Rachel represented me in a complicated court case and contract negotiations achieving a very favourable final outcome. She combines thorough legal knowledge with strategic and “out of the box” thinking which she demonstrated during the proceedings. She was recommended to me by other lawyers and as a lawyer myself I speak very highly of her work.
A Lawyer with a Heart — Rachel is a seasoned professional with the ability to simplify complex topics for her clients. She was able to support me during a very difficult time not only by offering her professional support but also by helping me to navigate through extremely emotional circumstances. Her judgement and advice were at all times sound and I felt safe to have her not just as a lawyer but also a friend. I definitely recommend Rachel as a lawyer with a heart and thank her from the bottom of mine!
From the outset Rachel has been nothing but fantastic and professional, whilst managing a very difficult situation she understood the complexity of the situation and challenge ahead and was exceptionally supportive and guided me through the whole process with constant reassurance which I deeply valued. Her advice throughout the whole process with regular updates and suggesting the best route to follow was outstanding and I honestly don't think we would have got the resolution we got without Rachel and her team looking after the case, especially with a set of difficult employees. I would not hesitate to recommend Rachel for anything employment related, in fact I have already have and if I need an expert opinion in future on employment related matters then she will be my first point of contact. Thank you for your help and support.
Rachel is a consummate professional. Her preparation is a key factor. Understanding her clients and the challenges they face, putting things into perspective, but always trying to achieve the best possible result, not just from a financial standpoint, but to protect one's reputation and emotions too. Rachel kept me informed all the way, providing reassurance and taking away the stress that comes with the territory. Her delivery through her representation is passionate and genuine. As a senior manager within financial services for more than 3 decades, I cannot recommend Rachel Spink highly enough. I hope I never have to come up against her! Thank you sincerely.
I cannot thank you enough for all your help on this matter. I wouldn't have made it to this point with the same emotional well-being without your dedication, responsiveness and thoughtful support.
Rachel was professional, unflappable and meticulous, taking initiative whilst always ensuring the path we took was based on my aims during the process.
I could place my utmost trust in Rachel and enjoyed dealing with her which really helped lift the load during a difficult time.
I was informed at every step and always, our discussions were followed up in writing to enable me to digest all the information and options we had discussed. At the times that my confidence was failing her experience would prevail.
I would highly recommend Rachel.
Rachel gave me full support throughout my employment discrimination case, from the moment I spoke to her she put me at ease. Extremely professional and personable, she explained everything, making the process and my situation less stressful.
