background of my case, asking relevant questions that would assist to understand the best way to represent me in order to achieved the best outcome for me. I would definitely recommend Stephanie any day and any time, She is fantastic.” Thomas “Truly blown away about this fantastic team (Legal support Service), always contactable and responsive, friendly, supportive and have the highest standards in their specialism.
