What My Clients Say
“It was one appointment only. The fee was open and transparent and it resulted in safety for myself and my child. I felt valued and respected and never judged.”Name Withheld
“Angelique my lawyer was the best in this very stressful time for me.”Name Withheld
"Angelique played a key role in helping me to attain my discharge without conviction. She ensured I was aware of all the information I needed to gather so she could create an effective affidavit. This combined with the opening statement she wrote meant I came away with the best outcome I could hope for. We also experienced a lot of set-backs with my court dates being constantly changed but she did an excellent job of liaising with police and the courts and keeping me up to date on what was happening. Overall, I would highly recommend using her services."Name Withheld
