Shila Kesvari, Partner Of Edward Fail, Bradshaw & Waterson

Saloud Zaman receives my instructions in respect of preparing my criminal and prison law bills which are submitted to the Legal Aid Agency for assessment and payment. I would describe Saloud as having an encyclopaedic knowledge of the rules and guidance in respect of billing files correctly in accordance with the provisions as set out under the Legal Aid contract. Saloud's approach has always been professional yet approachable as he always provides solid and clear advice as and when required. Saloud is also exceptionally hardworking and very diligent. He provides a professional service throughout and comes highly recommended.

 

Semin Taner, Associate Of Russell-Cooke Solicitors

I have no hesitation in recommending your services and am grateful for your knowledge, diligence and thoroughness in costing my files.

 

Simon Grove, Partner Of JD Spicer Zeb Solicitors

I have instructed you to provide cost drafting services for my firm for over 18 months. Almost all the files I have sent you have been legally aided care cases. I have allowed you access to my firm's CCMS account to enable you to prepare and submit bills. I have been satisfied with the work you have done and continue to instruct you. I am a partner in my firm and have been a solicitor for over thirty years.
