Feedback

“In my dealings with Mr Green, I have found him to be reliable, professional and approachable. I have been impressed with his legal knowledge and his ability to quickly identify and understand the relevant issues involved in complex matters. He always communicates clearly and promptly.

He conveys a sense of calm and I have felt confident in his abilities and that he will do the best for the client. 

“Mr Green has been appearing before me for many years.

His case preparation is excellent. He has a full command of the paperwork and it is clear as soon as he starts presenting the case that he has prepared the case with great thought for exactly what is required in the particular circumstances of the hearing. 

He is an analytical, adaptable, flexible, courteous and persuasive advocate. He focuses on what is relevant and easily distinguishes between the facts and the law. He is fluent and stylish.

He copes very well with interruptions and comments by the judge.

He is respectful and at the same time determined. I have never seen him lost for words or flustered. He is calm and measured. He understands what the judge needs to know, and that is an essential skill of an advocate.” District Judge LC – Judge – 25/3/2021
