Anoushka stepped in as lawyer at my sentencing because my assigned lawyer was unavailable. At first, I was nervous to have a new lawyer at the last minute. Especially at sentencing because my charges are serious and I am facing imprisonment. However, with limited knowledge of the facts and a grumpy judge, Anoushka got the desired outcome. My sentencing got put off so I could complete programmes to reduce my sentence and better myself.
Me and my family were really impressed. The biggest thing for me is I felt she actually cared. The law can make you feel like just another face, another number. She made me feel like someone was batting for me. I even tried to sack my assigned lawyer, so I could use her full time! A lawyer who listens and actually represents you.

Thank you Anoushka for the great job you have done for my son. Even though he made a big mistake, he has had a big wakeup call and won’t be making this mistake again. By successfully appealing to get a discharge without conviction he now has a second chance at life.
Anoushka was systematic and professional in her approach. I felt confident that she knew what she was doing and this was a huge relief in a highly stress time of my life.
Anoushka’s knowledge of the law and her judgement are second to none. She was always willing to listen to me, even when others didn’t believe in my innocence. She was willing to fight for my cause and was a shining light in a very dark time in my life
