Some of what clients have to say about Sandra …..

“Sandra has an immense capacity to absorb the case notes, the pre-sentence report and our narratives, whilst also being a fantastic listener, making our daughter feel understood and getting her to grasp the situation she was in.

Sandra was both professional and warm, offering sound personal and legal advice to our daughter. Sandra managed to represent the complex medical and emotional traumas in our daughter’s story in a lucid and compelling way, contextualizing the situation for the magistrate.

The outcome was the best possible one whilst enabling justice to be done, so our daughter could appreciate the seriousness of her actions. I cannot commend Sandra Riordan enough, both myself and my husband and indeed our daughter, were very fortunate that she was the duty solicitor handing our daughter’s case. We all owe her a huge debt of gratitude for her wisdom and expertise.”

“I just wanted to say a big thank you for all your help and support throughout myhell for the past year. It is now at an end thanks to all your hard work, perseverance and belief in me.”

“Miss Sandra is best solicitor I have ever had.”
