"As someone dealing with clients who are often at their most vulnerable and in need of support, clear advice and guidance, Kirpal is immensely talented and highly capable. She matches this with a balanced empathy which most would envy, whilst at the same time ensuring that the best legal interests of the client are at the heart of her work. She is an enormous asset to your company and whilst she would no doubt under-emphasise both her skill and her interpersonal abilities, I am able to say that what she did for me and the way in which she did it has made a huge impression, which will not be forgotten. I will not hesitate to recommend Kirpal, nor indeed Flint Bishop, in the future, thank you very much."

"You have been an incredible support during a very difficult time and I truly value your advice. I also feel that the outcome of the children’s case was very much a reflection of your hard work for which I cannot thank you enough."
