"Jessica and I both worked at Fladgate Fielder and I can honestly say she is one of the hardest working lawyers I know, often working late at night and during her holidays. She provides practical advice with an experienced and realistic view on potential outcomes. Jessica is not afraid to take on large organisations and deal with complex matters involving numerous witnesses and vast amounts of detailed information. Jessica is very knowledgeable, professional and personable and I have a very high regard for her legal skills."February 10, 2011
