"Jessica is one of the hardest working people that I know. She has an excellent and well deserved reputation within her field of Employment Law. If you are looking for someone to give sensible and helpful advice, and to always be there when you need them (and I mean always) then Jessica is the one for you.
Jessica was our external legal advisor and helped us with all of our tricky legal issues for over 10 years. The advice we got was always sound – and you got advice that was helpful, rather than just being given all the options! She has the most incredible work ethic and we have regularly exchanged e-mail at 10pm at night, and when she is on vacation – this is how she keeps her many customers satisfied, but she never sounds rushed or busy when you call for help.
I couldn’t recommend her more highly."
