Client Testimonials

Here’s a few kind words from some of the people we’ve helped over the years

It’s no understatement to say that without the support and guidance of Rod and his team during my recent legal proceedings, I would not have been able to manage.

It took just under two years to conclude, during which time I knew I could and indeed I did call upon Rod and team to not only ensure matters were in hand but to discuss all manner of concerns that arose as a result of the wait.

I would recommend the services Old Bailey Solicitors provide and the specialist expertise Rod brought to my particular case, that helped draw the outcome it did.

Client who avoided prison - June 2022

I just wanted to say a massive thank you from the bottom of my heart for your hard work, kindness and patience with regards to our case.   I’m not sure if you can comprehend the relief we as a family feel today. Thank you so very much.

A grateful mum, prison avoided for her son - April 2022

Thank you so much for all your help with this. I could cry! I truly do not know how you deal with this day in day out!

No further action taken by police - January 2022

I am immensely grateful to Rod and his team. Rod is approachable, pragmatic, honest and it astonished me how many tiny details he knew about my case in such little time. I would definitely recommend them.

No further action taken by police - October 2020

I couldn’t have asked for a better firm than Old Bailey Solicitors to defend me in the crown court. They went through my case with a fine-tooth comb and left no stone unturned, leading to a not guilty verdict.  The professional and emotional support I received from the team was second to none. I will recommend OBS for any matter and can assure the best outcome.

Acquitted client - May 2019

I really wanted to take a moment to thank you for your help. I would not have hesitated to hire your firm to represent me in my case. Likewise, I will personally recommend my friends and family (should future needs arise) to work with a great firm such as yours, and one people can trust with very high standards. Once again, my sincere thanks…it was very much appreciated.

My daughter and I were really impressed with Tim’s calm, helpful and understanding nature and he put us at ease in an awful situation.

Police station client - October 2018

Camilla, this is excellent news and I believe that this success is a direct result of your hard work and your extensive knowledge of the legal system.

August 2018 - Financial adviser's case dropped

Camilla, I would like to thank you formally for your support and advice during this stressful time, from the initial hearing through to the second and final hearing . In particular how you created a calming and supportive environment from the moment my son met you, which allowed him to engage and to tell his side of the story. My son felt at ease almost immediately which was a contrast to how he was leading up to the first hearing. I doubt whether the same outcome would have been achieved without your help and guidance, but even if the outcome was different I believe that my son was as prepared as best he could have been to face it, and that was down to you.

Parent of Camilla's client - June 2018

You have given him back 18 months of his life. None of us will ever be able to thank you enough, Rod, for your determination and wonderful execution at the Appeal.

Surgeon facing police investigation - July 2017

Rod Hayler is one of the most professional lawyers I have ever dealt with. No stone was left unturned throughout the case and he followed through with everything he said he would do, without me needing to ask for updates, he would phone or email me as soon as he had news. Very happy with the final result and I can finally get on with my life, onward and upwards. Thank you again for your time and dedication. It was the best money I’ve ever spent.

I just wanted to thank you for your guidance and help in my case. This was so useful and I reached the outcome I wished for. This would not have been possible without your help as it was a technical discussion that requires criminal law knowledge.

You prepared me so well by breaking down all the possible scenarios. I am very grateful and glad that our paths have crossed at the very last minute after more than one year and half wait.

No further action taken by police - January 2022

Jane, I just wanted to take a moment to thank you so much for your support. You have been amazing. I have gone through all kinds of emotions during this situation. Talking to you has been the tonic I’ve needed. 

…until speaking to you I’ve been angry with the system and don’t have too much belief in it.  Thank you for the time you have given me. 

Current client - July 2022

Words are just not enough to express my gratitude towards your dedication, hard work, perseverance and attention to details, let alone your professionalism throughout my case at the Court today.

You presented my case with compassion and you took time to listen to me and this means a lot and most importantly you believed my version of the facts.

Client who avoided prison - March 2021

Please pass on my huge thanks to Lex for what a fantastic job she did. After 7 hours in custody it was so lovely to have someone with a friendly face and kind manner put my mind and emotions at ease. Lex went above and beyond what was required in order to help me. So a very warm heartfelt thanks to her and to your firm – an absolute credit to the criminal justice system. The help to me was invaluable. Thank you so, so much.

You remained true to your words and because of your commitment to the case, we achieved the best possible outcome.
