David Laws services provided


I was half way through a complicated Litigation case, as a defendant, when I found myself requiring my own independent advice so I googled 'Commercial Litigation Solicitors Norfolk', and after sifting through found three companies to call.

David was very friendly, and my first impression was he was going to give me an honest opinion. Of the three he was frank and upfront, and made sure I was aware of the worst case scenario. In the event his advice was sound and, driven by our shared passion to put right an injustice, he managed the remainder of my case for the final outcome to be very much in my favour. Throughout the case David had been thoughtful, helpful, direct, professional and most importantly for me, friendly.

If you want the personal touch from your lawyer then you would not do better than instruct David Laws.

I am writing to congratulate David Laws on achieving an extremely high level of consistent excellent service.

Even though Surekil Pest Control is an Australian Company, I have been really pleased with the advice and assistance David has given me over the years. He has always responded to my enquiries both promptly and efficiently, and despite the distance and time difference, I have always found it easy to call him whenever necessary for guidance on various business issues.

His knowledge, experience and professionalism cannot be faulted and I recommend him without reservation.

David has acted for me on various matters for many years, both in his previous capacity as a partner in Rogers & Norton, and more recently in his own practice. I have always valued our relationship highly, and have come to depend on his extensive experience, professionalism and incisive ability to know exactly what is needed. In some 40 years of working closely with the legal profession, David is the one person that could count on taking my business with him, wherever he moved.

As a business owner in Australia finding myself up against some European legal elements David was of exceptional service. He provided relevant, sound legal advice on the issue at hand in a calm, simple manner, without blinding me with legalese. I have always found him to be intelligent, courteous, efficient and effective, with integrity and the ability to be creative in finding solutions, as well as being nice and normal, which is always good when dealing with the legal profession. His advice saved me money and time and kept me out of an uncomfortable situation.

We are eternally grateful to David Laws for his help with a legal situation.

Prior to consulting him we had been receiving a barrage of unpleasant and rather bullying letters. It felt awful to keep finding them on the doormat. As soon as David took up the case it felt such a relief, as if a protective shield had come down around us. He was honest, telling us which bits were worth pursuing and made no false promises but just dealt with the issue very effectively without allowing himself to be drawn into the general unpleasantness and protecting us from it.

It seems to us that David possesses a wonderful combination of very sharp legal thought process and understanding, which we believe proved to our advantage, coupled with an innate insight into human nature. His ‘gut instincts’ proved spot on every time.

We found him to be a man of honesty and integrity, someone you can trust and the sort of person you would want on your side every time. Quietly, calmly effective.
